The best Bubble Yum flavors are credited as the first-ever soft bubble gum. Introduced in 1975 by LifeSavers and The Hershey Company, Bubble Yum was marketed as softer and more chewable than any other bubble gum on the market. Terrifying rumors began to spread that Bubble Yum was so chewable because its main ingredient was spider eggs. That. Is. Horrifying. LifeSaver's dispelled the rumors in a New York Times editorial in hopes of restoring the public's faith in their product. Spider eggs were never found in any packs of Bubble Yum, and the product quickly surpassed LifeSavers in sales in the early 1980s.
