Dubble Bubble

This flower in the Abkhazi Garden reminds me of candy - particularly some kind of juicy pink confection like those lovely slabs of Dubble Bubble I used to enjoy when I was at the bubble gum chewing age. Dubble Bubble was the best (at two cents a chunk) and it was a multimedia experience since one could read the adventures of Pud, a micro-comic that was wrapped around each piece of gum, while enjoying that juicy sugary chew.

Wonderful flowers. Indeed they look like bubble gum. I have never heard of a micro-comic surrounding a gum, investigative.
Maybe it will come to Germany. We are always a bit later with things like that.

These are pretty remarkable flowers. I see why bubble gum would come to mind.

Ah yes, Dubble Bubble was my gum of choice as a kid, and the Pud comix added to the enjoyment. The Wiki history article was really interesting, and good to know it is still in production.
As an adult who continues to enjoy bubble gum, I can share that my preference now is Hubba Bubba with high bubble-blowing capacity.
