Today's Review: Hubba Bubba Dr. Pepper Bubble Gum

Hubba Bubba is a staple name in my childhood. Their strawberry bubblegum is awesome, and while I didn't learn to blow bubbles until quite late into my early years, I'm always fond of the chewy memories. I also had a big thing for Dr. Pepper in my teenage years too, so finding this packet of Dr. Pepper Hubba Bubba was like the ultimate fusion of my childhood favourites.

This gum is like any other Hubba Bubba gum, with its standard five sizeable blocks. There's enough in one piece to blow a bubble, which shows impeccable design. As for the taste, well, it tastes like Dr. Pepper, so I'd say it's a success. All is not perfect though. The flavour is undoubtedly Dr. Pepper, but having a Dr. Pepper taste in your mouth for an extended period of time is not exactly as nice as say, the classic strawberry. The flavour ends up being a little bitty, and somewhat artificial, but that is after a fair amount of chewing. As it is, it's a nice combination of products, that's pretty tasty. It's just not as nice as other flavour.

My rating: 4/5
