This came out around '78 I believe. A chewing gum made by the people that made gatorade. It had about the most sweet-tart lemon lime combo I have ever experienced. It made your salivary glands kick into overdrive, and did just what it promised - to get rid of dry mouth. I loved the stuff as a kid. I wish they would bring it back.

They still make the gum. It might be called Quench gum? I bought it at Big-5 in Seattle.

I used to chew gum by the mouthful. And this was the best to do that with, though it was more expensive than other gums. And if you chewed it too long it would start to taste nasty.

The orange flavour was available here quite a bit before the lemon-lime. I loved both of them, especially when I played sports.

Fleer produced Gatorgum, 1978-81, under license from Stokely-Van Camp, makers of Gatorade (and pork & beans). Not a good seller, not liquid, nor was it refreshingly cold to do any good.
