Itâ€™s National Gumdrop Day! Gumdrops are a tasty, chewy candy
made with gelatin and coated with sugar. Gumdrops can come in fruity
flavors like grape, cherry, orange, and lemon or spiced flavors like
cinnamon, clove, mint, and anise.
Many people believe that a man named Percy Trusdale invented the
gumdrop in 1801, but there is very little evidence to support this
claim. What we do know is that gumdrops have been a popular confection
for at least two hundred years. The board game Candy Land features both a
Gumdrop Pass and a Gumdrop Mountain!
To celebrate National Gumdrop Day, use colorful gumdrops to decorate a cake or buy a bag of them to share with your friends!
I don't care for gumdrops.
I only like the green ones...lol
