Bubble gum has been a beloved candy since its invention in 1928. That’s a lot of years of people blowing bubbles! However, Hubba Bubba chewing gum is an entirely unique phenomenon – at least for people who grew up in the ’90s. One of the brand’s most succesessful varieties of gum is their Bubble Tape roll, which was definitely the most popular snack on the playground, back in the day.

Who doesn’t love these miniature bear-shaped candies? Whether you enjoy them with a sweet-and-sour sugar coating or without, gummi bears are a super yummy candy. They’re also pretty addictive. Once you’ve had one or two, it’s pretty likely that you’re going to wind up polihing off the rest of the bag. Better grab and friend or two to share the sweetness with.

The name of this memorable ’90s candy might be a bit off putting. However, as long as you don’t actually try to bite into a jawbreaker, which is totally rock-solid, you should be okay. How does one enjoy this candy then? Well, by licking it, of course. And as every ’90s kid knows, it takes quite a few licks to get to the center. Honestly, no one really knows how many, but the satisfaction makes it all worth while.
