Some Trivia About Bazooka Bubble Gum

Who remembers the blue and red colours of Bazooka Bubble Gum?

Bazooka Bubble Gum advert: ‘Bazooka Joe’

 

According to Wikipedia:

“Bazooka bubble gum was first marketed shortly after World War II in the U.S. by the Topps Company of Brooklyn, New York. The gum was packaged in a red, white, and blue colour scheme. Beginning in 1953, Topps changed the packaging to include small comic strips with the gum, featuring the character “Bazooka Joe”. There are 75 different “Bazooka Joe” comic-strip wrappers to collect.”

The inclusion of comic strips ceased in 2012 and moved to brain-teasing puzzle wrappers for the modern market.

For our friends in the U.S and Canada. Do you remember this song and all the verses?…….

My mom gave me a nickel,
She said to buy a pickle,
But I didn’t buy a pickle,
Instead I bought bubblegum,
Bazooka-zooka,
Bubblegum,
Bazooka-zooka,
Bubblegum.
