Fruit Stripe gum is being discontinued. This is a bummer as I always have liked Fruit Stripe gum. People would joke the flavor did not last long at all, but I enjoyed chewing it as I am a big fan of gums. Bubblegums are my favorite as I can blow amazingly large bubbles--this is not a brag, it is just a fact--but I try to avoid making my bubbles too big lest they pop and get all over my glasses and face. Even if Fruit Stripe gum was more of a chewing gum I had a fondness for it and especially enjoyed the cherry flavor.
Fruit Stripe gum has been around for more than half a century, but the company behind it, Ferrara Candy, has decided to, "Sunset," the gum, which is almost as cute of phrasing as claiming a pet went to live at a farm upstate. Find yourself some Fruit Stripe gum at stores while you still can because soon it will be gone and only available on eBay for marked-up prices--yes, seriously. It was a good gum, though. I'll miss it along with other discontinued products like the beloved Kraft Fresh Take or mostly forgotten Mr. Green. Goodbye, Fruit Stripe gum. You were always enjoyable for the admittedly short-lived moments of flavor you provided.
