I know these tiny, soapy tasting, stick to your teeth, chewy candies were a real hit amongst the kids when I was in 5th/6th grade. One of the only places that they could be found was the "candy hut" at Sears. I haven't seen them at all in years. As silly as it seems now, we really enjoyed trying to figure out what kind of "soap" made each colorful little morsel.

You can find floral gums and cherry lips at "The Old Tyme Candy Shop" in Canmore, Alberta. Found them after 20 years of looking, baby! (I own an organic food store in Cochrane, Alberta, so I'm not really into all things candy, but Floral Gums are fabulous, NON ORGANIC happy candies!!)

I so remember my dad getting us the soap flavored gum when we were in a mall once in Saskatoon. It was called Thrill or Thrills. I didn't mind it too much but my sisters didn't like it they all had to spit the gum out.
