When I ask if you remember Bazooka gum, I mean do you remember the whole experience of it? Do you remember going to the stationary store as a young kid and buying it? It was the one thing you could always afford. I think it cost 3 cents a piece (it was a big deal when it went up to 5 cents). It was an amount every kid could afford. Do you remember opening the gum and smelling it… then looking at the little comic that came wrapped around it. It was a whole little event that all kids experienced in the 1970’s.
If you say Bazooka, I can vividly recall being in the specific stationary store that I walked to with my friends when I was about 6 or 7 years old. It’s a great memory… yet it’s a little sad knowing that parents no longer allow their grade schoolers to walk to the stationary store with their friends.
When I mentioned it to my mother, she couldn’t remember allowing me to go. We just went and it was no big deal. It was a different time.
