What is Santa bringing you?

The kids were warned about that whole "naughty or nice" thing, but they just didn't believe it. Have a little fun at their expense and slip this box of "coal" in their stockings for a Christmas morning surprise. The sweet bubble gum will eventually erase the taste of fear from their mouths, but maybe next time they'll be more likely to listen. Made in Canada.

Comments about COAL GUM:

MY SON BELIEVES in Santa because EVERY year he requests 'coal gum'. Uncommon Goods offers me the chance to provide him with UNIQUE, hard-to-find (an therefore Santa worthy) Coal Gum so that I might help him believe a year or two longer!

    I probably wouldn't buy this again unless it cost less. It was funny to watch the reactions of the ones I gave it to though. Only the naughty ones got this, lol!

      This was a fun gag gift for my cousin who didn't want to do gifts this year. The box came a little smashed but it was packed with something heavy so I guess it couldn't be helped. Still fun

      Comments about COAL GUM:

      I ordered several of these for my grown children. They all loved them for their uniqueness, but I have had not had any comments on them as far as the gum / flavor, etc. I don't think they really cared, they just thought they were "fun."

        Comments about COAL GUM:

        Older son got a big laugh when younger one opened the present - younger one laughed back when older one got his. All in all, a great way to start the Christmas gift-opening. Gum was tasty, too...but most delightfully, turned the teeth and tongue black at first. Thankfully, the color didnt' last.

          Comments about COAL GUM:

          i bought this as a stocking stuffer for my 10 and 8 yr old, they immediately loved the packaging, but the gum was way too hard to chew. when you first chew on the gum it breaks apart with a burst of sweetness, but eventually gets too hard to chew.
