Quality Sticks

Quality Sticks are chocolate tubes designed to look like real cigarettes. They are essentially chocolates formed into the shape of cigarettes. They contain a white wrapper similar to the paper that slowly burns on tobacco filled cigarettes.

They are even packaged in what looks like real cigarette boxes. Additionally, they are labeled with cigarette sounding names like Mirage, King Lion, Estate, and Tillburry.

These chocolates are made in South Africa and the U.S. candy importer, Gerrit J. Verburg Co., brings them to the market.


Quench Gum is a brand of chewing gum that is marketed as a thirst-quenching electrolyte gum. It is often associated with athletes and sporting activities.

The gum is designed to help relieve dry mouth and provide a refreshing sensation. Quench Gum contains sugar, gum base, corn syrup, citric acid, glycerin, natural flavors, soy lecithin, sodium citrate, potassium citrate, artificial sweeteners, artificial colors.

Athletes sometimes use Quench Gum as a convenient way to help feel more hydrated during physical activities without having to pause for a drink. It’s important to note that while it can help alleviate dry mouth, chewing gum is not a substitute for proper hydration with water, especially during intense physical exertion.

As with any product, it’s advisable to check the ingredients and nutritional information on the packaging, as formulations can vary between different brands and versions of gum. Flavors include fruit punch, grape, orange, and lemon.


Fleer released Quicksand gum in the 1970s. It was a powder sold in packets. When the powder hit the moisture of the mouth, it converted into bubblegum. Its kind of a cool concept that just never took off with consumers or was not marketed properly.

The candy was discontinued by the early 1980s. The snack and candy manufacturer, Leaf Brands, attempted to bring it back sometime around 2014. However, it appears this gum brand is off the market.
