1993′s Colorific Mouth Wash Bubble Gum!

Here’s a quick post about a funky bubble gum from nearly twenty years ago.

What I have to share today is a trade ad for an unusual product from the early 1990′s; Mouth Wash Bubble Gum.

I don’t know too much about Mouth Wash Bubble Gum aside from what’s indicated on this ad.  Produced in 1993 by the Swell division of the Philadelphia Chewing Gum company, it appears to have been a gum designed to turn your tongue different colors.  The mascot has an earring and a baseball cap on backwards — gotta love the wild 1990′s.

And here it is:

Swell – Philadelphia Chewing Gum – Mouth Wash Bubble Gum – trade ad – June 1993

If anyone out there remembers this one, and possibly how long it was around, let me know.

And that’s it.   See you next time!
