For better or for worse, this is primarily a treat to be enjoyed by the eyes. The mouth...not so much. We bit in expecting the standard pink bubble gum show: a little brittle and chalky, super sweet quickly giving way to flavorless blob. However, the powder covering the bologna gum (the ingredients list contains corn starch and talcum powder) is oddly bitter. The gum itself is more tangy than you'd expect, but the bitterness persists long after we thought it should have dissolved into the nothing flavor of real bubble gum. To whom do you report failings in the Department of Bubble Gum?
