Blibber-Blubber Bubble Gum

By Stephanie Shkolnik

Blibber-Blubber Bubble Gum

Only 5-10 calories in every pop, no wonder its so irresistible!

First patented in 1868 Bubble Gum, has had a long life full of popping and slapping. Blibber Blubber was the first bubble gum chew invented that was not sold.

A variety of gums on the market come in different flavors, shapes, and sizes.
Both sugar free and regular gums are available for all types of people to enjoy.
But is this low calorie sticky stuff bad for you?

Did you know you are chewing on flavored rubber or latex?

Gum is made out of  corn syrup, gum base, sugar, softening, and a  touch of flavoring and color, allowing the product to be chewy, but does not stick to the inside of your mouth because of your saliva.

Bad for your health?

Many women think popping a piece of gum in their mouth will sustain their hunger.  While it may distract you from eating, you are actually tricking your digestive system by constantly chewing and never swallowing.  There are also digestive acids in gum that are released into your stomach, which may potentially cause problems, so watch out!

Shuga Shuga...

Since you were a little girl, you probably heard that sugar is bad for your teeth and for your health.  While it may seem better to chew sugar free gum, the artificial sugars within may cause cancer (diabetics should keep an eye out for this). So be careful what kinds you chew, and how often you do!

Don't swallow your Blibber-Blubber!

If you happen to swallow your gum it will typically be excreted in the same form as when you swallowed it.  But try not to swallow it to many times, because it may cause an intestinal stone.
