Regarding the question: What is the flavor of bubblegum?

Original chewing gum was originally part of a tree and was an all natural substance as far as I remember. Having tried a primal piece of this gum tasted woody…earthy and very bland. I wouldn’t consider it bubble gum though, it was barely chewable let alone malleable enough to blow a bubble. Im sure the question was directed specifically at mass produced artificial gum made now days so yep.

Another column on the history of chewing gum. Unfortunately, it does not address the nature of “bubblegum flavor”.
