Grape Bubble Yum
If you wanted to blow the biggest bubble out of all your friends, you no doubt popped a piece of Bubble Yum gum into your mouth, and the grape flavor was especially a classic. That sweet smell of sugar and artificial flavor came through just after a few chews, and although you may not have been allowed to have it on the schoolyard, grape Bubble Yum was a staple at birthday parties, play dates, and when you were forced to watch your brother’s soccer games. And it turns out, all that candy was better for you than you thought.
Even if your lips weren’t chapped, there was nothing more satisfying than lathering on a layer of Lip Smackers for a fruity pucker. Whether you were a fan of Watermelon or opted for something a little more funky like Dr. Pepper, that waxy, fragrant lip balm conjures up images of sleepovers where you’d be playing Pretty Pretty Princess or showing off your latest Beanie Baby. (Here’s why you probably have chapped lips.)
