Would a Free Lousy Pack of Gum Bring Down Wrigley’s? — 9 Comments

  1. Wrigley’s used to send annually about ten packages of gum to its stockholders. My father was on the receving end, and they always sent Juicy Fruit when I was young. They switched to Extra in recent years. Then the free gum stopped when Wrigley sold out to Mars in 2008.

    Gum chewing is a nasty habbit. My brother used to drive me nuts with his loud “chomp, chomp, chomp, chomp.”

  2. @Catch Her In The Wry: Yay! You are easing back into the “after-taxes” world! Believe me, I don’t “chonk” my gum (Nancy’s word) she would never let me get away with it!
    (BTW: you didn’t spell check! – I guess I need to add that “edit” plug in for comments. I’ll go look it up.)

    FYI: If you ain’t chonkin’ yore gum, you’re missin’ half the enjoymint.

    When I was a little kid, I found that Bazooka was always best for helping remove loose teeth. But you had to chew very carefully, because you didn’t want to deprive the tooth fairy of her booty.

    You’re a gum swallower aren’t you!

    Most decidedly not. I limit my swallowing to nutritive things like Entenmann’s Chocolate Donuts and — here in Kentucky — my anger.

  5. I was a Bazooka and Juicy Fruit lover as a kid too…BIG TIME. My Aunt use to work for Wrigley’s for years and would always have loads of Juicy Fruit, Doublemint, Beamons, etc. to give me….NIRVANA! I still chew gum a lot, but try to get the sugarless kind when I can. I like Extra too; but when I happen to see Bazooka, I’m SO tempted to get it….my favorite. Darn, if my Aunt were still alive….you’d get your free gum Mark. ~Joy

  6. @Joy: I forgot about Beamons! Yes, I liked that too. Still don’t like Doublemint, but can’t get the twins out of my mind.
    Double the pleasure, double the fun with Doublemint, Doublemint, Doublemint gum. (I think it was the tight sweaters and the cone bras I remember.)
