I'm not so sure if you have come to know of this bubble gum called "Cry Baby". It was so sour it could make you cry. One could buy it at 1 peso from your friendly across-or-outside-the-school vendor. I think it was way back 1994. Well, just wanna check if Im not the only one who knows about it.

And oh, pintoora wasn't the sour one. It was the VERY staining one. *wink* Do you still see them in groceries?

Hi, gelay, haha, so you tried it? Wait, you said recently. So you mean, it's still sold in your place? I haven't seen it here anymore so I thought of it now as only a thing of the past. We never really liked it because of the taste. I too don't go so much for sour food. But it was the fun of it that had us go crazy over the gum. We enjoyed it so much back then.

Hi there. Yes, I remember "Cry Baby". That and "Pintura" were the craze back when I was in grade school. And yes, I still kind of remember the taste. It was quite addictive, though I never really did cry while eating it. I have a high tolerance for sour food. I wonder what happened to that brand of candy. If they're still selling it now, I haven't really noticed. Are they?

I am familiar with that bubble gum brand, I use to bring them to school with me so that I can pop one in my mouth (secretly of course) when I am feeling so sleepy. hehehe. At least, I am finding ways not to sleep in class. I think they still sell those in the local grocery stores.
