All gummis great and small

They aren't good for anything, but I love gummis so. Here are some of my favorites:

Trade Joe's Gummy Tummies (at right) - Shockingly good. A workmate shared them with me and I am hooked. Each one has some liquid center in their tummy.... which are super tasty. I recommend leaving them exposed to air for a day - somehow when the gummy hardens a tad it gets even better texture.

Haribo Gold Bears - If you don't know what these are, you're a Philistine. A little harder than yuor average gummi, and high on flavor. Also: The company who makes them has been making them for NINETY YEARS. Nice

Also good: Gummi sharks, Gummi cherries.
Not good at all: That God-awful gummi cola, sour gummi worms

Haribo has a kind of ghetto appeal I find. Maybe its the gold.

I'd like to use this 5 day gap in your posting activity to suggest a part 2 of the gummi blog--which you could take the following angles on:

1) Man on the street interviews about gummi bears

2) Gummi bears and celebrities

3) Gummi bears endorsed by athletes (perhaps your bocce team could obtain some custom bags/uniforms in exchange for your public approval.)

4) Long term effects of smoking gummi bears.

5) Commentary on the mix pack. i.e. why can't we get a bag with all one flavor. Is this laziness or advanced random reward pattern marketing?

Or you could write about how to Photoshop gummis so that they don't have wrinkles.
