Gummi Worms history
 
History of Gummi Candy: The gummi bear was first created in Germany in 1922 by Hans Riegel Bonn who started the Haribo Company using an acronym of his name. The confection immediately became popular. For many years, gummi bears were imported to America where high school students first learned of the candy in their German classes. [more below]

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.

 
When I was really little I remember there was this cute boy living down the street and I really wanted to meet him. I was walking down the street and I saw him walk out of his house eating gummy worms. So the next day I go to the store down the block and I bought a HUGE bag for myself.
 
A week later I walked by his house and he walked outside and I was chewing on my gummy worms and then I started to choke. I was really embarrassed by what happened that day that I never asked him to play again. ~ Jessica from Washington

I remember being in the fourth grade the first time I was introduced to Gummy Worms. I had an amazing fourth grade teacher, very progressive for the mid eighties. She was always thinking of creative ways to help us learn. One day she incorporated gummy worms into her lesson plan...what subject? I couldn't tell you but I know that it ended with her talking about a worm and she slowly held up a dangling "worm," opened her mouth and started chewing. The whole class laughed and she passed out one gummy worms to each student. I can still recall the taste and texture of that worm. Wonderful. I still love gummy worms. My favorite are the red and white! ~Liana from Ohio
