Fun Facts   back to top
Chew on these fun facts about bubblegum. They’re simply delicious!
  • Mayans enjoyed chewing chicle, a natural gum that came from the latex of the Sapodilla tree and later became the main ingredient in chewing gum.
  • On December 28, 1869, the first patent for chewing gum went to William Finley Semple, a dentist from Mount Vernon, OH.
  • In 1888, Tutti-Frutti became the first gum sold in a vending machine. The machines were located in a New York City subway station.
  • The first bubble gum cards were issued in the 1930s with pictures ranging from war heroes to Wild West figures to professional athletes.
  • Why is bubble gum pink? The color of the first successful bubble gum was pink because it was the only color the inventor had left. The color “stuck” and bubble gum is still predominantly pink.
  • The largest bubble ever blown was 23 inches in diameter.
    (Guinness Book of World Records, 1998)
