Who Invented Chewing-Gum?
Have you ever wondered who invented chewing-gum?
Well a man called Adam smith was working with rubber in his factory. He had a little lump of chicle.Chicle comes from the sap of a rubbery gum tree. He decided to pop it in his mouth.He chewed it and chewed it but it still stayed
Suddenly Adam came up with a bright idea to heat it up and add a mint flavor to it. He called it chewing gum.
In 1872,he started to sell it in a small factory.He tried to get shop keepers to sell it but they refused.Since they didn't sell it, a company called Tuttie Fruity sold it in slot machines.You can now buy it at rail ways.
Thats who made chewing gum and how it was invented.
