The gum had all these funky colors and the taste only lasted for about 3 min's...and had a zebra of different colors on the pack.

The last time I had this gum it was probably 16 years ago in 1992. I never had it again because I stopped chewing gum for awhile. So I don't remember if I liked it or not, but it always came with tattoos and still does.

You only chewed it for the stripes. It tasted like crap. I found some not long ago at Toys R Us and bought it for my kids; they turned up their noses...oh well. The nostalgia stops here.

I loved this gum as a kid. The flavor lasted maybe a minute then it tasted like someone pooped on your tounge!

I bought Fruit Stripe gum all the time, even though the flavor lasted about 0.5 seconds.

Yeah, like you all say, the flavor didn't last long, but was accurately fruity, in a way other gums of the era couldn't imitate. The happiest gum on the market in the 70's.

OMG to the max. Yes, I think these are still out there, but I have forgetton about that Chocolate gum until Angelia ann mentioned it! That is so crazy. It was around 1973 and my brother and I thought that was so cool. Probably because we were small kids. But Don't think I thought about that in quite literally 40 years! Thanks for jogging my memeory. So cool!

Came out in the early 60s, and yes, they did have a Chocolate Stripe in the 70s
