A candy store is every kid's dreamland, isn't it? Colourful candies of different shapes and sizes instantly transport us to our childhood days. If you are a 90s kid, you would totally relate to those glass containers at grocery stores, filled with lemon candies, orange candies, cola candies and more. We recently came across one such picture on social media that evoked nostalgia. It featured 'bubblegum'! You heard us. The flavoured chewing gums, with colourful wrappers, were a total hit during the 90s. A Twitter user, identified as Apoorva Savant, took to Twitter to share pictures of chewing gums and wrote alongside, "I've been hit by a huge wave of nostalgia. OMG! Does anyone even know the actual name of this bubblegum?

A person could identify the actual name of the gum and wrote, "Fusen gum! I still love it and never miss the chance to grab a few whenever I find them somewhere." Another person mentioned, "And just like that two weeks ago, I went down the Marukawa rabbit hole to realise it was a 135-year-old company. They started making bubble gum sometime in 1948! Fusen is actually strawberry flavoured."
"There used to be Fusen and Felix," music maestro Ehsaan Noorani commented. Another person commented, "Fusen Gum it was. And it's still the same till years." A comment further read, "Haha and I always thought it was called fusion gum! Also... can be a great fusion band name!"
