Remember these?

Recently, while in a local candy store, looking for my version of crack (that would be a very special variety of strawberry gummies), I spotted this display. I was immediately taken back to Sunday mornings at the corner store (before convenience stores) with my Dad. He bought the Sunday LA Times and beer nuts while I begged for Clove gum because I had seen it at my Grandma's house. I thought and still do, that Blackjack and anything with black licorice was yucky and I don't recall the flavor of Beemans. Does this gum bring back any memories for you? What was your favorite? Let me know in the comments.

Ahh, memories! My Grandpa used to sit me down every Sunday afternoon and pull out a pack of Juicy Fruit gum from his pocket, and read the Sunday comics to me. It was such a treat! I loved the Clove gum too! It's fun to see these re-appear from time to time!
