Clove Gum

Thomas Adams began manufacturing chicle based gum in 1869. His comapny began adding flavors, creating Black Jack, Beemans and in the early 1930's, Clove. This picture looks like it's from the early 30's, and was very probably one of the ways, Adams Gum marketed their new flavor.

  1. In 1943 my brother and I found a box with two of these costumes in a vacant lot in Flushing, Queens, NY. We used them as Halloween costumes but I don't remember what ever happened to them.
