Background

For many, the taste or even just the smell of bubblegum takes them straight back to their school days and hours spent trying to blow the biggest bubble without getting into a sticky mess. The fruity flavour and delicious sweetness are instantly recognisable despite different formulas being used by various manufacturers all around the world. The flavour of bubblegum is so popular that it has been used in products from hand soap to car air fresheners and even gin, so bubblegum syrup is the perfect way to add a little touch of nostalgia to whatever you fancy.

 

Bubblegums family tree

The use of chewing gum is a prime example of how different civilisations can develop the same habits, despite being completely separate from one another. There is evidence to suggest that Neolithic humans were chewing a gum made from birch bark tar up to 6,000 years ago. This tar may well have had antiseptic properties, meaning that early man was not only satisfying his urge to chew, but enjoying the health benefits that the birch bark offered them.

 

Gum chewing has been traced back to the early days of the Mayans and Aztecs who used chicle, a gum which is produced naturally by trees, as the basis for a glue-like substance that they used to stick items and objects together as well as chewing. The Ancient Greeks also indulged their desire to chew with a substance made from the resin of the mastic, which had antiseptic properties similar to the birch bark used centuries earlier. 

 

Chewing gum is also a part of Chinese, American, and Eskimo history with early chewers using a plate of sugar to dip their gum in for sweetness before flavouring the gum itself became popular. In the 1860s, a pharmacist called John Colgan developed a method of flavouring the gum itself, but it wasnt until 1928 that Walter Diemer, an accountant working for the Fleer Chewing Gum Company, hit on the formula for a stretchier product which eventually became bubble gum. 

 

The success of bubble gum, popular both for its flavour and its unique consistency, was named Dubble Bubble and became a flagship product of the company. One of the things that got so many customers hooked on this new type of gum was the bright pink colour that distinguished bubble gum from the dull grey of chewing gum. This was another happy accident which came about because it was the only food dye available when Diemer decided to try and brighten up the colour of his new gum. 

 

The flavour of childhood

The taste that we associate with bubblegum has been identified by experts as a combination of cherry and banana which was designed specifically to appeal to children. The bubblegum business has become so significant that extensive taste tests have been conducted which have shown that children rejected complex flavours in favour of strawberry and blue raspberry flavours which make them want to carry on chewing. 

So powerful is the love of bubblegum amongst children that McDonalds once created a strain of bubblegum-flavoured broccoli in an attempt to encourage their younger diners to eat more vegetables. Their experiment was successful in as much as they managed to replicate the flavour of bubblegum in broccoli form, but the taste was described as too confusing for kids who were not tempted to eat their greens despite the effort that had gone into making them taste appealing. However, simply adding a shot of Monin bubblegum syrup to a whipped cream dispenser produces a sweetly fragrant whipped cream that will give a variety of drinks and deserts a nostalgic flavour.

Its not just the flavour of bubblegum that is instantly recognisable: theres something about the bright pink of a fresh piece of gum that has contributed to its lasting popularity. Thats why bubblegum syrup retains this important characteristic of the original gum the combination of the smell, the taste and that almost indescribable flavour is something truly magical. 

 

Bubblegum a favourite with kids of all ages

The one thing that everyone can agree on is that the fruity combination that we all recognise as bubblegum flavour appeals to adults as much as it does to children. Most of us probably arent spending as much time trying to blow the perfect bubble as we did as kids, but that doesnt mean that our enthusiasm for the flavour of our favourite gum has diminished even if our tastes have changed slightly. 

For those who want a slightly more sophisticated way to enjoy the sweet flavour of bubblegum, an indulgent milkshake is the perfect way to get some of that sweet bubblegum flavour into your life.
