Candy of the Month JULY

This Month's candy may prove to be a bit of a challenge for some of you - but since the prize is an original Sweet B Folk Art Lollipop man - I wanted to test your candy hunting abilities!




July's Candy is Fruit Stripe Gum!

Fruit Stripe Gum will take you waaaaaaaay back to the days of childhood - where gum was full of SUGAR and FLAVOR - (three minutes of flavor to be precise)!

Fruit stripe gum is the ONLY gum with painted on stripes. In the traditional pack - you will find five flavors: cherry, peach, melon, lemon and orange. There is also a fruity assortment available in a pink wrapper: cherry, grape, mixed fruit, lemon and cotton candy!

Fruit Stripe gum was invented and lunched in the 1960's as an extension of the Beech-nut gum brand.



Today, Fruit Stripe Gum wrappers come with one or more temporary tattoos featuring - "Yipes" the Fruit Stripe Zebra.


Unfortunately the sweet fruitiness of this gum only lasts for about three minutes. But with these cute stripes and fruity scent - who cares!



Chew your FRUIT STRIPE GUM!

Hi Amelia, I use to love Fruit Stripe gum when I was little.

I will post something on my blog when I get back from vacation.

Happy 4th of July to you and your Family.

Please - I must join your candy club! I remember that gum - I don't think the flavor lasted that long, but it was so fun to look at the striped gum and smell it! HA!

Very yummy indeed. I loved the striped and the wonderfully sweet aroma. Always sad that it never lasted long enough. Loved seeing the tattoo. Did I have a quick flash of the past? Yes I did :)
