In 1480, King Louis XI of France forbade craftsmen to fill tennis balls with chalk, sand, sawdust, or earth, instead mandating that they were to be made of good leather and stuffed with wool.
Today, most tennis balls are made of a hollow rubber core that is covered in a wool or nylon shell. But in our opinion, the very best kind is actually made of gum!
These darling gumball confections look like miniature versions of the real thing -- you’ll want to touch them to check whether they’re actually covered in felt! Spoiler alert: They aren’t. They’re chewy and delicious gumballs. To make things even better, these realistic little spheres of joy have the tasty flavor of lime! And rather than being filled with any of King Louis’s banned substances, they’re filled with a tongue-tingling sour powder instead. We don’t think the French monarch would have opposed something as tasty as that! So serve up these sour gumballs to the tennis lover in your life… they’re sure to score points every time.
