pink bubble gum flavour?

Oh, I’m a bit scared! 'S my first post. Deep breath!

How did it come to pass that pink gum tastes like pink gum? Its a bit minty, and the taste varies slightly, but does anyone have any thoughts about its origins or evolution?
Cheers, f

I tried to find a piece or reference the wrapper.

I think it just basic sugar and acid added for tartness. (second question)

Oh, and frookah–welcome to the boards! (This is the first time I’ve gotten to do that.)
