    Yeah, I remember them but haven't seen any for years.
    Loved them when I was a kid.

    I had a candy pennywhistle once, but I don't think I ever got a wax harmonica. You may want to try contacting some of the vintage candy e-shops and see if they know anyone who makes them. I looked through a few and did not see any in inventory.

    Here's a pic of the 'Wowee' label from the product-

    The Wowee Whistle was the name, though it was really more like a harmonica. Haven't been made in a long time, not since the 70's at least, but it gets a few mentions online here and there.

    I can remember the flavour of the chewy wax, sorta Beeman's gum flavouring.

    There is a rumour that Concord Confections (current makers of Dubble Bubble and the Wack-O-Wax Lips) is going to bring the Wowee Whistle back to our Halloween bags, and I hope it's true. Just to hold one again... ah!

    Another link for you, a March of '04 press release-kinda page about the aforementioned Concord Confections Wowee Whistle re-launch.

    http://www.coinoptoday.com/newsflash...5-06-2004.html

    Hope the URL works.
    Anyway it looks like they've been offering them for a few years now! Good for us! Can someone find a link to a real retailer! I'd buy them right now to have for this Halloween!

    Icemanfred. Looking forward to hearing what's up. Never had them as a kid but we had tones of chewy things out of wax in all sorts of undefinable flavors. I think they turned all our wax treats into scented candles. LOL
    The cold winter air lets me know I'm still alive. I feel it as I breath in and see it as it leaves me. It's the point in-between I'm not sure about.....

    I remember those. In fact, I still think I'm digesting one from 1967.
