For the love of cloves...

I used to smoke cloves regularly, but -- having generally sworn off smoking -- only occasionally touch lips to clove when I am out on the town.

Fortunately, there's Clove Gum, the second oldest chewing gum still produced. Clove Gum's heyday was during and immediately following the prohibition era, where it was given out in bars to cover up the smell of liquor.

Unfortunately, it is hard to find, as they only make a run of it every 3-4 years or so. Once the batch is sold out, you're stuck with quite a wait on your hands.

Probably the cheapest place to get it is at MCT Wholesale, who sells it to the public for around 56 cents a pack (around 10 cents a stick) if you buy it by the box. It's in their catalog under "Nostalgia Clove Gum".

Get it now or wait another three years.
