Anyone remember the ads for this when it first came out (around 1977), showing an animated tooth biting into a piece and the goo squirting out in 6 different directions... How disappointed we all were when it just kinda oozed out. Oh well, we still had Pop Rocks!

LOL at "cum gum"! For those of us younger kids whose minds were not yet corrupted, this was a fun and unique gum that made me feel a little older, since it was marketed to young adults.

My dad worked for Warner Lambert which owned Adams candies and gums. So before Freshen Up gum hit the market we got to try it. He gave a piece to my brother and I and we were so suprised by the liquid center. That was 1975 and I let only my best friends have a piece. I find it around today and still buy it. Maybe because it reminds me of a simpler time.
