Bubble gum has been around for decades. Introduced to the world in 1928, the popularity of gum has "blown up" around the world, as evidenced by the number of flavors, sizes, and shapes available today. From mint gum to wasabi gum, people love the long-lasting satisfaction of this chewy confection.
One of the reasons gum is so popular is because it pulls double duty as a way to satisfy a sugar craving while also helping to temporarily keep hunger away. Individuals who are trying to stop smoking find chewing gum to be a helpful distraction, while those who feel nervous or anxious may find the cooling sensation of mint gum to be just what the doctor ordered to stay calm and collected.
Gum is enjoyed by people of all ages, from youngsters who crave the sugary goodness of Hubba Bubba varieties, to adults who take a more serious approach with the sugar-free options from Wrigley's and Extra. Stop by your neighborhood Safeway store today, or shop online, to find a huge selection of gum.
