Dubble Bubble Gum
Dubble Bubble Gum History
Dubble Bubble is a brand of chewing gum that was first introduced in the United States in 1928. The gum is known for its distinctive pink color and its classic bubble gum flavor, which is a blend of vanilla and fruity flavors.
The Dubble Bubble brand was created by Walter Diemer, an accountant for the Fleer Chewing Gum Company. Diemer was experimenting with different gum recipes when he stumbled upon a formula that was stretchier and more flexible than other gums on the market. He called the new gum "Dubble Bubble" and it quickly became a hit with consumers.
During World War II, Dubble Bubble became even more popular, as it was included in soldiers' rations as a morale-boosting treat. In the years that followed, the brand continued to grow and expand, with new flavors and formulations being introduced on a regular basis.
Today, Dubble Bubble is one of the most popular bubble gum brands in the world, and it is sold in more than 50 countries around the globe. In addition to its classic pink bubble gum, the brand now offers a wide range of flavors and varieties, including sugar-free and sour flavors.
The brand is also known for its iconic packaging, which features a cartoon image of a boy blowing a bubble with the slogan "BLOWING BUBBLES SINCE 1928" written underneath. This image has become synonymous with the Dubble Bubble brand and is instantly recognizable to millions of consumers around the world.

Dubble Bubble Gum Memories
I was about 6 or 7 years old and my older sister and I were riding in our Grandfather's car on the way home from the store. He had bought us some Double Bubble Gum and as we were going home he said if we both give him a piece of our gum he would blow the "world's LARGEST bubble"!! So he chewed for a few minutes and then he proceeded to blow the biggest bubble I had seen in my life!!! Of course the best part was when it POPPED all over his face!! Now mind you- he's driving a car!!! I don't think to this day I have ever laughed harder!! ~ Becky from California
