Very inexpensive gum that came 5 sticks to a pack. The package was a medium blue color, and the sticks of gum were bright pink and contained a lot of softner and had a great distintive flavor. Even after the sugar left the gum it was still a joy to chew because of how soft it was.

The chum gum we had in early 60s came 2 sticks to a pack. Wrapped in white paper around the gum. Then the blue wrapper around that. Loved that flavor. Does anyone know if you can get the candy lipsticks thanks

I covered this in the Seventies page, but I'll do it here for those who only read the Eighties page. The Frank Fleer Company made Chum Gum from 1950 to 1971. For several years after, the gum was still being sold in candy or small grocers who bought large quantities of it. Chum Gum had checkered popularity because Fleer devoted all advertising money on its flagship product, Dubble Bubble. Chum Gum gained some sales steam in the mid 1960s, but toward 1970, new chewing and bubble gum products glutted the market, leaving sparse demand for it. Fleer simply "moved on" and stopped production of Chum Gum as 1971 ended. The Chum Gum page in the Seventies blog has tons of comments for those interested.
