A history of animal shaped gummy candies

They’re vibrant. They’re delectable. You might be shocked to find that this American delicacy originated in Germany.

In early 1902, Hans Riegel, a penniless confectionery factory

worker from Bonn, ventured out on his own to dabble in the candy business. After a few years of meager revenues, Riegel realized he needed to branch out. As a result, he started thinking about soft gelatin-based candies, which were popular at the time, and children adored bears.

What could be better than a bear-shaped chewy candy with a fruity flavor? In 1922, after tinkering with the formula, Riegel created the first gummi bear. They were a huge hit right away!

However, gummy worms would not appear on the scene until 1981, almost 60 years later. Gummy animal-shaped candies are still popular today, and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Most gummy animal-shaped candies are made from gelatin, which must be heated and mixed with flavor, coloring, and sugar (or some kind of sweetening agent). 

Sweets Nuts

In the 1930s, Hans Riegel’s father created an autumn ritual in which children could bring acorns and chestnuts to his workshop and exchange them for sweets. They conduct the event at Haribo’s Bonn headquarters in late October/early November, and they feed the collected nuts to animals in wildlife sanctuaries.

Drunken Animal Shaped Gummies

Of the widespread, unofficial adult uses of animal-shaped gummy candy, bears seem to be the most popular, soaking them in vodka for a set period, after which they become a happy hour delicacy. The gummies absorb the booze and give you a boost.
