Adorable Gummies

Recommended Posts

I love gummies - almost any kind of gel-type candy except for sour.  Lately, I've found some really amazing and tasty ones.  I found these cupcakes at Wegman's in the bulk section:

That's a regular sized jelly bean for size comparison.

 

These Legos are the same size as real Legos and fit together the same way:

I could load them up with them and send them home, I guess.

 

Serve their mamas right.

That's the perfect plan! When their mamas come to bring them home, just at the last second when they are closing the car's door you say "hey kids, I have a nice gift for you" and voilà the gummy legos (closed in a box).

So they leave and you observe a huge hurricane forming and going away.

If the next time their mamas bring you something to eat/drink, then be careful.

 I saw the "Lego" gummies here in China a week ago. Lego has been a big craze here for the last couple of years

I have to say that I immediately thought what a *^^#&* stupid idea! Kids are always swallowing Lego bricks and choking. Showing them that some "Lego" is edible is really going to help there!

I'm not usually one to call for the health and safety police, but...

not so dissimilar from the problem with kids eating detergent pods, they look too much like a candy product.

I don’t like most gummy candy at all - but these are so stupid cute I’d buy them anyway and give them to my neighbors who have kids and grandkids.

So, Jessica loves to support my addictions and brought home a packet of gummies that were supposed to be rainbows and unicorns and bears.  I guess they got hot at some point, because they are all stuck together - though they taste fine when pulled apart.  I call them my Chihuly gummies:

Here is the birthday cake I made myself last year with gummy decorations to delight the grand-kids.    They almost came to blows deciding who was getting which slice.

Asian markets can be a treasure trove for "cute" gummies.
