Re-create that tasty bubblegum flavor

For years, bubblegum has been one of the most popular flavors for beverages, ice cream, candy and other favorite treats. And with its sweet, fruity taste, it's no wonder that many people try to make the tasty flavor themselves. Luckily for them, creating that distinctive bubblegum flavor is quite simple. In just a few minutes, you, too, can learn how to make a bubblegum flavor.


Step 1

Fill up the pitcher with water. For the ingredients to dissolve completely, the water should be cold but not iced.

Step 2

Add two teaspoons of raspberry extract to the water. Stir the mixture thoroughly to properly disperse the flavoring.

Step 3

Mix in two cups of sugar to the liquid. For best results, use white refined sugar or sugar cube.

Step 4

Measure 1/3 teaspoon of baking yeast. Add it in with the other ingredients and mix.

Step 5

Place five cups of red food coloring into the mixture. Continue stirring until all of the ingredients have dissolved.


Carbonate the mixture if you're making a bubblegum-flavored beverage. To do this, place two gallons of dry ice into a large plastic container. Cover the container with an airtight seal, wait for the dry ice to evaporate (usually about two hours), chill, and drink. If you prefer, replace the sugar with artificial sweetener for a healthier bubblegum flavor.
