Black Jack Gum: A Longtime Favorite
Thomas Adams, Sr. introduced Black Jack gum, the first manufactured, flavored chewing gum, in 1870.
One 1928 magazine advertisement states, “After smoking, have a stick of Black Jack! The licorice in this quality gum soothes the throat and freshens the mouth. The world’s most popular licorice flavored gum.”
Adam’s Black Jack gum has been a favorite of gum lovers for decades. In fact, Black Jack gum is one of the oldest chewing gums in America. Inventor Thomas Adams used his patented gum-making machine to manufacture Black Jack Gum. By adding licorice flavor to his previously plain tasting chewing gum, Adams created and instant hit with Black Jack Gum. Black Jack Gum sold well right up to the 1970’s. Since then it has been available only on a limited basis every few years.
Sporadically, and on a schedule we have yet to understand, small batches of the Adams line are produced. It is common for these limited runs to sell out quickly.
Two From One. That familiar split reminds me of my grandfather who always broke a stick of gum in half to share, just like the picture.
