History of Gumballs
Humans have been obsessed with chewing on soft sweets since the beginning! The history of gumballs can be traced as far back as the ancient Maya civilization, where the Mayans chewed on Chicle - a sap that comes from sapodilla trees. Fast forward a few centuries, and the gumball machines are born! Created by Thomas Adams in 1871, these machines finally gave “chew” lovers a quick and cheap way to get their favorite treat on the go. We’ve come a long way since then in terms of technology, but one thing that spans generations is our love of chewing candy!

Gumball Fun Facts
The amazing thing about gumballs is that they have a rich history and a surprising amount of uses (other than being delicious). Invented in 1906 by Frank Fleer, the formula was changed in 1928 to the recipe that we know and love today. Did you know that bubble gum was originally pink because it was the only available food coloring at the factory? And it’s still the most popular color today! Studies show that chewing gum can help you focus better, prevent your eyes from watering while cutting onions, pop your ears at high altitudes, and prevent heartburn. Wow!
