Beemans gum is back ! It will only be available for a short time. This is one of 3 chewing gums that is made by Cadbury Adams that is only produced for a limited time. Not only that, but it only comes out every 3 years or so.
Many ask why it's not available all the time. That is a question we ask ourselves. The only answer I can come up with is supply and demand. About 10 years ago the sales for this nostalgic gum dropped so it was discontinued for awhile, when they brought it back the sales soared.
I guess this is a good marketing idea for the company , with it being a limited edition the demand is huge and it sells very quickly. The consumer on the other hand isn't very happy when they can't find their favorite old time gum when ever they want it.
Beemans chewing gum as been around for over 100 years. It was actually invented by Dr. Edward E Beeman. He had many patients with stomach and digestive related illness, which he always gave them pepsin as an aid.
He invented a pepsin powder which due to a suggestion from his bookkeeper he added the powder to chicle and came out with Beemans pepsin gum. It's slogan was you can eat like a pig, the package actually had a picture of a pig on it.
Today I am sure there are some people out there that chew on the beeman's gum to help with heartburn , but I believe most chew it because they like it. This old time gum will definitely bring back some nostalgic memories.
Every time this gum becomes available we buy as much as we can get our hands on as the self life is good for approx 1 year. No matter how many cases we buy, it seems we purchase enough.
If this was one of your favorite gums you ate as a kid or even as an adult and it is a must have for you hurry and buy yours now as it is selling quickly. We have it available in either just one pack or you can get a box of 20 packs. You can chew till your jaws hurt.
Don't forget to also pick up some Black Jack Gum and Clove Gum as these two are also an old time nostalgic gum.
