This cardboard box has a print of a woman wearing an exotic headdress on the lid surrounded by the words "Adams'/ Chewing Gum / Tutti Frutti/ 150 Pieces", with tiny games in two corners that teach the midwestern card game "Euchre". The side reads "Adams' Assorted Tutti Frutti Chewing Gum/ Wrapped in Tin Foil." The bottom label offers a "Handsome Picture Card " included in the box and a premium, announces a collectible coupon that can be redeemed for gifts, and explains the effects of the chewing gum: "It is unequaled for cure of a cold..., an excellent expectorant. As an aid to digestion and a relief to dyspepsia..."
