"G" is for Gummi Bear: Precede With Caution!

So many "G" words to choose from and today I decided on
Gummi Bear.

Definition: A Gummi bear (also spelled as gummy bear) is a small, rubbery-textured confectionery, similar to a jelly baby in English-speaking countries. The candy is roughly 2 centimetres (0.79 in) long and shaped in the form of a bear. The gummi bear is one of many gummies, popular gelatin-based candies that come in a variety of shapes and colors.

HISTORY: (Found on Wikipedia) The gummi bear originated in Germany, where it is popular under the name
About this sound Gummibär (help·info) (rubber bear) or About this sound Gummibärchen (help·info) (little rubber bear). Hans Riegel Sr., a candy maker from Bonn, started the Haribo company in 1920. In 1922, he invented the Dancing Bear,[1] a fruit-flavored gum made in the shape of a bear.[2] The success of the Dancing Bear's successor would later become Haribo's world-famous Gold-Bears candy product in 1967.[3] Trolli is another gummi candy manufacturer and the first to introduce gummi worms in 1981.[4] Gummi bears are also one of the few types of candy to have been turned into a television show.[5]

You either love them or hate them. For me, it depends on my mood. I don't mind eating them singularly, but I do not like them on ice cream. I like some flavors better than others. If you gave me the choice between gummi bears and something with chocolate, I want the chocolate; sorry gummi bear.

As many of you have seen on youtube, there is the Gummi Bear song. Warning: this song is highly addictive once listened to; especially if you have listened to it simultaneously for more than 20 minutes at a time. Just remember before you watch,this is what one person had to say after watching the video,
"This song forever changed my mental state. The damage is irreversible."

  1. I LOVE LOVE Gummi Bears. I'm picky about which ones I buy though. My dad was in the military and we were stationed in Germany 3 years. I grew up on the REAL THING and they are YUMMY. I'm always pronouncing them like GOOMEE Bears, rolling the "r". People look at me like I'm crazy. Great post.

  2. I like gummy bears. I'm not huge on candy (except chocolate) but I also like Jolly Ranchers and Swedish Fish. That's about it. Good post, darlin!

  3. I WON'T eat gummy bears. But I actually like the song ;-) There's a followup with a soccer theme, where the Gummy Bears sing Queen's WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS ... okay, so my kids watch too many You Tube videos...

  4. I could go for some gummy bears right now - well of course I could, I gave up sweets for lent, ack!
