Today is Bubble Gum Day.
I know that because my Garbage Pail Kids page-a-day calendar told me so.
To kick off the morning, I thought I'd have some original flavour Bubble Yum bubble gum my friend from the USA gave me at Christmas.
Bubble Yum is a name I have seen before. A long time ago, when I was a child, they would sell packets of this bubble gum in shops near me. It's a brand that I hadn't seen - on UK shelves - for many, many years.
Before writing this post, I had a look to see if Bubble Yum is still sold in regular shops in the UK. It doesn't look like.
My research also led me to see that the gum brand was sold by Nabisco to Hershey in the early 2000s.
As for this Bubble Yum I have with me - it tastes like a regular bubble gum. If you read THIS POST from last year, you'll know it's a flavour I like very much.
