Outlawed candy – Big League Chew and Candy Cigarettes

Categories: Candy,Gum,Hard Candy

Did your mom let you eat Big League Chew or Candy Cigarettes? My mom didn’t. Big League Chew is delicious bubble gum that came in original and grape flavors (now it also comes in Cotton Candy, Sour Apple, Sour Cherry, Strawberry and Watermelon flavors). It came in what looked like a tobacco chew pack and the gum was all stringy like shredded tobacco. When you chewed it, I remember it having this grainy feel, probably because of all the sugar you had to chew out of it to be able to chew it like bubble gum. You’d see how much you could stuff in your mouth or put it between your bottom gum and lip to pretend you were really chewing tobacco. Hmmm, I guess that’s why Mom didn’t like it. Point taken.

Big League Chew

Bubble gum cigarettes were the most fun because they had a powder in the middle that when you blew on it, it looked like smoke coming out of the end. So now you really thought you looked like you were smoking. Again, probably the reason Mom didn’t like it. I had to sneak away and buy this confection from the local candy store (Bob Clark’s Pharmacy).

Bubble Gum Cigarettes

Candy cigarettes were just a white stick of sugary substance with a little pink at the end that was supposed to look like the lit end of the cigarette. Personally, I didn’t think they really tasted any good.

Candy Cigarettes

You can still buy candy and bubble gum cigarettes at lots of sites online. You can even buy a whole carton of candy cigarettes (24 packs of 10). Thank goodness you can’t get pretend-tobacco-candy cancer, right? Whether or not it’s a “gateway” candy to harder candies, I can’t really say. . .

    Let me point out, you neither smoke or chew tobacco Candy Kid. So maybe my disgust for these enticing candies and gum was valid. Who knew your greatest addiction would be candy?

    This is nuts! I can understand banning the candy cigs. I have kids and I don’t allow them to have that stuff. Big league chew, now thats a different story. I used to buy that gum as a kid going on 30 years ago. It tastes awesome, and the way it was shredded, I think it added to the enjoyment. Come on, any idiot that would pick up a bag of tabacco chew, after having Big league chew gum, has some issues. Big league chew doesn’t resemble tabacco at all. So bring it back!!!!!!
