Bugg chewing gum brings back memories. When I was a child I used to be at my parents summer cabin with my cousins. This specific summer I am thinking of contains a cousin and Bugg.
The year is about 1978 and we are at the summer house. As most children we got some money for saturday to spend on what we wanted. My cousin got 50 krona, that was a lot of money back then, and he went shopping Bugg chewing gum that was the hit back then.
Bugg got a sweet and nice taste and all kids loved them. For 50 krona you got about a month normal use, a BIG bag of BUGG, and he bought Bugg for the whole 50 krona.
As kids do we went on doing what kids do, fishing, boating, playing, and having a blast. The bag of gums got a little emptier along as the day past, but we did not think as much of it. And he did not share, so he ate all of it himself. Night came and my cousins had a sleep over at my place. It was a small cabin and the childrens room was only 2 bunk beds, 4 beds in all, and a window. Talking and listening to the radio before sleep.
On the top left was my younger cousin’s spot, under his bed was my sister sleeping, and on the right top side was I and under my bed my older cousin.
After a while we all got tired and fell a sleep to the talk and the radio. Outside one could hear the wind in the trees and the lake.
Early in the morning we all woke up to a loud noise! My sister was screaming and my older cousing as well. I openend my eyes and spotted Bugg all over their beds and the floor.
My younger cousin had eaten all the Bugg and not spit it out after, and his stomach did not like all that rubber.
50 bucks of Bugg in 1978, that is a lot of Bugg.
I will not say more…
