National Gummi Worm Day

It’s National Gummi Worm Day! These yummy candies were created by the German company Trolli in 1981.

Did you know that gummi worms were not the first “gummis” made? That’s right—another familiar candy, the gummi bear, was invented about 60 years before the worm. This first gummi was created by Hans Riegel, the founder of Haribo. It was named because of its rubber-like texture. In fact, "gummi" means “rubber” in German.

These creepy, crawly treats now exist in a variety of flavors. Sweet or sour, red or green, the choice is yours! Grab a bag of your favorite gummi worms and celebrate National Gummi Worm Day!

  • Today is also National Tapioca Pudding Day
  • July is National Grilling Month & National Ice Cream Month & National Vacation Rental Month
  • This week is National Zoo Keeper Week

I love gummi worms! When I was little I collected a whole family of them- I'd stretch them out different lengths and had a Daddy and mommy and a bunch of babies, and my aunt (pregnant at the time) ate the daddy. I was crushed. She told me we could make another one and I cried and cried and said you can't just replace a daddy like that!!! Haha I was a tad melodramatic...

Also, funny it's national anti boredom month because I've been on a roll the past two weeks and haven't been bored once. And gross, tapioca pudding shouldn't have a day. Banana pudding maybe, chocolate pudding definitely. But tapioca I think not!!!

 Not a big gummy worm fan, but I already had a hot dog today and will likely have ice cream tonight! :)

Why is July and unlucky month for weddings?

 Not a gummy worm fan, so I think I'll find a Zoo keeper and see if he wants to share a hotdog and a blueberry sundae. lol
