Chiclets are a brand of candy-coated chewing gum made by Cadbury Adams. The colors of chiclets are: yellow, green, orange, red, white, purple, pink and blue. The product's name is derived from Nahuatl word tziktli, in Spanish chicle, the substance from which chewing gum was traditionally made and still is that way. The original flavor was peppermint but many flavors have been added and discontinued over the decades since the introduction. Assorted fruit flavor is still available in Algeria, Colombia, Argentina, Egypt, Canada, India, Lebanon, Mexico, Venezuela, Syria, United Arab Emirates, Dominican Republic, United Kingdom and parts of the Americas like Guatemala but not anymore in most places.
Promotional 2 pieces packs were distributed at gas stations during 20th century sixties until eighties.
