Was it an accident?


Answer by  patti (29325)

n 1928, an accountant for the Philadelphia's Fleer Chewing Gum Company was playing around with new gum recipes. He noticed that one batch was less sticky and more stretchy when chewed. Fooling around, he blew a bubble. The idea was so successful that it sold $1.5M+ in the first year.

Walter Demier invented Bubble gum on an accident. He was an accountant at a gum factory that played with gum pieces in his spare time. He just ended up with a gum that wasn't sticky and stretched easier.
