Clark's Teaberry Gum.
When my maternal grandmother (Mama Womack) were living, and I was just a small child, it was a great day when I would receive a note in the mail from Mama Womack. She didn't have much more than a dime to her name, but yet she was always thoughtful to include a little surprise in her letters. The surprise came in the form of Teaberry Gum. A single piece placed inside the envelope for her grandchild to find.
I saw this package the other day at a store. Even though I no longer chew gum (im not kidding), I had to buy it just to recall the smell, the taste, the sweet memory....all from a single slice of gum. That piece transported me, for just a moment to simpler times.
Like the musical poet, Jimmy Buffett sings about Juicy Fruit, the same can be said for Teaberry.
"Chew a little (Teaberry) it's good for the soul..."
Teaberry Gum. Yum.
