Prepare the Juicer! This isn’t your grandfather’s bubblegum. In fact, this isn’t even the flavor-shifting Stride Shift. Scientists are inching closer and closer to creating a gum which offers the experience of a three-course meal, much like the gum seen in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, by using manipulated nanoparticles.
Researchers claim that time-release nanostructures within the gum might be able to recreate the famed Wonka gum by instilling each nanoparticle with a series of different flavors. Each flavor would then be broken up and released upon contact with saliva or after a certain amount of chewing.
