“Where Can I buy Black Jack Gum?” – That is a question I’ve asked many times. I love the stuff myself and I haven’t found it in a physical store in over 6 years. So like everyone else who can’t find something locally, I’ve taken my ongoing hunt to the Internet.
My first purchase of Black Jack gum online was through eBay, the fall-back for any item you can’t find for sale elsewhere. I purchased a sealed box and was set. But after a while I was in need of more and so off I went again, hoping that by then SOMEONE online would be selling them other than eBay.
That’s when I discovered the Old Time Candy Company. I found them while searching on Google and discovered that while they didn’t have Black Jack in stock all the time, they did have some right then. I was happy…
I’ve posted this now because I just got a newsletter from the in the past few days that announced the arrival of a brand new batch of Black Jack gun in their inventory.
The crazy part about my obsession with Black Jack gum is that I’m neither a regular gum chewer (other than Black Jack) nor am I a fan of licorice. But there is something about chewing Black Jack gum that does it for me. Go figure…
I also am a Black Jack fanatic and cannot live without it, rarely chew anything else, probably cannot think or produce without it. I know I would not have got through grad school without it, so now when I see it, I automatically buy it all, hoping it will last me till the next run. I notice other Black Jack fanatics are doing this as well. Rarely does it. Now it’s becoming available again, so I am stocking up. And of course there is the old time candy company. Why don’t they just bring it back?
I to am a lover of Black Jack gum, and have been all my life. Once in a while, I manage to find a store that sells the gum, but not very often. The stores are usually miles and miles from where I live. The problem I have with ordering Black Jack on line is the shipping & handling charge. It is usually more than half the price of the gum. That is enough to keep me from ordering. O well, maybe someday they will stock it in grocery stores.
Black Jack gum has been discontinued 🙁
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Black Jack gum!!! Yummy!
