He took five-pound batch to a small philadelphia grocery store where it sold out in one afternoon for penny a piece.Diemer continued to refine his recipe through december. Then the fleer company took over production, wrapped the new gum in yellow wrapper and called it Double Bubble. Dubble bubble wasn't the first bubble gum made, but it was the first one that was actually successful. Diemer died of congestive heart failure in 19998 at a hospital in Laster. He was 93.
