Chu-Bops!

In 1980, a company called the Amural Products Company merged two very important things from the time: records and bubblegum. They created Chu-Bops, which sounds like a Chewbacca cover album of 80s dance songs (and now I really need a Chewbacca cover album of 80s dance songs), and they were pretty much just tiny records made out of bubble gum. Nobody got that shit for the gum since the gum was like bubblegum-flavored discs of actual vinyl (read: gross). They bought it for the extremely collectable LP sleeve that included lyrics! If you were the type of kid who collected Chu-Bops sleeves for your Barbie, then your Barbie was that dude from High Fidelity before that dude from High Fidelity even existed.

Chu-Bops were based on actual album covers from Blondie, ABBA, The Beatles, and many more. There’s an entire site devoted to Chu-Bops, and they say that some Chu-Bops had an offer to get a collectible stand for your tiny 3×3 inch covers, others had coupons to buy an actual LP of the artist, and others had a form to join the artists’ fan club. Chu-Bops were also less than two quarters each:

Chu-Bops were introduced in the 1980 ‘s by the Amural Products Company. The first series they produced, consisted of eight different rock and soul album covers by assorted artists including The Knack, Pat Benatar, Rush, The Spinners and Abba. Each miniature album had a song lyric (usually the biggest hit) printed on the back side. Once opened, each “Bop album” included the lyrics to a hit song, and pictures of the artist.

When “Chu-Bops” first appeared in stores they were each sold at a price of 29 cents per “album”, and the special collectors editions Elvis ,Beatles and Rolling Stones were only 33 cents per “album”.

Chu-Bops weren’t around for that long, but you can find old ones on eBay, of course. And some of them still have the gum inside. If you do get one, I should tell you that the gum is for chewing (or for breaking your teefs since it’s shit) and not for playing on a mini record player. That will mess your mini record player up. Not that I found out the hard way or anything.
