I have as long as I can remember.
Unfortunately I think this might be something that I have passed on to my son, as he's a real bubblegum-oholic and would spend all of his allowance plus any money he's found here and there, on bubble gum.
My very favourite is Hubba Bubba, outrageous original.
I first tried Hubba Bubba when I was living in Australia, so Im guessing I must have been about 8 years old, (30 years ago now!!!!) In those days "Outrageous original" was not it's name. It was just "hubba bubba" as there was ONE flavour....AND...it was red in colour and if my memory serves me right, it was quite a bit firmer than todays pinky soft concoction. Perhaps it was because we were "hard" back then and our jaws were used to struggling with bubble gum...these days it's almost like it's "pre-chewed!!" lol.
|This is an early Hubba Bubba wrapper, almost like I remember.|
Anyway, I hadn't indulged in any Hubba Bubba goodness for a while, and the last time I had it was some ungodly flavour that Asher loved...either that strawberry or grape flavour, which was not disgusting, just not to my liking.
I gave in and added the 90cent treat to the goodies on the counter.
I drove to the bus-stop to meet my son, and popped one of the pieces of gum into my mouth,and WOWEE... the flavour ROCKED!
