The Birth of “Gummi” Candies

Modern gummy candies all trace their origins to Turkish Delight – first sold as a sore throat remedy in 9th century Arabic apothecaries. Hundreds of years later in the 1920s, a German candy-maker created delight-based little bears called “rubber candy.” The German word for “rubber” is – yes! – “gummy.” Plenty of other candy-makers jumped in, making their own version of gummy candies. The first modern vegan gummy candy was made in Sweden in the 1970s – Swedish Fish!
