Hey candy lovers! It’s 2019, and nothing in the candy world compares to the beloved Gummi Bear, or is it Gummy Bear? We’ll get to that later…

With choices like Watermelon, Hot Cinnamon and Gigantic Bananas we don’t think any other candy can compete with the demand of these fun and cute confections. No matter your favorite adaptation of these chewy delectable temptations, you have every reason to adore them.

Haribo or Bust

Those shiny and squishy bears have had millions of loyal fans across the world for decades. In fact, the first known Gummi bear (Gummibär)  was made in Germany in the early 1920’s by the self made candy connoisseur, Hans Riegel.

HARIBO soon became one of the largest Gummi Bear distributors in the world.

What started off as colorless, hard candies soon turned into soft gelatin-based fruit snacks that resembled the popular bears that were seen dancing in festivals and parades.

Long Lost Delfa Rolls coming back to life!

UPDATED SEPTEMBER 6,  2018

Blast from the Past? History of Delfa Rolls

Are you young enough to remember the Delfa Rolls, also called Danish Ribbons? They used to be sold by a few convenience stores in the 1960s. They were pretty hard to find because they were imported from overseas. It was a lot of fun eating Delfa Rolls because you could peel off the strips and chew on them, or just pop the entire roll in your mouth and suck on it until it was gone. You got a roll of licorice that you could separate into four rolls.
