Beemans gum from Cadbury-Adams is America's original chewing gum. The candy maker who produces this old-fashioned gum has brought it back from the past. Their flavors really last and taste just like they did when you were a kid. Beemans gum was invented in 1898 to ease heartburn, due to the digestive aid, pepsin it originally contained. They are sold in boxes of twenty-five stick packs. Total number of pieces is 100 sticks of gum.
