Itâ€™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 â€śgummisâ€ť made?
Thatâ€™s rightâ€”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 â€śrubberâ€ť 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!
My kids love them!
