One Of The Biggest Bubblegum Balloon That You Will Ever See


Bubblegum is a type of elastic chewing gum, designed to be blown out of the mouth as a bubble.

In 1928, Walter Diemer, an accountant for the Fleer Chewing Gum Company in Philadelphia, was experimenting with new gum recipes. One recipe was found to be less sticky than regular chewing gum, and stretched more easily. This gum became highly successful and was eventually named by the president of Fleer as Dubble Bubble. Original bubble gum was pink because that was the only dye Diemer had on hand at the time.

To test his new recipe, Diemer took samples of the new gum over to a local store and it sold out in a single day. To help sell the new Dubble Bubble gum, Diemer himself taught salespeople how to blow bubbles so that they in turn could teach potential customers. Dubble Bubble remained the only bubble gum on the market until Bazooka hit the market after World War II.

Bubblegum is available in many different colors and flavors. A “bubblegum flavor” is the taste of the plain[clarification needed] gum, and it is made from synthetic chemicals, such as ethyl methylphenylglycidate, isoamyl acetate, fruit extracts and others, the true ingredients being kept a mystery to customers. When blended, the chemicals and extracts fuse together to make a sweet, palatable flavor.

Like vanilla, coconut, peppermint and almond extracts, a bubble gum flavor oil can be purchased.
