Germany originiated gummi candy with the gummi bears. But Hans Reigel’s gummi bears soon evolved into Trolli’s gummi worms. The gummi worm making process begins with an artist sketching what he/she wants the candy to look like.

That sketch is then turned into a small plaster mold. The gummi ingredients are poured into large boilers where they are heated and then colored and flavored. The mix is poured into the worm molds and left for up to 5 days. After they have formed their shape they are coated with beeswax to make the worms less sticky. 

Gummi worms were created with the intention of shocking parents and giving kids a fun candy. This was extremely successful. The shock still lives on as gummi worms are dug out of dirt and are slurped into kids’ mouths.  I don’t mean real dirt, I mean the chocolate pudding with crushed up Oreos, the fun and easy to make dessert that every kid craves.

The satisfaction of holding that dangling gummi worm over your open mouth and then dropping it in to chew up that hunk of gummi can’t be outgrown by experience, or maturity, and certainly not by age.

Enjoy Gummy Peach Rings in moderation…

As soon as you open the bag, a burst of the peachy sweetness aroma floats up your nose preparing your senses for the eating of peach ring.

Manufactured by Farley & Sathers, under the brand name Trolli,  these ring shaped gummies are fun to put on your fingers to admire your beautiful orange and yellow jewelry before ripping them off with your teeth. If you suck on the peach ring instead of chewing it up the sandpapery sugar melts away so that you can feel the smooth gummy squirm around your mouth.

As good as this candy is, I advise moderation. Though moderation is key with most candies, this one I can tell you from personal experience is one in which you should surely limit your intake.

Eating too many peach rings can make your stomach gurgle and your head pound. It gives you a good excuse to share this one with all of the watering mouths watching you chew up the peachy smelling, sugary, slightly sour gummy.
