Brew a pot of bubblegum tea and wow your little ones with a delicious herb and fruit combo of caramel, strawberry and lemon flavors.

Who wants bubblegum? That’s a question to which you’ll never hear a negative response. Unless you happen to live in Singapore where chewing gum of all sorts has been banned since 1992. (Potential customers in Singapore, we’re lobbying right now to have the ban removed!) Bubblegum, the most awesome member of the gum family was invented in Philadelphia in 1928 by the Fleer Company. Depending on whom you believe, the gum was either developed by a chemist named Gilbert Mustin Sr. or his accountant, Walter Diemer. Ok, do you know any accountants? We’re going with the chemist.

The flavour combination put together by Walter Diem…er…Gilbert Mustin Sr., combined the following: wintergreen, vanilla and a variety of cinnamon called cassia. In the same mythological way ordinary metal is turned into gold by alchemy, the combination created the sugary sweet traditional bubblegum flavor we all grew up on. Two patents were filed, one called “Method of Making Chewing Gum Sandwiches” and the other “Chewing Gum and Method of Making the Same”. History was born!

Chewing gum sandwich? Why not? But we’re guessing that back in 1928, upper management at the Fleer Co. would never have guessed that their product would become the base of an herbal tea. Now it has. As the cornerstone of our line of kid’s teas, bubblegum herb and fruit is one drink your kids won’t turn up their noses at. Brew a pot of bubblegum tea and wow your little ones with a delicious herb and fruit combo of caramel, strawberry and lemon flavors. Who wants gum? I do! I do!

(NOTE: Remove bubblegum before brewing and save it as treat afterward.)
