Black Jack is an aniseed-flavored chewing gum originally made by the American Chicle Company. In 1869, exiled former Mexican president & general Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna (famous for losing the Texas War of Independence) was living in New Jersey. He brought a ton of Mexican chicle with him, in hopes of selling it to raise funds to help him return to power in his own country. He persuaded Thomas Adams of New York to buy it. Adams boiled a small batch of chicle to create a chewing gum.
