Chewing gum circa the early 70's?

After reading the post below about Libbyland frozen TV dinners and the prompt response it received, it occurred to me that Chowhound would be the perfect place to ask about another lost food (using the word very loosely) from childhood. I don't know why I didn't think to post here about this before. Anyway, am I insane or does anybody else remember a brand of chewing gum from the late 60's/early 70's that came in four flavors: SWEET, HOT, SOUR & COOL. Each flavor was packaged separately and the graphics were very groovy, Victorian hippie style, as I dimly recall. The SWEET package was, naturally, hot pink and tasted like perfume smells. To my then little girl palate, it was the most perfect, delicious taste imaginable. Now of course, it sounds revolting. The HOT package was red and pretty spicy, cinnamon-y. SOUR was apple-green color and COOL was blue. I've tried several of those old-time candy and food websites, but none have any idea what I'm talking about. It's been haunting me for years. Please, somebody, tell me they remember it too...
