The first ever commercial product to be bought with a barcode was a 10-pack of Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit gum. It was purchased at Marsh’s Supermarket in Troy, Ohio, USA, on June 26, 1974, by Clyde Dawson. It was scanned by Sharon Buchanan at 8:01 am.
The historic pack of gum and the receipt are now on display in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.
