How was Double Bubble invented?
Walter Diemer worked at a company called "Fleer Chewing Gum Company," in Philadelphia. Walter was twenty years old when he invented Double Bubble. When Diemer had some free time, he would try different recipe's for for gum. Double Bubble was more of a discovery because he accidentally made it. He made a batch that was less sticky than normal gum, but it stretched more easily, and he called it Double Bubble. Walter never patented Double Bubble.
