Fruit Stripe Gum has been discontinued

A common and disappointing fact of life is products (like all things) inevitably meet their end of life someday. The mark of a great product, are those that transcend their makers.

The chewing gum, Fruit Stripe has been around since 1960. While the gum and brand has changed parent companies several times, the original gum has largely remained the same product since it was introduced. Unfortunately, the gum is now going the way of the do-do.

The manufacturer Ferrara Candy said that they will cease the manufacturing of Fruit Stripe Gum this year. End of an era. Just looking at a photo of the gum makes me salivate. I can practically smell the fruity gum from this photo.
