    I think the five and dimes have been replaced by the dollar stores, but Bazooka Joe lives down the street. I like the Vintaj Fairy Petals bead cap with the rhodonite, and the Czech glass rondelles do look like a wad of bubble gum.

    I love this pick–its going straight to my favorites! I used to love getting the little wax paper comics wrapped around the inside of Bazooka!

    And those silly little comics, yes! It’s been a while since I had some bubble gum and popped and cracked it! Great pick!

    Ah … the joys of childhood, we all loved Bazooka Joe Bubble Gum. The comics were the special extra, like what you’d get in a box of Cracker Jacks. We’d try to see just how many pieces we could chew at once.

    Fantastic pick!

    I had forgotten about those silly little comics! Sometimes if the gum had been in the store for a long time, It took a lot of saliva and jaw strength to get the wad going properly. This is terrific pick, Becky! Thanks for the memories!

    Lovely pick for your wonderful childhood memory, Becky! I loved going to the store for bubble gum…seeing how many I could chew so I could blow great big bubbles :)

    :) I’m happy to see this iconic pink stuff unleashed so many memories. :) The stuff could be a rock and it did take a few pieces and a hefty jaw workout to get a really nice bubble going. I had a friend who could reliably blow bubbles as big as her face and not get them stuck in her hair when they popped. :) thanks for the big grin, ladies! :)
