Quick – can you name the TEN MOST POPULAR CHEWING GUM FLAVORS?
According to Euromonitor, the following are the TOP TEN GUM FLAVORS IN THE US:
- Mixed Fruit
- Bubble Gum
Seriously – how did cinnamon and bubble gum fall so far down the list? Who doesn’t want to kiss a little longer, make it last a little longer, longer with Big Red? Again, seriously?
Maybe it’s all explained when we look at who the TOP CHEWING GUM BRANDS IN THE US are. Number one by a long shot is Trident Gum (the gum 4 out of 5 dentists recommend for their patients that chew gum).
Let’s take a look:
- Ice Breakers
- Juicy Fruit
- Dubble Bubble
- Hubba Bubba
- Big Red
- Bubble Tape
- Bubble Yum
- Big Leage Chew
Wow, how the mighty Bazooka have fallen.
But seeing all the major bubble gum brands at the bottom of the list does lend to the hypothosis that today’s parents are trying very hard to ween their children off of chewing gum in general, as bubble gum is tradionally a child’s chew rather than something adults enjoy. Remember, gum chewing is a trend that Web Watch has covered before…
Maybe it’s the extreme sugar needed for good bubble gum, while today’s trend is to go sugar-free gum instead.
Do you agree with the above? What’s your Go-To gum when you have to have something to chew on?
