July 15th is Gummy Worm Day. I am not sure why this day was picked to celebrate gummy worms, but I wont question it! Instead, I will just take some time today to enjoy some gummy worms by making one or more of these amazing recipes!
Before we jump into the goodies, I thought maybe you would like to learn a little more about gummy worms… Gummy worms were developed by German company Trolli in 1981. They were a fun way to entice kids and gross out parents.
Gummy worms are made out of gelatin, amongst other things. I won’t go into what gelatin is made out of because it makes me not want to eat it at all! You can even make your own gummy worms at home, although they may not be the same!
Now onto the treat. There are plenty of way to enjoy gummy worms besides just simply popping them in your mouth. You can bake with them, freeze them, or mix them in with your drinks!
