Bubble gum goes back thousands of years. Scientists found a 9,000-year- old wad of chewing gum in Sweden. 100,000 tons of bubble gum is chewed every year all around the world. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest bubble ever blown measured 23-inches in diameter. By the 1940s, bubble gum had become so popular it was included in the ration kits given to U.S. soldiers. The average American chews an estimated 300 sticks of gum every year. Kids in North America spend approximately half a billion dollars yearly on bubble gum.
