As a child, every summer or two my family made the drive from Virginia to rural New York to visit my great-aunt and uncle who owned a small farmhouse in the country. The 19th-century farmhouse still didn't have electricity, and we'd spend the days fishing at the nearby lake, or roaming the surrounding woods. Frequently, we drove to the small nearby town of Walton to swim in the pool and play in the park.

Once, while swinging in the park, I fell out of the swing and cut my knee. My mother went into the drugstore across the street, and returned with some bandages. After she had finished cleaning and bandaging my knee, she brushed away my tears and showed me what else she had found in the drugstore: a pack of Black Jack Chewing Gum. I was only four or five at the time, but I remember popping that piece of Black Jack gum into my mouth. It was so delicious! I stopped crying and went back to playing.

Every year after that when we returned to the farm, I always bought a pack or two of Black Jack chewing gum in that same drugstore and enjoyed it back at the farm while fishing, walking in the woods, or reading scary stories at night by gaslight on the farmhouse front porch. Now, whenever I see Black Jack, I always buy a couple packs. It brings back fond memories of my great-aunt and uncle, and those family vacations to the farm. ~ Brian from Virginia

Black Taffy & the old fashion Gums
  I sent these: Black Jack Taffy, Black Jack, Clover, Beemans, & Teaberry Gum to my brother & his wife. They really enjoyed them. It was like being young again.

Black Jack from the past
  I bought these for an 50th Wedding Anniversary party I was having for my parents. Everyone loved these along with all the candy from the 20’s thru the 60’s that I ordered. They brought back lots of memories and tasted just as great as they remembered! These were one of the favorites of the party! Everyone was very excited to see how these were used as center piece runners for decor. They were very yummy and fun to eat/chew and play with at the party.

another use
  When ever I see Black Jack gum I can remember that my Dad used Black Jack Gum to quit smoking. He told all of his friends about it and they used Black Jack to quit too. I know folks that are using it now. It's a whole lot cheaper than the commercial remedies to quit with. thank you ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
