If there's a girl with Wrigley eyes, then I guess Medusa might be called the girl with the wriggly hair.

Macrophthalmia is the medical term for unusually large eyes. Nystagmus is the involuntary movement of the eyes that is common in people with visual impairments. I suppose one could call nystagmus "wriggly eyes."

The article that Yudith linked to mentions Beeman's Pepsin Gum, so the use of pepsin in gum was a thing. It was also used in Pepsodent toothpaste (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pepsodent) but not Pepsi (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pepsi).
