It’s Almost National Gummy Worm Day!

gummy candyJuly 15th is National Gummy Work Day! Gummy worms are a candy that everyone loves, either in regular or sour forms. Eat individually, add to Jell-O, or to a famous dirt pudding and they’re irresistible. So what’s the history behind this well-loved gummy candy?

According to candy historians, gummy worms originated in 1922 in Germany. However, it was candy maker Trolli who introduced them to the US in the 1980’s. But why worms? Apparently, Trolli wanted to make something “gross enough looking to shock parents and simultaneously attract children.”

While the rest is history, both Trolli and Haribo have their own versions of this creepy crawly gummy candy. Many worms are the combinations of flavors, making them striped. The most common combos are red/orange, red/white, and green/yellow. There are also the original gummy and sour sugar flavors that are both pretty popular.
