Легендарная жвачка «ЛЮБОВЬ ЭТО...»
Updated: Feb 14
Have you ever seen this bubble gum brand? “LOVE IS…” is one of the favorite kids’ bubble-gum in Russia in the 90s. It was the time when the Russian market started to fill with a lot of imported items meant to be sold in the third world countries. Along with other nonsense, eye-catching colorful bubble gum called “Love is…” appeared on the shelves of the stores. It’s not the bubble gum itself that attracted almost all the kids and some grownups as well, but the colorful wrapping paper with a comic strip on it. Every piece had a different message about what love meant, and a cute cartoon illustrating the message. Most of the comic strips were funny, but there were also some serious ones. Collecting those gum wrappers was such a big deal among young children, and having the biggest collection in class or in the neighborhood could bring a kid recognition and popularity.

when he’s learning how to cook her favorite dish
giving flowers to her mother
often writing him text messages
asking her to dance
