Greetings! I'm a child of the 70's who never left the 80's. The 80's are my happy place.
I love all things retro, Castle/Caskett, Mork & Mindy, Genesis/Phil Collins, Paula Abdul, classic tv, retro toys, Barry Manilow, Daryl Hall, Howard Jones, Elton John, 80's synth pop, yacht rock, 80's/90's hiphop & R&B, vinyl records, new jack swing, sneakers, John Ritter, pop art, the ocean, Jeeps, Deloreans, etc.. Would love to meet more 80s freaks, retro lovers & whoever else would like to know me. I mostly post/reblog goodies from the 70's, 80's, & early 90's.

Gatorgum - 1978:
Here’s another great piece from the big candy find — Fleer Gatorgum from 1978, a spin-off of the Gatorade drink, of course.
I remember when Gatorgum first came to my hometown. My friends and I were very curious about it and its mysterious “thirst quenching” power.
This package is still unopened. I’m almost tempted to open it and try a piece. Almost.
