Aahhh what candy could be better known than the gummi bear? These cute little bear shaped gelatin candies are irresistible, even if you don’t like the taste. The smooth slimy texture is addicting and each color has its own corresponding flavor. The gummi bear was originated in Germany under the name Gummibär (rubber bear) or Gummibärchen (little rubber bear). Hans Reigel was the founder of the Haribo company in 1922 when he also invented bear-shaped sweets. Haribo first introduced its Gold-Bear product in the 1960s, and it has been thriving ever since.

A bag of gummi bears is just so colorful and squishy that it automatically brings happiness to anyone in its presence. A bag comes with so many that you can offer them to anyone who has bright eyes staring at the bag. The translucent bears practically glow in the light making the blues, purples, greens, reds, yellows, oranges, and pinks stand out and gleam. One thing is for sure, you can never go wrong with gummi bears.
