With so much popularity, there exists a unique celebration day on the calendar for those who love bubble gum. Celebrate the day by chewing gum to make the day fulfilled.
“Chewing gum actually lowers your cortisol levels, the hormone responsible for stress. But chewing gum doesn’t just reduce stress, it also makes you more alert and improves your performance in memory-oriented tasks. It does so by increasing the blood flow to your brain and alerting your senses.” – Travis Bradberry
History of Bubble Gum Day
Bubble Gum Day has been celebrated since 2006. Ruth Spiro, a children’s book author, founded this celebration Day. The creator of this Day has created this idea to generate charitable contributions and allow the kids to chew gum in the school. Those who donate 50 cents or more get to chew gum and raise funds. It encourages children to know about the importance of humankind. Sooner, Day has become a successful celebration as charity is not limited under any circumstances.
The original bubble gum was created in 1928 by Walter Diemer. It was pink in color, which was the only dye that Diemer had the most on hand at the time. Synthetic gum-based materials are used in modern chewing gum, as the natural rubber chicle needs to pass several purity and cleanliness tests. Children prefer strawberry and blue raspberry flavors as other complex flavors bring them the feel to swallow them. There are various health benefits associated with chewing gum. Gum is found to be a great stress reliever and is also good for oral health.
