Bubblegum dispensers with the clear domes so you can see the bubblegum inside

Many earthlings absolutely adore those cool little red machines you get outside '50s shopping malls that dispence hollow bubblegum balls for a very reasonable old 5 p (ie a shilling coin!)or some similar outdated currency unit. Now, these machines were installed decades ago and the gum inside is usually original meaning that the balls are a bit faded on one side and look a rather odd. BUT DON'T BE PUT OFF!!! This is no bad thing, as the flavour is (almost definitely) improved and the texture is much softer and smoother! Extensive research seems to show that this positive aging phenomenon also affects 'super sour' balls and cinnamon flavoured 'eat 'em and weep' balls! An excellent way to dispose of those old predecimalization Earth coins !
