Smurfs Gum: How Smurfy!

Candy companies must have taken Gargamel’s idea of eating Smurfs a little too literally when they released their versions “Smurf Bubble Gum”. Thankfully, you aren’t actually chewing Smurfs. Imagine how traumatizing that would be for fans of the show! The gum was produced back during the Smurfs’ peak of popularity in the early 1980′s. I know the Smurfs are still extremely popular in Europe and I wonder if Smurf gum is still being made today.

There are 6 different types of gum in the gallery over at Bluebuddies, a Smurf fanpage. Topps made a gum assortment of blue and white lumpy pieces called “Smurf Rocks” as well as two different sets of Smurf trading cards that each came with a stick of Smurf gum. The “Smurf Rocks” came in 4 wrapper styles featuring the Smurf characters and holding about 1.3 ounces of gum. The other types are a Bazooka-eque gum coming from Turkey that included stickers, a metal pail full of Smurf gum from Holland (what a haul!) and a 5 inch tall Smurf gumball machine with gum from the US.

I can see Smurfette now, swooning at the thought that someone is eating gum with her likeness on the package. Unfortunately, there’s no mention of what any of the gum tasted like. I hope it tastes like Smurfberries!

    If you want traumatizing, the German company Haribo has this: http://www.otto-office.com/de/mediadata/item/art_600/art_49406.jpg
    According to the Haribo website these are their most popular “Stückartikel” (meaning that you can buy them as single pieces in shops & kiosks etc. They’re quite sweet, extremely sticky and I loved them when I was a kid.
