Remember gummi worms? Yes, those delicious sour and sweet candies of your childhood that resembled worms? Remember how you ate them by the fistful just to gross out other adults? Well, now you can do that again once a year on Gummi Worm Day.

German Origins

Gummi worms are gelatin-based candies that look like colorful worms. They were first created and marketed by German candy company, Trolli, and are just one of the many gummi candies available in the market.

The first gummi (or gummy) candies were created in 1922 by another German candy company called Haribo. These were in the shape of bears and are now popularly known around the world as gummi bears.

How to Celebrate?

  • Treat yourself with a big bag of gummi worm candies.
  • Bring gummi worms to work and share them with your co-workers.
  • Learn how to make them at home from scratch.

Did You Know...

...that the word gummi comes from the German word gummi, meaning rubber?
