Fun Facts about Dubble Bubble Gum

Box of Dubble Bubble Gum |

With so many options available in 2019, it is crazy to think there was a time when bubble gum did not exist at all. Dubble Bubble is the world’s first bubble gum. Since then the options have more than dubbled (pun intended) but we will always have a place in our heart for this original.

When was it invented?

Walter E. Diemer invented this chewy treat in 1928 after retiring as an accountant from the Fleer Company. The recipe was discovered by accident because Mr. Diemer enjoyed experimenting. He stumbled onto this unique recipe that was less sticky and easier to chew.

Why is it pink?

Dubble Bubble has been pink since the beginning. The reason for this is because the factory only had pink food coloring available. This ended up setting the trend for most of the bubble gums that appeared in the wake of this original.

How big was the largest Dubble Bubble Gum bubble?

This occurred on April 24, 2004, at Double Springs High School in Winston County, Alabama. He did all this without using his hands! This information can all be found in the Guinness Book of World Records.
