Hans Riegel from Germany came thought of the gummy candy idea in 1922. The candy was in bear form and wasn't shipped to America until around 1981. It was then that American candy manufacturer Trolli created the gummy worm. The purpose was to give children something good to eat, while shocking parents. Gummy worms are one of the most popular gummy characters around.
The Gummi Worms have a sour coating for a flavor that will wake-up your taste buds and pucker you lips. Flavors include Cherry, Green Apple, Pineapple, Lemon, and Orange covered with just the right about of sour flavor.
