6 Things You Didn’t Know About Gummy Bears

6 Things You Didn’t Know About Gummy BearsGummy bears are a classic, chewy treat that probably bring back a childhood memory or two. Many of us know we like the red one or green one, but can’t tell you what flavors those are. Project 7, the flavor-obsessed and cause-based confectionery company, wants to amp up the flavor and fun of gummies. This brand just launched new organic gourmet gummies with healthy ingredients and three full, fun flavors. See below for six fun facts you may not have known about this favorite treat and how Project 7 is raising the gummy bar.

  1. Gummy bears were first invented in the early 1920’s in Germany

  2. The traditional gummy bear is made from a mixture of sugar, starch, flavoring, food coloring and gelatin, Project 7’s gourmet gummies are made with natural ingredients and have no artificial colors or dyes. Project 7’s gummies are colored with natural vegetable extracts including black carrot, annatto, radish, and turmeric, and are also sugar-free, gluten-free, preservative-free, non-GMO and organic.

  3. Most gummy bears are only available in flavors such as lime and orange, Project 7’s gummies are available in exciting gourmet flavors such as Birthday Cake, Grapefruit Melon, Front Porch Lemonade and Rainbow Ice.

  4. Today gummy bears come in the form of multivitamins and other supplements, which let’s face it, aren’t that yummy. Project 7’s gourmet gummies, though delicious, also contain one serving of Vitamin C per serving.

  5. While other gummy bears are made abroad, Project 7’s gummies are made right here in the U. S. of A!

  6. The “gummy bear” name was derived from the original main ingredient, gum arabic. Project 7’s name is derived from their mission to give back to seven areas of need worldwide with every purchase. From helping the homeless, to fundraising education, eating gummies has never tasted – or felt – this good.
