Which Gummy Candy Are You?

Gummy Candy

Gummy candy is a gelatin-based chewable sweet. Its history is rooted in Europe, where it was first invented by a company called Fryers out of the United Kingdom in 1864. Gummy candies are mostly made of sucrose, gelatin, corn syrup, starch, water, and food acids to give the candy a little extra tart flavoring. One of the most popular gummy candies is the gummy bear—a small, fruit-flavored gummy candy in the shape of a bear. Originating in Germany in 1920, these sweet candies were inspired by dancing bears in German festivals and have been sold in nearly every country in the world for the past 100 years. Sort of amazing!
