What's the story behind gummy bears? How did they get their start, and what makes them so perfectly chewy? They're a ridiculously satisfying candy, but as it turns out, there's a lot more to their story than meets the eye. Here's what you should know about gummy bears.

Gummy bears have been around for almost 100 years. They were created and popularized by a German company named Haribo. Hans Riegel, the founder of Haribo, was only 27 when he became a trained confectioner and started his company in 1920.

Riegel began by producing hard candies until he decided to try a few experiments with gelatin. It took two years, but he invented his first bear-shaped candy made of gummy in 1922. Riegel originally called them Dancing Bears and they were a bit larger and thinner than modern gummy bears. It wasn't until 1960 that Haribo updated the Dancing Bears name to Gold-Bears. Then in 1978, the bears changed shape to the shorter, thicker version that we know and love today.
