Yummie is a Swedish bubblegum dance group from Haninge outside Stockholm, whose music sounds sweet and sugary, with thumping dance beats and rather silly and funny lyrics. It has been suggested that the group sounds like a composition of dance groups Aqua and Ace of Base, with some songs being more bubblegum poppy than dance.
Yummie's roots are in a group known as Unit C, which was formed in 1995 and originally consisted of Petra Garnås, Göran Florén, and Thomas Walther. Following a performance at a local television station, at which Unit C met Teddy Gustavsson, Gustavsson soon joined the group as well.
A demo music video for the song Hello (which would later be included in their debut album in a remixed form) was created in 1997, and after a series of live performances and songs recorded in the studio, the label Stockhouse picked up Unit C.
The group's sound was changing, and Unit C was known as Bubblegum from 1998 to 1999. In 1999, Bubblegum's name was changed to Yummie. Also in 1999, the group's best known song, Bubblegum, was released as a single.
In 2000, the group's debut album Sweet 'n Sour was released in several countries, including Japan, Estonia, Norway, and the group's native Sweden.
After releasing the song Get Out of my Face to radio stations and successfully performing at Estonia's Laulupidu, the group disbanded in 2001. An album called Bar B Q was also in the works prior to the split, but was never released due to fears of the group not getting enough sales, and having the album illegally downloaded instead.
