    Was that stuff actually gum? Every time I unwrapped a piece and stuck it into my mouth to chew it, it was rock hard. I'd get sore mandible muscles trying to chew that stuff. :goofygrin

    And there you have it. For those all nostalgic about it, ask yourself this question: When is the last time that I bought "Bazooka Joe" gum? And before you say, "I bought it for the grandkids", consider the damage done to that relationship by that purchase.

    "sigh" The many paths that today's adult can take to travel down to the nostalgia of their childhood are slowly disappearing. First Twinkies, some what fun prizes in Cracker Jack ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwq_x9QsLzg ) and now Bazooka Joe and gang.
