In addition to the original flavor, Super Bubble also comes in apple, grape, and watermelon flavors. The recipe for Super Bubble bubble gum is actually the recipe for a much older brand, known as Bub's Daddy, originating with the now Bub's Daddy bubble gum company.
Super Bubble was developed by the Thomas Weiner Company shortly after World War II in the 1940s. The five-cent product was a huge success, but in the face of increased competition, the company brought out a one-cent version in 1948.
Over the years, the brand has changed hands many times. General Mills acquired Super Bubble in 1969. The gum line was later sold to Leaf and was acquired by Hershey in the 1996 acquisition of Leaf. Farley's & Sathers Candy Company bought it from Hershey's a few years ago. In 2012, Farley & Sathers merged with Ferrara Pan to become Ferrara Candy Company who continues to produce the gum today.
