Bubble Yum, the vanishing gum

September 23, 2011

One would think that the real trick here was making a gum whose flavor would magically disappear seconds after being placed in your mouth. Huzzah! It’s gone! Bubble Yum was like Bonkers candy in its unabashed sugarfication, but you felt obligated to chew on it for a while even after the fruity tang high-tailed it out of there. That whole gum thing. The taste evaporation effect also applied to kindred competitor Bubblicious. The orange variety of that brand, which I chomped as a kid, was great for a couple blinks of the eye. Then it would morph into a wet pencil eraser.

And don’t get me started on the spider eggs/legs rumor.
