Teaberry Gum

Teaberry Gum IS BACK! The venerable chewing gum was made in the early 1900s and later manufactured by David Clark – an Irish immigrant and maker of the Clark Bar. The Clark Bar started life in the rations of World War I soldiers, and was one of hundreds of candy bars, including the Zagnut Bar, that Clark created. So busy was Clark with candy bars, he sold the Teaberry gum company. This version of the Teaberry gum is not the original recipe, but who cares? It’s still enjoyed today along with other turn-of-the-century gums – CloveBlack Jack, and Beemans. Price per pack.
