Bubblegum For Eating, Not Chewing

When I was a kid, the rumor was if you swallow bubblegum it will sit in your stomach for seven years... so I didn't swallow it! And who the heck wants a belly-full of bubblegum anyway?

Apparently Texans.

"Fried Bubblegum" was named most creative food by State Fair of Texas judges during this year's annual Big Tex Choice Awards. I know... my first reaction was "WTF?...people are eating chunks of bubblegum??" Rest assured, it's just deep fried bubblegum-flavored marshmallows covered in icing and sprinkled with chiclets, which can't be quite as bad for you right?

I still don't think I would swallow it.
