Gummy Bears in History
German candy maker Hans Riegal first created Dancing Bears in 1922 as the company Haribo, which was an acronym for his full name, Hangs Riegal Bonn. The name was soon changed and, in 1982, gummy bears were imported to the US by the Herman Goelitz company (now the Jelly Belly Company). If you want to visit a Haribo gummy bear factory in the US, you’re out of luck! All 18 factories are in Europe. Gummy bears inspired Disney’s Adventure of the Gummy Bears (1986-88), a tv show about gummy bears with magical powers.
No matter which flavor you pick, gummy bears are teeming with tantalizing softness and fruity flavor! You can have endless fun with these gummies; stack them up, make them fight, or pop them in your mouth for them to be eaten. There really is no substitute for this classic childhood candy.
