4. It's Bubble Tape's cousin
Ron Ream, the chemist and VP of marketing and corporate development for Amurol Products, a division of Wrigley's, between 1979-2004, invented the technology behind both bubble gums. Today he is the owner of MyBigLeagueChew.com, a site where you can go and custom order your very own pack of Big League Chew with your name on it. Ream also recently produced a military-geared gum that is aimed to pack in enough caffeine to keep our troops going. Now that's some powerful gum!
5. There have been some experimental flavors over the years
Like Cherry Sparks, which was cherry with crushed Life Savers. But for the most part, Big League Chew sticks to the flavors it loves and knows best: Outta' Here Original (your regular bubble gum flavor and the company's most popular flavor) and grape, which owner Rob Nelson says tastes like cabernet franc. At the moment it also features watermelon and sour apple.
