Adam’s Chiclets were sold in most stores throughout the 1990s, and it was one of the most favored Guatemalan products. However, a Saturday Evening Post recently ran their Halloween-timed pieces about “candies you could not buy anymore.”

This included The Adam’s Chiclets, which were named after their main ingredient, chicle. Chiclets gum occurs naturally in some specific South American trees, and they are square-shaped chewing gums that have become an iconic candy.

As explained by Chewing Gum Facts, the founder, Thomas Adams, who named them Adams Chiclets gum, is considered one of the founding fathers in the gum industry.

This particular post lamented that the Adams Chiclets gum, in fact, disappeared in 2016, and this left the world with “only sad imitations of the chiclets flavors.”

The company that specializes in its manufacture was also discontinued, and in its place, the brand offers a different brand – Chiclets chews.

They do look identical, but they are a sad imitation of the original.

So, were they discontinued?

That is not clear yet, because it is still unclear why people think they were discontinued in 2016. A Wall Street Journal Piece of 2019 stated that the chewing gum industry has been making references to the “Discontinued Chiclets gum.”

However, after poking around in some corners of the internet and especially eBay, there were various iterations of a new Chiclets gum with the brand name “Adams.”

This is one of the reasons why you would want to pause and think that the Adams Chiclets gum company is a direct descendent of some of the various other chiclet flavors made by Thomas Adams.

So, regardless of the Post, it appears that the Old Time Candy Company hasn’t discontinued the Chiclets gum, as was the case reported by a New Jersey Law Blog.

The particular case in question was a 2017 attempt to prove that the company had abandoned the brand before its trademark wore off.

Conclusion

Reasons aside, however, a specific platform with Guatemalan products included a whole page showcasing that the Chiclets gums have been made in California for over fifty years, and they are now being produced in Mexico.

Additionally, Kmart and Walmart have not helped matters much by advertising that the Adam's Chiclets gum was out of stock on their site, but limited stocks were still offered on Amazon.

This is probably the reason why people have been asking whether the Chiclets gums had been discontinued.
