In today’s edition we’re taking a trip to the digital Candy Store and tipping our hat to Hansel and Gretel. Welcome and bienvenue to: Bubblegum Kids!
Chewy Delicious Fun!
Spearmint, Cherry, Blueberry…who doesn’t like a fresh stick of Bubble Gum? But let’s be real—what do any of us really know about this sticky candy store staple’s history? Well, this sweet stretchy treat adored by many was first created all the way back in 1928 by an accountant for the Fleer Chewing Gum Company, Walter Deimer . Now my man Walter was way ahead of his time—I guess you could say he was the Satoshi Nakamoto of the world of candied treats. So before creating Bubble Gum, he committed his time towards marketing a new kind of gum, ‘Dubble Bubble,’ where he taught salesmen how to blow bubbles as a selling point for the gum. Genius, right!?
So Walter here decided to give numbers and marketing a break so that he could experiment with some new gum recipes. Little did he know that he would soon become the inventor of Bubble Gum! While experimenting, Walter created a recipe based on a formula for a chewing gum called ‘Blibber Blubber,’ which was found to be less sticky than regular chewing gum and way easier to stretch. An so Bubble Gum was born! Today this universally enjoyed delight comes in a range of flavors and can be found in just about every country you can think of!
Fun Fact: Bubble Gum was originally a dingy gray color. Eventually red dye was added to the recipe, thus imbuing it with its signature pink hue!
New Bubblegum Kids on the Block
Gum morning, gumjour and gumgiorno MSQ friends! What’s popping? I hope you don’t feel too hungry after that introduction! Today I’m excited to present a new project that’s recently entered the NFT space, Bubblegum Kids . These Kids are part of a collection of 10,000 randomly generated NFTs on the Ethereum Blockchain. Each Bubblegum Kid is created from a variety of traits including outfits, bubblegum color, eyes, accessories, headgear and so on. The project’s core team is full of passionate, hard-working people in the NFT space, and the delightfully sweet art was created by the one and only KingODawg .
Now that you know the basics, let’s take a peak at some of these fantastic NFTS:
That Bubble Gum’s gonna get burnt if a dragon is chewing it…maybe that’s why it’s brown?
Some say his glasses broke from the sheer force of the Bubble Gum popping too explosively
I believe, whatever doesn’t kill you, simply makes you…stranger !
Believe it or not, news on these literally dropped a few hours before this article was due to be published! Aren’t they absolutely adorable!? Bubblegum Puppies will be airdropped to all Bubblegum Kids holders in the not-too-distant future. Don’t you love it when you get rewards for loyalty and participation? However, before the airdrop takes place, some further steps need to be taken first, and according to what I’ve seen and heard, the establishment of Bubblegum Labs needs to occur before the airdrop happens. I have a feeling it’s not too far away though. Exciting stuff!
The Road to Bubblegum Land
I have to say that, when I first saw the Roadmap for Bubblegum Kids, I was excited before I even started reading it! I mean, just look at it…so colorful and vibrant! Haha, I’m already sold!
So if you take a closer look, the Roadmap includes several items and milestones including merchandise, a comic book, a community wallet and even the creation of a Bubblegum Kids Metaverse! Supremely sweet! You can view the full technicolor Roadmap below 👇 or you can view it directly on Bubblegum Kids’ website
It’s so enticing it almost looks edible!
Over on The Bubblegum Kids’ Twitter , you’ll see they’ve been posting teasers and sneak peeks of their upcoming exclusive merchandise. Now that’s neat!
In the future, there are plans to create a Governance Token so that, as Bubblegum Kids grows, these tokens can be developed and dropped to holders who then decide on the future of the project via voting and similar methods. In this way, the community will have a greater say in how the project develops over time.
