News to me...

Dum dums remind me of the pediatrician's office.

Fav flav breakdown = cherry, butterscotch, cream soda/root beer, and later, blue raspberry.

Flavs that make me go EW = pineapple, watermelon, sour apple.

And "mystery" is all the flavs smooshed together, right?

WRONG!

"Dum Dums are made in about twelve different flavors; nine or ten of these flavors are classic flavors; two or three are cycled in and out. The "Mystery Flavor," present in every bag of Dum Dums, is a combination of two flavors in the bag. The combined flavors are random. This combination occurs because the production of Dum Dums is continuous--there is no stop between flavors. This practice results in the flavor combination."
