Question Which brand of bubblegum lasts longer-hubba bubba, or bubblicious?

I need help in my science project. I dont know where to research for the differences that the two types of bubblegums have. My teacher says that first I have to do a research to find out a hypothesis. My hypothesis has to be like this: If ________ <I dont know what to write ,Then,<I also dont know what to write!

Hi MGBubbles

Your hypothesis could be
If the bubble gum has more X content, then it lasts longer

You should go to the store and look at the main contents of the 2 bubble gum brands you mentioned. Then make a list of the contents you want to investigate. For example, one possibility to investigate is sugar.

Hence, "If the bubble gum has more *sugar* then it lasts longer"

You should research and try to figure out which is the main ingredient of bubble gum that makes it last longer. It may not be sugar. It may be some additive for example.

ALl the best.

Talking Yes

A way to find this out is to chew a piece of gum for as long as you can until there is no flavor left. Then compare the ingredients, likw scienceiscool said, and see which has the most of what in it. Your hypothesis could look somewhat like this:
Which brand has the longest lasting flavor, and do the ingredients have an impact on how long the gum stays.
Or something like that I can't really write hypothesises well. But remember to keep your mind open to any ideas!Good luck.

Default gum

I think that it might also have to do with how old the gum is.

Does this project provide any numerical data? This sounds more of a survey than a project.
