Taipei Bubble Gum Signage

These photos of a Snow White bubble gum sign were taken in Taipei at the Taiwan Storyland, a quasi-museum and themed food hall that recreates Taiwan of the mid-1960s. The sign probably dates from this era since the rest of the museum does.

Not sure if it was an actual product or simply art. If the gum was real, it could have been introduced to the island by Americans after WWII. Or it may have been a Taiwanese product made without licensing from Disney.

  1. I'll bet it was unlicensed! Cool though.

    1. If I had to bet on it, my money would be on "unlicensed" too.
