Is there anything more satisfying than blowing a giant bubble with bubble gum? It might not be something we usually think twice about, but bubble gum is definitely something worth celebrating! Celebrate by getting some bubble gum and chewing as much as you want. Share some with your friends to spread the joy!
Remember those days of blowing bubbles with bubble gum or at least trying to? Those days of spending the day with friends handing out gum to chew together? Those were the great days, and what comes greater is that those days can come back to you. Bubble Gum Day is a day dedicated to giving our appreciation for the candy that has been around for years on end.
History of Bubble Gum
If on the fateful day of 1928 in Pennsylvania, PA that bubblegum was not made, perhaps our whole world would have changed. Thank God for the man named Walter E Diemer, if it wasn't for his idea to make the candy a lot of lives would have been vastly different. Bubble gum was made specifically to be chewed on and used to blow bubbles. This created the substance that was elastic and was less sticky. Thus the bubblegum was born, however, Walter E Diemer didn't even receive any money for his invention!
Over time, bubble gum has been an integral part in media and our lives, from childhood to on-screen movies. From the one company that helped produce the bubblegum recipe, it had become a part of society in which other companies began to make their own recipes of bubblegum. As time went on, the candy went from a national candy to an international candy consumed all around the world. Without Walter E Diemer's recipe, we'd be at a loss for blowing bubbles with bubble gum. In fact, 560,000 tons of bubble gum is sold within a year! That's a whole lot of bubble gum!
