Lots of good things and bad things have been said about bubblegum over the last eighty two years of bubblegum history.
But one of the most bizarre came when kids started saying some bubblegum had spider eggs (or is it spider legs) in it.

It was a shame though, as apparently over $100,000 was spent to battle such rumors.
