Idea High

I love it when I submit a site to Boing Boing and Cory or Mark pick up on it. Today, they did just that, helping spread word about an awesome online archive of gum wrappers. I've been on a big food history kick in recent days, making a Squidoo lens about soda pop and delighting in trivia tidbits like the fact that Big Red gum was first offered in... 1975.

Nice! I brought the site to BB's attention here.

He has tons of great stuff

I never knew Big Red launched in 1975... but it now makes sense to me. I always thought it odd that Big Red's wrapper had a much more modern design than Juicy Fruit, Doublemint or Spearmint gums. Now it makes sense -- as does the reason why Big Red was the last to get a makeover...
