Scrambled Lemonade, Anyone?

December 1983

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi #3

Well, I guess gum counts as candy too, so this works well for a post-Halloween post! Here we have the addition of pink lemonade to the Bubble Yum lineup! I remember liking that flavor – how about you? I was curious as to whether or not they were still making this flavor, so I looked up the current Bubble Yum site, and apparently the only kind they still make is original flavor sugarless – how disappointing!

Well, since this is another anagram game, I was hoping to have some fun like I did with Fig Newtons, but unfortunately none of these words can be rearranged into something else (at least, not with using all the letters) – sorry to disappoint you!

Gum! Buy It!

April 1980

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century #7

More gum! Kids love gum, so let’s give ’em plenty of gum ads! Here we have Bubble Yum, which, compared to Hubba Bubba, is a pretty straightforward and stripped-down ad campaign.

New flavor! Plus all the old ones too! Bubbles! Buy it!

I think my favorite part of this as is “5 great flavors and SUGARLESS.” So… you’re saying that the sugarless tastes less than great, then?

Not Just Gum, Entertainment Too!

April 1980

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century #7

So here we have “gumfighting do’s and don’ts” from Hubba Bubba, where they attempt to take bubble blowing, normally a mindless, idle activity, and turn it into something fun and exciting – competitive, even! I certainly give them credit for this novel approach!

They make a really big deal about how Hubba Bubba won’t stick to your face – I guess it never really occurred to me that something like that would be a big selling point, but given the choice, I supposed I’d go with the less messy gum too.
