i recently spied some gold rush and bought it for a nostalgia trip - it does taste the same, the memories came flooding back, and it was surprising how mild and weak it was compared to todays gum.

I love bubble gum that's made into weird shapes and packaged cleverly. I'm still a fan of that, is it Gold Rush? gum, which amazingly enough, you can still get today -- nugget-shaped chunks of bubble gum with a "gold" colored coating & sold in little muslin drawstring bags. At least, I was a fan the last time I had some, which has been awhile. They're probably gone and "improved" it all to hell and made it horrible and revolting, like most modern gum. Chum Gum, which was packaged in flat five-stick packs just like chewing gum used to be packaged, was the best bubble gum on earth but alas, they don't make it anymore, anywhere, ever. But that was back in the olde dayes when they used to put actual real chicle into gum, so you and your teeth knew by god that you were chewing on some real damn rubber and not this doughy polyester shit they pass off as gum today. I'd rather chew on my socks.

I might have to try this stuff and see if it cuts the mustard. Self-appointed gum experts will not be fooled!
