This sweet, ringer tee features a large graphic for Zooks cherry crunchy candy bubblegum. The tee features the candy's green alien mascots holding boxes of the candy on a strange planet. It seems like the candy is falling from the sky, like meteors.
Zooks was Topp's response to the wildly popular Nerds, produced by the Willy Wonka company. The name Zooks was derived from Topp's other popular bubblegum Bazooka, and the name referred to both the candy and its alien mascots. It was sold in small, flip-top boxes just like Nerds and each box came with one flavor. Zooks also came in grape flavor, in addition to cherry. The boxes featured an offer for a mail-away t-shirt that looked very similar to this tee. Zooks had a short-lived production run however, and were only available in the mid to late 80s.
Fits like a modern unisex adult large.
