The first American gummi bear was made by the Herman Goelitz Company (now the Jelly Belly Candy Company) in 1981. Later that same year Haribo brought their business to the U.S.
Also in 1981 the Trolli Company created the gummi worm. The idea was to make a candy for children that their parents might find mildly shocking. Today gummi candies are available in many shapes and sizes.
These Gummi Burgers always make me laugh. My friend Julie and I use to eat them all the time. We would take them apart and make a “Custom” Burgers. Some days we didn’t feel like eating the meat so we would set it aside and just have veggie burgers that day. We ate sooo many one day we got sick, you think that stopped us from getting more? No way!
To this day we both still love them. She has a 3 year old son now and he loves getting them in the mail and I think it brings back very fun memories for his mom. ~ Corry from California
