Im fairly certain that big league chew came out in the 80's... A somewhat misguided product made of shreded gum made to simulate tobacco chew that major league baseball players were imfamous for spitting. Genius.

I used to stuff the whole bag in my mouth. The sweetness was orgasmic.

Probably contributed to my 10 year cigarette addiction.

I wouldn't consider this product misguided. It was pitched as a non-cancer causing alternative to chewing tobacco, which we abused a lot when I was a kid. Sure, it rots your teeth but teeth can be fixed. Cancer, however, is a much more serious condition.

I failed to mention the best thing about this product in my last comment. I now remember that the package said, "MAN SIZE WADS" on it, and that made my Aunt laugh hysterically. I was a kid then and it took me several years to get the joke.

I swear they had a Dr. Pepper flavor for a while and nobody believes me. I only remember this because I nearly choked on a huge piece of it back in elementary school.

I liked the grape, chewing the whole pouch at once kinda made my teeth hurt though.

Mmmmm GRAPE!!! I remember sometimes not chewing it fast enough and because of all the salivating I would swallow some of it! Hahaha

Big League Chew is awesome. I still buy a pouch of it once in a while at the local drug store or grocery store.

My favorite was grape and I can't find it anymore. As kids we would walk around with it in our bottom lip thinking we were the s***. LOL Those were good times

I used to get BLC quite often as a kid. I sure enjoyed a big wad of that stuff!

I used to love this stuff as a kid, now though, I wonder just what they were promoting and am rather surprised it is still on the market.

It's cool how as 11 year old baseball players we could pretend to be "dipping" just like the big leaguers! And, it was just good gun. We'd keep it in our back baseball pants pockets just like the ballplayers from the 70s&80s.

Would put almost the whole pack in my mouth when playing baseball. Made me feel like a major leaguer. The grape one was delish.
