Unless this is meant as one of those british-american arguments. It is sweet and has no nutritional value, taken for enjoyment ( or habit, nerves, trying to quit smoking etc ;) ) not for nourishment. So makes sense, where else would you place it.

I do have to admit that hubbabbubba or bubalicous or another name was bazooka I think, feel more like candy than sportlife or stimirol, or something*, those aren't usua;;y in bright colors and taste like mint. I guess the ones you could call bubblegum feel more candy, but well neither are vegetables, or grain or fruit or meat etc

* other brands áre available ;)
