Homer: Oooh, the gum with the cracker center.
– Girly Edition
The Simpsons | Season 9 - Episode 21
According to the packaging Bubble Crum is “Crun-Chewy”, which sounds just awful. So when making this recipe, I made sure to include a cracker that was crunchy. I went with Ryvita crackers, although I doubt Homer would seek out something so healthy. Still, his interest in combining gum with other foods is well documented, so what do I know? The pink bubblegum part was more straightforward, Double Bubble seemed like the obvious choice. My entire goal for Bubble Crum was to recreate the look by combining the crackers with gum and then melting them together, what could possiblie go wrong?
- Brown, Crunchy Crackers
- Pink Bubblegum
Cut cracker and gum to match shape and size and place on plate with wax paper. Do NOT proceed with this recipe if you don’t have wax paper…and even if you do you might want to just skip this whole thing entirely. Microwave until gum begins to melt and “mold” with cracker. Let gum cool before consuming.
I knew right from the start this was going to be a disaster. First, and probably most obviously, the gum got bloody everywhere. Of course, I really have no one else to blame. I willingly got it all over the place in a desperate attempt to make something vaguely resembling Bubble Crum. It tasted even worse than it looks, plus I made a total mess. So, I guess – success?

What could possiblie go wrong 👍
Of course, this is certainly NOT the first thing that has gone wrong as you can see from some of my other terrible recipes.
Nuts and gum, together at last. Wait…
Trust me, nuts and game is far superior to this in every way.
Wish there were a recipe to make homemade gum… I believe it would be more practical to make something fresh than microwave gum in order to mold it the way you like. No matter what you do, microwaved gum will always taste aweful…I dont believe this idea was made to make it come true.. A for Effort 🙂
It seems Rachel Ray has a recipe perhaps this is something I will have to try in the future?
I think this would have been better with a sweeter cracker. Or even Ritz crackers?
Interesting theory. I won’t lie, I’m not in any huge rush to recreate this but if I can stomach this AND Nuts and Gum, I suppose I can handle this one more time.
