This unofficial and fun holiday is also called National Gumdrop Day in the United States.

Bright Colored Candy

Gumdrops are brightly colored candy or sweets made of pectin or gelatin. The cone-shaped treats are typically covered in sugar and are usually fruit flavored.

Gumdrops that are flavored with artificial spices like cinnamon and mint are called spice drops.

Decoration for Cakes

Generally cone shaped, gumdrops are often used to decorate cakes and gingerbread houses during Christmas time.

Similar sweet tooth holidays are Gummi Worm Day and Candy Corn Day.

How to Celebrate?

  • It’s easy to celebrate this day. Just get a bag full of delicious gumdrops and enjoy them to your heart's content.
  • Try and make gumdrops in your own kitchen. Share them with your family and friends.
