You're confusing me... :-?
I exchanged my shares from the liquid to the aerosol product.
Dribbling no longer pays the premium.

Always prefer dribbling rather than splashing it everywhere. Could just be a sign of old age though.

How true! The days of the aerosol are long gone. I've tried shaking it for 2 mins but I think the jet needs cleaning out. :shock:

In April 1927 Harry Lauder a great chewing gum fan (the Prince Of Wales at the time was also a fan) was on a tour of America and Canada with a Major Hugh A Green. During this short time they purchased a $10,000 interest in the Goudey gum company and sat on the board of directors. Demand was high, one shipment contained over 3 million sticks of gum.
Two factories, the Canadian Goudey plant, and one in Boston, were also purchased during this visit on behalf of a UK/Canadian syndicate.
The Empire/British Chewing sweets was the UK off spring I guess.
The Goudey Gum Co has a vague history with confusion arising over its USA and Canadian plants.

(I'm a gum card collector and this piece has great historical interest with the links between USA and UK).

Hope this helps a little.
Thanks for the info gummy. I managed to get hold of some original Oh Boy gum wrappers from Canada also.

Major Hugh Aitchison Green being, of course, the father of BBC child wonder Hugh 'Hughie's Gang' Green, who later on moved to television as a famously insincere game show host.
