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!
