    Can't say I've ever tried it, but I have heard of it.

    So the gum is staying but the comics aren't? Wow, baby out with the bathwater. That stuff is barely palatable as it was - hard as a rock, flavor gone in seconds.

    as a kid, my barber used to give me penny candies or Bazooka Joe for being still during a haircut.
    damn, this isn't heartbreaking, but it does cause a moment of reflection.

    I would be shocked if this lasts any real length of time. I remember when Tropicana tried to modernize it's look. People complained so much they changed it back after less than a month.

    Wow... that sucks! The comic was the reason I spent ten cents on it when I was a kid. Now it's just a stale flavorless brick.

    I remember Bazooka-joe and the comic inside. I remember getting those at the barber shop when I was a kid.

    :lol  No doubt! We used to stack 'em up like Big Macs just to get a little extra flava! The comics were good tho'. Ah well, c'est la vie!
