Description
About 1979 it was the first soft bubble gum, before we just had the hard crappy stuff like Bazooka or Double Bubble. It was such a craze that in Atlanta you couldn't find it. It was going for a piece back then in my Junior High. OOHHH, but it was worth it.

Yep Bubble Yum was the best bubble gum bar none. I hated the knock off's Like Hubba Bubba. It was rubbery and sucked.

You can still buy all of the Bubble Yum flaors (even cotton candy) at online candy distributors.

Nabisco first introduced Bubble Yum late 1977. I distinctly remember the radio commercial with the jingle going so fast, it's hard to recall word-for-word. Part of it went: Bubble Bubble Yum is so much yum, yum, yum, so much gum, gum, gum in Bubble Yum! Top 40 radio stations usually played the ad at least once an hour. Particularly, WLS, the Big 89 in Chicago. All day, with Larry Lujack, Tommy Edwards, Bob Sirott and John Records Landecker. They all played it. The gum itself was loaded with flavor, which lasted about 20 minutes. A Bubble Yum spot usually came up right before or after Landecker conducted his "Boogie Check" call-in segments at 7 and 9 PM (CT).
