Transcript of Which gum blows the biggest bubble?

Which gum makes for bigger bubbles to be blown?
Experiment Description
In my experiment I tested which brand of gum makes the biggest bubbles. I used Juicy Fruit, Stride 2.0, and Big Red brands of gum and blew a bubble with each gum, then measured it in centimeters.I repeated this process three times then averaged the results.
Conclusions
In conclusion, not all brands of bubble gum have the same size bubble. They all have different ingredients which are going to make slight differences when it comes to the size of the bubble that you can blow. In bubble gum recipes, the manufacturer carefully balances the amount of gum base for elasticity, sweeteners for stickiness, flavor, and softeners. Which is why Stride 2.0 gum made for better bubbles because it had more gum base then Big red and Juicy Fruit that had similar ingredients with eachother. Even though it costs 25 cents more than the other its a good buy becuaseit makes for good bubble blowing.

contains Sorbitol, Gum Base, Glycerin, Mannitol, natural and artificial Flavoring, Xylitol; Less than 2% of: Acesulfame potassium, Aspartame, BHT (to maintain freshness), Blue 1 Lake, Blue 2 Lake, Soy Lecithin, and Sucralose.

Ingredients & what they do.
Juicy Fruit:
~ Sugar: A sweetening additive
~ Gum base: A non-nutritive masticatory substance used as a support for the edible and soluble portion of chewing gum.
~ Corn syrup: A sweet syrup made by treating corn starch with acid enzymes.
~ Dextrose: A sweetener derived from various plant starches. ~Glycerol: (Glycerine) A natural or synthetic (petroleum) byproduct of soap manufacturing.
Big Red:
~ Sugar: A sweetening additive
~ Gum base: A non-nutritive masticatory substance used as a support for the edible and soluble portion of chewing gum.
~ Corn syrup: A sweet syrup made by treating corn starch with acid enzymes.
~ Dextrose: A sweetener derived from various plant starches. ~Glycerol: (Glycerine) A natural or synthetic (petroleum) byproduct of soap manufacturing.
Results
The results of my experiment were that Stride 2.0 gum made almost 3 times as big bubbles than Juicy Fruit and Big Red gum.
Experimental Setup & Graph
Stride 2.0:

~ Gum base: A non-nutritive masticatory substance used as a support for the edible and soluble portion of chewing gum.
