Hubba Bubba Soda
Novelty Beverage (1987)
This bubble gum flavored soda began as a test market item in Chicago before it was launched nationwide. I stumbled across it one time in my life, but once was plenty. It was either 1990 or 1991. I was living in a small town in Northeast Pennsylvania called Nuremberg
at the time, and Hubba Bubba was one of the sodas in a vending machine outside of Bott's Market. It tasted exactly like what you would expect it to taste like - carbonated pink bubble gum. I never saw it again, and I'm not sad about that.
