It came in a pinkish wrapper and the gum was pink and had a distinct, excellent flavor. I'm not sure if it came out in the 70's but it was one of my faves - I can still find it (rarely).

You can still find Teaberry gum sometimes, I like it, but it did taste an awful lot like Pepto Bismo!

My great-uncle would go to the grocery store and would always bring me back a pack of Teaberry Gum! It was kind of a game, though! At my great-aunt's house, I had a little cardboard box attached to the end of the kitchen counter near the back door. When I came down to her house I would run to my little box and check it for "goodies". I always knew when my great-uncle had gone to the store! Those were the days!!!!

Yes this was a rare treat, hard to find these days. Still yummy and brings back good memories.

I love TeaBerry Gum. When we were first married, my husband would pick me up a pack as a surprise, as it was hard to find. Think it is more readily available now than it was 25 years ago.

Very available online...just Google nostalgic candy or Teaberry. This is one of the few gums that is still made with sugar (all the Wrigley flavors now have sorbitol) so it is great for those of us that are allergic to all those substitutes

They still have the gum on the market. it is made by the company named Clark(R), sold in a pink - color pack, and tasted like teaberry (wintergreen). You can watch the commercials for the gum at I remember when they used to sell this gum in snack machines in the early 70s at the service stations that had Pit Stops and restaurants.

I still see this occasionally now, and the candystore or drugstore by my grandparents house in bolivar, pa had it, along with Black Jack and Beechnut, which were also kind of obscure gums. I liked Teaberry best of the three.

A product of the D.L. Clark Company since 1901, Teaberry Gum was merely a local favorite in the Pittsburgh area for sixty-some years. Then, innovation set in. By 1964, Teaberry Gum went national. In 1967, The famed trumpet player/bandleader Herb Alpert was hired to provide background music in a series of TV commercials. This campaign helped some, but Teaberry was Clark's only signature gum, up against the giants (Wrigley, Adams, Beech Nut). One of these commercials aired on "Batman" (3/29/67, ABC). Teaberry is still made (in Mexico) and sold today.
