    Description

    Lot of Four Sweet Wheat Chewing Gum Labels Circa 1906 Here are four different Sweet Wheat chewing gum labels from the early 1900s. Four flavors are represented: Spearmint, Orange, Pineapple, and Cinnamon. At this point, Autosales Gum and Chocolate Company of New York had taken over the Sweet Wheat brand from The Royal Remedy and Extract Company of Dayton, Ohio. Copy states that the gum is "Refined, Elegant and Healthful" and that it "...will be found beneficial in Dyspepsia, Heart Burn, Sour Stomach &c," then claiming that "It also beautifies the teeth and perfumes the teeth." Each label is 4.25" x 2.25" in size and mentions the Pure Food & Drugs Act, June 30, 1906. Rare.
