With so many choices and flavors it can be hard to choose, but start with picking your favorite fruit flavor and chewing the gum until you have nice big wad to blow a bubble. Find a coin operated gum ball machine and put the quarter in, twist the handle and see what mystery flavor of gum ball appears.
The world market for chewing gum is around 560,000 tons a year.
The history of bubble gum goes back about 92 years when in 1928, Walter Diemer, who was at that time an accountant for the Fleer Chewing Gum Company in Philadelphia, created a gum called "Blibber Blubber", and it was found to be less sticky and more stretchy than normal chewing gum. This gum became so popular and was eventually named by the president of Fleer as Dubble Bubble. The gums popularity was not only for its taste but more for the texture and how a person could manipulate the form in their mouth and create a bubble by inflating it out of the mouth. In 1996, Susan Montgomery Williams holds the Guinness World Record for largest bubblegum bubble ever blown, measuring a record 26 inches in diameter. Dubble Bubble remains one of the most popular trick or treat candies given out during halloween each year.
