Today, we celebrate one of American's favorite goodies of all time.
Happy National Chewing Gum Day!
After National Coffee Day, today we celebrate chewing gum's day. Do you like chewing gum? Because we do!
Some of the most popular brands of all time are Dubble Bubble, Fruit Stripe, Juicy Fruit, and Big League Chew.
“National Chewing Gum Day is our favorite day of the year, reminding us that chewing gum is for so much more than just fresh breath—it’s for focus, it’s for fun, and for many, it takes us on a trip down memory lane when we reach for those beloved brands we’ve grown up enjoying,” Alyona Fedorchenko, Global Vice President of Gum & Mints at Mars Wrigley said to USA Today.
The first chewing gum by Juicy Fruit was created by Mars Wrigley, and in 1928 Walter Diemer created the bubble gum of Dubble Bubble. Fruit Stripe gum was created by James Parker in the 1960s.
Big League Chew is still on the market, and in the last year has sold millions of gums around the world.
“After 40 years, Big League Chew is still America’s most beloved bubblegum," Brian Heiser, VP of Sales & Marketing at Ford Gum and Machine Co said to USA TODAY. "The brand is seeing a resurgence because parents who loved the gum as kids are now sharing the joy with their kids."
