Default What's the Oldest Topps Bubble Gum you have eaten:

I know I ate some that was about four years old, but I believe it contains enough preservatives to explain why I'm still here.

1991 in 2019 and it tastes awful. I’ve got some 1940s gum I’m tempted to try, but it’s nasty looking at this point.

I chewed some 1991 gum in 1991. It tasted like it was about 30 years old even then.

I chewed ten year old Topps gum once. It was just dried out and brittle. I doubt there's anything in it that will kill you.

It's not that old, but in 1980 Topps issued a set, 54 I Think, of multi sport comics, including a baseball subset. It was marketed as Topps Thirst Break Gum. The gum was not flat but a small piece, similar to Double Bubble. The comic was wrapped around the gum, with the image on the gum.

I eventually built the full set, opening several "packs" to do it. This was post 2000. The unopened gum packs and even boxes of it were easy to find. But by then the gum, which I think was originally orange, was green and very gooey.

It was hard to separate the comic from the gum and the comic needed a lot of clean up.

I offered pieces of gum to people I knew and a bounty if anyone would chew a piece and provide evidence of same. Only on taker on chewing. ( it was someone you know Anthony)

I still have a bunch of unopened pieces. No telling what color they are now

I remember eating 1982 bubble gum in the 90's. It just kind of disintegrated.
