Bazooka bubble gum has decided it is time to put an end to the antics of our old buddy Bazooka Joe. (click)
Apparently they don't think today's kids appreciate the same corny humor that we once loved. I haven't eaten a Twinkie in many years and I no longer chew bubble gum, but knowing these childhood icons are disappearing makes me sad.
What do you suppose will be next?
They built a new Drive In theater near Houston a couple years ago.
Driving 125 miles over terrible roads to get a Pizza pie.
Do they still put baseball cards in bubble gum?
Judging by the taste, the last time I bought any, I'd say yes....yes they do.
When I was a kid they decided to put out Monkee cards with scenes from 'the Monkees' TV show on them. I suffered through that brittle powdery gum for a whole summer. I felt real sorry for the avid card collectors that had to chew that stuff all the time.
I used to throw away the gum to get the baseball cards. Boy, I showed them people what i thought of their gum....!!
