A fun, festive candy and chewing gum from the early 1900s. A real hit at Halloween, the lips are fun, the texture, unique, and the flavor pleasant. A great way to introduce kids to the past with some hilarity mixed in. Also try another wax candy family favorites, Nik L Nips.

A Bit of History

The Wax Lips became popular in the early 1900s, made from paraffin wax, a by-product of the petroleum industry which started in Pennsylvania. They were among roughly 150 wax products, including tops kids could spin and chew.
