Help me, please?

Sometime in the later 80s(probably around '87 or so), I used to get this gum from a local store. It came in a shiny paper wrapper similar to the candy bar wrappers of the time. There were about six or eight gumballs inside, alternating in flavors of orange and grape. The gumballs had a rough texture on the outside, and inside there were wonderfully sour candy crystals. I used to love that gum.

The problem is, I can't remember what it was called. I've searched and Googled and asked and looked, but I can't even find so much as a reference to the fact that it existed. I know the chances of my being able to have some again are slim to none, but if anyone at least knows the name or has ANY information on them, I'd be eternally grateful.

I live in central Michigan, in case this was a regional thing.

Thanks in advance for any information!

Now I’m curious. Sounds like Razzles, but I know it is not what you are looking for. Well the researcher in me had to try. The closes I came up with were there four. But none of them fit all of your description. Good luck.

Heh, yeah. Close, but none of them are it. I just wish I could remember the stupid name.

Anyhow, thanks for trying!

Great thought, but alas, no. I despair of ever finding reference that these existed. Perhaps I imagined them...

Closer, but still not quite them. ;.;

I was looking for information about Pizza Puffs, and found this site. Maybe it might help you find the name of the gumballs if you haven’t already.

gun with crystals
I'm so glad you posted this because no one seems to know what I'm talking about and I cannot find them online either! I hope someone can figure out this mystery!
