Bubble Yum - This gum was so popular that kids in my Jr. High were selling individual pieces for 5 cents each. If I remember correctly, the package cost 10 or 15 cents, so they were making a pretty profit!

Bubble Yum bubble When I was 6 years old, I won a bubble blowing contest at my Sunday school.I got 3 cases of Bubble Yum as my prize :D. Needless to say, I was VERY popular that summer.

I chose the chewing gum because "scout" jean louise loved it. Also scout and Jem found some in the tree.
