Sweet Jaspers' Guide to Anglo Bubbly: Fun, Facts & Where to Find It!

Here at Sweet Jaspers, we're all about stocking classic treats that bring back happy memories. And what could be more nostalgic than the iconic pink bubblegum, Anglo Bubbly?


A Pre-War Arrival (1932)

Anglo Bubbly first burst onto the scene in 1932, courtesy of the British confectionery company Barratt. Packaged in its instantly recognisable yellow, pink, and blue wrapper, it promised a delightful pear flavour and, most importantly, the ability to "Blow bigger bubbles!"

The Rise of a Penny Sweet (1960s-1980s)

The following decades saw Anglo Bubbly rise to true stardom. During the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, it became a fixture of childhood. Widely available in sweet shops, it was a popular "penny sweet," a single piece sold for a penny. Kids would flock to pick-and-mix sections, eagerly adding the chunky pink discs to their sugary selections.

The Allure of Anglo Bubbly

Sure, there are plenty of bubblegum options out there. But what made Anglo Bubbly so special? Here at Sweet Jaspers, we think it's a combination of factors:

  • Natural Ingredients: Anglo Bubbly boasted using natural colours and flavours, appealing to parents and kids alike.
  • The Perfect Bubble Gum: The texture was ideal for blowing impressive bubbles, a timeless activity for children of all ages (and maybe even some grown-ups!).
  • A Sweet Escape: In a simpler time, Anglo Bubbly offered a small, affordable indulgence, a delightful escape into a world of bubble-blowing fun.
