Retro Planets Retro Gum


You may or may not remember,  but I recently reviewed Retro Planets Betty Boop Clock.  This time I will be reviewing some of their Retro Gum!  This review is extra special to me because it takes me back to my youth.  It also brings back fond memories of my late grandmother.  I always remember her having a pack of Clove or Beemans Gum for me.  I never thought that I would find it again, so when I did, I was super excited!
Retro Planet sent me 3 packs of their old-fashioned gum to review.  I was sent a pack each of Clove, Beemans and Teaberry Chewing Gum.  The first one I am going to tell you about is Clove Gum, because it is my overall favorite!  Clove Gum is flavored with clove spice and has a very distinctive taste.  It is by far the most unique flavored gum that I have ever tried!  It has also been on the market since 1914.  It is one of the oldest continuously sold chewing gums on the market today.

Today,  Clove gum is only manufactured every three years or so and is produced in large batches.  Since it is only produced ever so often, it can be very difficult to find.  Mainly this type of gum can only be found on certain online stores or specialty stores. Part of the enjoyment of the gum is the fond memories that it brings back.  It also has a very familiar scent to it that is sure not to be forgotten.   Clove Gum can be purchased on Retro Planet for only $1.19, this is for a pack that contains 5 sticks each.  

The next gum I got to try out was a pack of their Beemans Gum.  This is actually manufactured by the same company as Clove Gum and Black JackBeemans Gum is produced and manufactured by Cadbury Adams and has been around since the late 19th century.   It was invented by a physician named Dr. Edward E Beeman.  Beemans Gum has a light spearmint taste to it, with a hint of peppermint flavor.  Just like Clove Gum,  Beemans Gum definitely takes me down memory alley.  I can remember waking up in the morning with Beemans Gum in my hair and having to get it cut out!  At one time, Beemans Gum was thought to aid in digestion,  because it contained  Pepsin Powder and Chicle.

The third pack of chewing gum that they sent me to review is  Teaberry, this pack contains 15 pieces of gum.  This classic gum dates back to the 19oo's,   and is currently a product of the Clark Gum Company.  Each piece of Teaberry Gum is pink in color,  individually wrapped in white paper and wrapped again in a pink Teaberry printed paper.  The flavor  tastes like a combination of mint and cinnamon.  It has a smooth, sweet and refreshing taste to it. This is a definite throw back to the old days.

Retro Planet also sells Black Jack gum which is manufactured by the same company as Beemans Gum and Clove Gum. Black Jack gum tastes just like black liquorish,  so beware if you are not a fan of black liquorish.  Retro Planet also offers Fruit Stripe Gum, which I use to love, when I was younger.  Besides Gum, Retro Planet also sells numerous other retro products  at great prices!  Visit Retro Planet on their Website , follow them on their Twitter page or join them on their Facebook page.   

*Disclaimer-  Retro Planet sent me products to possibly review.  In no way did this alter my opinion of their products.  All of my opinions are one hundred percent honest and true.*
