1893: JUICY FRUIT. Yet another product to come out of the Columbian Exposition, William Wrigley Jr. brought his new flavor to the fair. The company is still in Chicago today.

CANDY~The first item bought by scanning its UPC code was a ten-pack of Wrigley's Juicy Fruit gum, purchased at an Ohio supermarket. It's now on display at the Smithsonian.

I bought these everyday in school during eighties

Wrigleys PK gum and long sticks in white packet - myself and my friend used to cycle over the border to Crossmaglen to 'smuggle' these back in the day.
