A hard piece of candy with the tiniest bit of gum on the inside.That had a great taste but kept you wanting more to chew.

You pronounced it 'Big Blow'. Or at least, that's what the big kids told us. Never could figure that one out.

I loved this candy as a kid. The gums are still sold in urban corner stores for 10cents. Big Bol used to come in two sizes- the "large peppermint" size and the regular sucking candy size. I buy some whenever i have the chance. But now as an adult, I always worry that I might accidentally swallow the candy and choke while Im on the bus. Like SZA said, as kids we always called it Big Blow, but I just recently noticed that the wrapper says Big Bol

Finally found this candy after searching and searching. It's not exactly as I remember it. First, the new ones are way too small. Secondly, it used to have a hardier shape. Finally, the flavor is close, but not exactly right. Still nice for some nostalgia!

I loved this gum as a kid. I thought it was BIG BLOW ALSO. I just found the gum on the internet and am enjoying the taste again. I wish I could find the fortune gum. I think it was called chew man chew. Not sure of that though.

this was the best candy gum ever! I have probably chewed thousands of these as a child. i found fortune bubble on amazon recently, although it was good the taste is not exactly as I remembered. someone said they probably took the arcenic out that they used to put in it in the 90's.

Mid 1970s we were bused to school in a shady Ft. Lauderdale neighborhood. We ran as fast as we could to "Lil" Man's grocery on the corner. Big Bol cost 2 cents each. Filled our pockets then ran as fast as we could to beat the tardy bell. We sold some in our neighborhood for a dime each. Those were the days.
