Who Invented Gummi Bears?

By January 24, 2014

Follow me on:

gummi bearDid you every wonder what kind of person would invent an edible candy that looked like a night crawler worm? Do you know what the main ingredient in gummi candy is? What was the first gummi candy? Was it gummi worms or gummi bears? To find out the answers to these and other burning questions read my sweet article on all things gummi.
