I've heard of that. I've had clove gum, though I'm not sure it was Beeman's. Sure generates a lot of heat. God knows what that taffee will do. I guess you'll find out if you find some.

Bet that Beeman's Original Pepsin gum has myriad uses. Bet you could even play tic-tac-toe with it.:-)

They stop being retro after a while. That's just ANTIQUE! :P

I love clove gum, used to have to order it online. Now I find it all over the place. Yum!

And, by the way, the toes are red but the boy toy prefers I not post photos. Something about internet stalkers and pretty girls... Sorry!

Get that Black Jack away from me! I hated that crap! Beeman's was good stuff. Clove? Saw it, never tried it. I loved those cherry cough drops by the Smith Brothers!

My grandfather used to offer us Beeman's Gum when we visited.

What a dusty memory! That was so-o-o long ago.
