When you are passing by a row of 25 cent machines you can almost always guarantee that Cadbury Adams’ Chiclets chewing gum will be among the candies that lie within them.

When the decision of what candy to spend your sole quarter on proves difficult, don’t think twice before putting it in the little slot for the Chiclets. With Chiclets you get the flavor variety of any other candy with the long lasting duration of any gum.

These classic, flavor filled gum squares were the first candy-coated chewing gum, first introduced in peppermint flavor in 1906. Frank H. Fleer took the idea of the candy coated Jordan almond and applied it to chewing gum and the Chiclets have thrived in every generation since the early 1900s.

Chiclets chewing gum is known all around the world, but is especially popular in the Middle East. Here in the United States Chiclets can be found in their original peppermint packaging or in various other flavor packed colors including orange, red, yellow, blue, green, and pink.

As great as each individual flavor tastes, taking a small handful of multiple flavors always proves enjoyable even if you don’t think cinnamon, banana, and orange blend well together.

Chiclets are the perfect gum because you can easily monitor the size of the gum you will be chewing. You can dump a handful into your mouth and have a double-bubble-like mouthful or gum or you can just chew one square to get the smell of lunch off of your breath before your meeting or job interview. Whatever the reason, Chiclets chewing gum won’t disappoint.

The Swedish Fish, as the name implies originated in Sweden by the Malaco candy company.

In 1958 the Malaco company began exporting some of their candy goods to North America starting with licorices. In the late 60s into the early 70s Malaco started exporting Swedish fish and Swedish berries (the same candy shaped as berries and, sadly, now discontinued) which were altered slightly to appeal to the North American market.

The Swedish fish are now made by the Cadbury Adams Company in Canada and are distributed all over the US. The winegum Swedish fish candies are a popular concession candy and are loved by people of all ages world-wide, especially in Sweden.

Winegum candies are very popular in Sweden are made in many different shapes including flowers, cars, coins, and boats. In Sweden the candy is called “Pastellfiskar” which literally means “pale colored fishes.” The original red fish is of an almost indistinguishable flavor that in my opinion seems to be a mix between cherry and strawberry.

Swedish fish come in different sizes (as there are all different sized fish in the sea) and in different flavors (as does most candy). You can find yellow lemon, green lime, orange orange, and purple grape Swedish fish flavors if the original read doesn’t tingle your taste buds. Forget paying for overpriced Swedish fish at the movie theatre, prepare ahead of time and order your Pastellfiskars from
