How is Bubblegum Made?

All types of gum contain a gum base, sweeteners (sugar and corn syrup), and flavorings. To start, the manufacturer melts down the raw gum materials and then cleans it to rid dirt and bark. Once the gum base is melted and cleaned, sugar, corn syrup, and flavoring oils (cinnamon, pepperment, etc) get added to the base. The mixture then gets ran through powdered sugar coated rollers, making the gum form into a non sticking ribbon. Finally machines cut the gum ribbon into little strips, and then wrap the individual pieces. You can find more information here:
