Do you see a future in bubble gum, or candy in general? As children, candy and gum is one of our main life fulfillment’s. We constantly strive to find candy. Kids in this day and age seem to want more complex candy (bars, etc) than the simple one piece items. This many be a huge reason the in store candy vending machines are a thing of the past. How many of those have you seen in the last few years?
So what does this mean for the future of bubble gum and small candies? Well there will always be a place for it!
Gum is evolving to include healthier options (all natural), and it also is serving a purpose. Want gum for weight loss? They have it! Want gum to clean your teeth, yup! What about gum to stop nicotine cravings? Yeah that has been around for awhile. So it seems as the tastes and preferences of people change, the market changes with it.
I know we are excited to see what’s coming up in the world of Gum!
I also hope manufacturers will start including more easily burned alcohol sugars in their candy so we can reduce our general sugar intake.
