Red Hot Cinnamon Gummi Bears are proof that sugar and spice make bears extra especially nice. A fabulous new addition to a candy buffet for parties and special occasions such as Valentine’s Day, Christmas, weddings, anniversaries and engagements, they’re packed with flavour and a hot cinnamon punch. These tasty little guys are a cheerful red colour. They’re also gluten-free to boot. Gummi Bears by Albanese Confectionery are actually descendants of almost a century of tradition; gummi bears were first invented in Germany in 1920. The factory worker who came up with the idea decided to make the candies in the shape of bears to appeal to children. Turns out that adults really love them too! By the 1980’s gummi bears had caught on world-wide and the rest, as they say, is history.
