The soda whose taste was somehow even worse than its marketing.
Bubble gum says everything you need, right in its name. It's gum. You chew it. You make bubbles. It loses flavor. You spit it out, and it waits for 5,000 years before we're all gone, and the only thing walking this planet are huge Big League Chew monsters and skyscrapers made of Amazon boxes. What isn't in the name is Swallowing Gum. Unless you were Hubba Bubba soda in 1987. In that case, then you are all about rewriting the rules of common decency and the social contracts we have all signed when we came into this world.
This was a soda not just based on gum, but on that standard, pink gum flavor that nobody outside of 1955 even actually likes. Hubba Bubba was meant to give you a fizzy, consumable option when you just could not get enough from simply chewing that shit. If you were a real gum fan, you had to suck the stuff back and suck it back quick. Or, at least, that's probably what they were going for before it hit shelves, and they soon realized that people were probably going to stick with chewing their chewing gum. It had worked pretty well up until this point. Hubba Bubba didn't end up lasting long, in what is probably the most fitting possible tribute for something based on gum you could hope for.
