In addition to being the leading source of goldfish for the entire world, East Braintree is a prominent manufacturer of bubble gum. There are six different companies that produce bubble gum. East Braintree gum is produced in all the standard flavors. As well, manufacturers here are leading innovators in bubble gum technology and have pioneered flavors such as peanut butter, corned beef, mashed potato and gravy, apple sauce, and corn flakes with milk and banana slices.
The other main industry that East Braintree is known for is the production of spruce gum tea. The vast spruce forests to the west of the city supply millions of litres of spruce gum every year which then distilled, tried, and later made into tea crystals. The tea can be served hot or iced depending on personal preferences.
