Spearmint Gum History
The wrapper design for Wrigley's Spearmint, first introduced in 1893, has remained remarkably unchanged over the decades.Throughout much of the brand's existence, its wrapper has also featured a triple sprig of mint, also a well-known Wrigley design element.
The wrapper has always incorporated the distinctive single-headed spear emblazoned with the word SPEARMINT, the first Wrigley gum to adopt the now-famous arrow motif. The arrow motif is so powerful that in Asia, Wrigley's Spearmint, Doublemint and Juicy Fruit are called White Arrow, Green Arrow and Yellow Arrow, respectively.
