Jelly foam is the primary ingredient in the creation of fluffy slime. Slimers have termed slime mixed with foam chunks as “floam”. You might have had a slimy bizarre toy when you were younger that you used to squish and squeeze–we’re talking about something like that. Mixing foam in slime is barely a new trend in the world of slime. The tiny white chunks make it interesting to listen to the sounds produced when you squish it. You can stretch the floam into some form of spider web or make it into a ball and bounce it. One popular slime birthed from the floam trend is bubble gum slime. This is typically a light pink slime with several ripped up foam cubes, which gives off the appearance of chewed up bubble gum.
