For all those with a sweet tooth, you will love knowing that July 15th is National Gummy Day in the United States!  Not sure how that came to be, but I’m not gonna ask questions.  I say, “Let’s celebrate!”

These delicious creepy crawlies were introduced by the Trolli company in 1981; apparently the company named them “Squiggles” and were marketed as a unique candy with shock factor; they aren’t as “cute” as gummy bears are they?!

Nonetheless, my kids love them… and I am going to take a wild guess and say yours do, too!  Enjoy this collection of gummy worm ideas to do any day of the year!
