I Love TV Commercials – Part 4 *Wrigley’s Doublemint Gum*

Doublemint Gum has been around for a long time, since 1914 made by the Wrigley Company. Doublemint Gum commercials are famous for using real life twins…

The original “Doublemint Twins” were Jayne and Joan Boyd of Hammond, Indiana. Other twins that appeared in Doublemint ads were Jennie and Terrie Frankel in the late 1960s; June and Patricia Mackrell through the 1970s (who had also been the Toni Twins for Toni Home Permanent, which used the slogan “Which twin has the Toni?”), Patricia and Cybil Barnstable, Denise and Dian Gallup, Cynthia and Brittany Daniel (of the TV series Sweet Valley High), Tia and Tamera Mowry (of the sitcom Sister, Sister) (Tia Mowry and Brittany Daniel were both on the comedy-drama series The Game), Heidi and Alissa Kramer, Jean and Liz Sagal (daughters of TV director Boris Sagal and sisters of Married… with Children’s Katey Sagal), (You might remember Jean and Liz from their 1984 sitcom Double Trouble). Barnstable twins and Denise and Dian Gallup (they spoofed their roles as the Doublemint Twins in cameo roles in the Mel Brooks film, Spaceballs), Natalie Garza and Nicole Garza.

Here is the DOUBLEMINT GUM jingle…

A Double pleasure’s waiting for you
A Double pleasure from Doublemint Gum.
A Double great feeling making you realize
Doublemint’s the one for you.
Double fresh, double smooth,
double delicious to chew
A Double pleasure’s waiting for you
Doublemint Gum
A Double pleasure’s waiting for you
Doublemint Gum

(and the iconic)

Double your pleasure,
double your fun
with Doublemint,
Doublemint,
Doublemint Gum.

I loved this gum from the time I was a little girl and my dad handed me a stick of it…he always had a pack in his pocket…good memories…

    Here are the Original Doublemint Gum Lyrics my twin sister Jennie and I sang:

    Double your pleasure, double your fun
    With double good, double good Doublemint gum.
    Double delicious, double smooth too.
    Doublemint’s double delightful to chew.
    So, double your pleasure, double your fun.
    Get double everything rolled into one.
    Oh, double your pleasure, double your fun
    With double good, double good Doublemint gum.
