On top of the world! (Nov, 1934)

On top of the world!

CLIMB A BUILDING! Walk through air! Conquer space! Anything seems possible, nothing beyond reason, when digestion is good, when irritating little pangs aren’t ragging your nerves.

Beeman’s is a delightful and pleasant way to help keep digestion in order. For Beeman’s is first of all a delicious chewing gum with a different flavor — cool and refreshing — kept fresh always by the unique new Triple Guard Pack.

Chew Beeman’s for its savory goodness, its fragrant freshness. Buy a package today.

    I don’t know if Beemans is still around but when I was a kid it was my favorite chewing gum. It really had a unique flavor of its own. It never made me want to climb buildings, though.

    Note that if this “pepsin gum” actually contained any digestion-enhancing pepsin enzyme, it would need to be stored at at least ?20°C to prevent the enzyme from breaking down.

    I’m sure Rick remembers the thrill of reaching between the dry-ice bricks to extract each delicious flesh-destroying pellet… 🙂

    (Alt-med hucksters still commonly sell “dietary supplements” that’re supposed to contain digestive enzymes of one kind or another. Why it is that these supplements do not digest themselves into puddles on the health-food-store shelves is never explained.)

    rick: Beeman’s is still around.

    Hi Daniel. All I remember about it is that it tasted great to me as a kid. And thanks, Firebrand. I haven’t had a stick of chewing gum for decades but I’ll keep an eye out for Beeman’s in the local stores now that I know it’s still around. I hope it still tastes the same if I manage to locate some.

    rick: Yeah, you probably won’t find it in local stores. Either order it using the link that I provided or I’ve found it at the Cost Plus World Market Stores.

    (That “?20°C” in my comment was, of course, meant to be MINUS 20°C. Typical storage temperatures for pepsin are actually often a lot lower.)

    Not so good, actually.

    Brrr! It must be -40 outside!
    Farenheit or Centigrade?

    Some of the candy stores in malls that specialize in ‘non’ chocolate candies carry Beemans & BlackJack
