Does anyone know where I can get sticks of gum with the individual paper wrapping? All gum used to come like it, but then they all disappeared.

I don't think that answered my question. I don't want packs of gum, well I want packs of gum with individually wrapped sticks. Packs at the dollar store are usually the same ones you'd find at Walgreen's.

Juicy Fruit and Big Red still exist. Wrigley's brand Extra comes individually foil-wrapped.

Not quite what I'm looking for. I know they still exist, I chew them every day! Anyway, I want the gum with the individual colored wrapper, the wrapper that either says Big Red or Juicy Fruit in my example above. Righ now, most gum has individual foil wrappers. The gum I want has a foil wrapper, but it has a colored sleeve on top.

Extra has paper sleeves deep in the pack, IIRC.

No, usually those are just plain white.
See, the small packs are still around, but these days, they just have white paper and foil wrapping.
I am not sure where you can find these types, but may I ask why you need to find them?

You may ask, and my answer is for, well, a magic trick.

I'll poke around, but there are sites that sell "vintage" candy and gum. You might be able to find a supply of the now rare five packs of gum with their fully printed labels.

Question: If they're so hard to find is it possible the trick needs to be modernized?
