I never produced good bubbles either, especially when they go pop

Mine nearly always exploded and ended up plastered round my mouth and nose.

Do you remember those woody liquorish sticks? great when you had a loose tooth to come out. Can you still get them? The liquorish not the loose tooth

I remember as a kid getting some bubble gum from Nelsons at the bottom
of Wallgate ..chewing it and it went to nothing..isn't it funny,the things that stick in your mind from childhood.

As well as Beechnut I chewed Arrowmint, though I haven't chewed gum for a very long time as I had a crown put in and gum tended to stick to it, so I opted to suck on a Fisherman's Friend.

Can't remember the town centre pavements being full of spat out gum like how they are now, wonder if it was a different mix of gum back then, or was we environmentally friendly and put it in litter bins or stuck it under café and bus seats.

Does your chewing gum lose its flavour

Aye, and he started that craze of using old tea chests as a double bass and pinching mothers washboard and thimbles to play your own brand of skiffle.

Do you remember the machines for chewing gum outside the shop and every fourth person got two for the price of one.
