Another nastalgic death from our childhood

By jennyd on January 11, 2024

I mean the flavor didn’t last but the memories did! I used to love this gum as a kid and now it will be gone or way too expensive to relive.

Fruit Stripe Gum, known for its bold colors and zebra mascot, is being discontinued after 50 years on the market. The gum’s manufacturer, Ferrara Candy, confirmed the discontinuation, citing factors such as consumer preferences and purchasing patterns. Fruit Stripe Gum was invented in the late 1960s and featured five flavors and temporary tattoos on the wrappers.

While it may still be available in some stores, the gum will no longer be produced. People are already stocking up and selling on Ebay.
