Fruit Stripe Land has no affiliation with Candy Land, though they may share a border

January 20, 2013


Here’s another mid-80s excuse to destroy a comic, to go right alongside Oreo mazes and Striped Chips Ahoy! flip books. Fruit Stripe Gum (stripes again — coincidence?) wasn’t one of my preferred youthful cuds, so I can’t personally comment on the quality of the advertised merchandise. Love the “Fruit Stripe Gum means Fruit Stripe Fun” sell point, though. And here we just thought it meant stained teeth, early cavities and rapidly evaporating taste.

The Fruit Stripes zebra mascot is named Yipes, by the by. Did you know that? I didn’t. File that away in the things not to bring up on a first date.
