Wow these certainly bring back fond memories. When I was little my dad worked out of town a lot so I don't really remember him being there until I was around 5 years old. He hurt his back and had to take some time off to heal. Since I was five I was getting ready to start school, dad told mom that he would take me to Wal-Mart to buy my school stuff. After we were done at Wal-Mart and I had all my school supplies we started home, but dad made a detour.
He told me he had to stop at the cigarette store, he made me stay in the car, but when he came back he had a surprise for me, three bubble gum cigars, one of each flavor. After we got home I spent all afternoon chewing gum, I didn't really like the banana, but I like the fruit and loved the mint. Every time he went to that store after that he bought me two of the mint ones up until my parents got divorced when I was 6.
I moved in with mom and we moved to the city, she still bought bubble gum cigars for me, but the store closed down when I was 8 and we looked everywhere for them but never found anymore. I was shocked to see them on your site, I was very happy to see them. ~ Lucas from Tennessee
