Get actual Gimmy Gum this holiday season! In a collectible nostalgic box!

In the Jimmy Gimmy books, Gimmy Gum gets its chewiness from chicle (CHEE-klay), the rubbery sap from trees in Central America. That was the base for the gum your ancestors chewed. But natural chicle hasn’t been widely used for over sixty years. Nearly all modern gum is made with synthetic base. Gimmy Gum is your chance to sample a hearty old-fashioned chew!
