"Real" gummis Wed, 12/12/07 12:45 PM (permalink)
On my recent trip to Germany we brought back a bag of gummi bears made in Bad Teinach in the Black Forset. They were made with with juice rather than corn syrup.

They were the most delicious little things. Flavors like grapefruit, mandarin orange, cherry (I typed "sherry" by mistake, which is also a good idea..) They were a bit softer than usual and just terrific.

Has anyone had similar anywhere?

    Yes-when I was a kid in the 70's and 80's we had a German Deli in Toms River NJ. They had all kinds of great food. I remember both the swedish fish and gummis tasted unlike what you get today. They were in jars and you scooped out what you wanted unlike the prepackaged ones in the supermarket today.

    On a side and unrelated note-they made great German potato salad too. Wish they were still there.

      Do you remember from what company?

      My 2 fav's are Haribo & Trolli (Not the US version either)

      Trolli has a better *BAM* of flavor than Haribo, but Haribo's flavors are more distinct.

      I have ordered directly from Haribo's candy store (so to get the good German ones)

      I could eat a whole big bag of them.

      In 2002, I smuggled back 10 lbs of Haribo Gummi Bears from Munich. Hmmmmmmmm
