One Gum In Texas Is Leaving Grocery Stores

According to Food and Wine, this gum will no longer be able to be found after it was created in the 1960s. What is the food you ask? None other than Fruit Stripe Gum.

People seeking the gum before the discontinuation noticed changes in the ability to find the gum. Further investigation by Fruit Stripe gum lovers lead to the discovery that according to the company, Ferrara Candy, was slowly phasing out the candy.

However, it was recently announced the candy was officially being taken off store shelves. So, in other words, it's the end of an era. But, how about a joke to close out with a laugh?

So long Fruit Stripe Gum!
