I love gummy bears! They include all of the best things candy has to offer. They are sweet. They are chewy. And best of all, they are so darn cute!

Walking down the candy isle at any supermarket or Target around Halloween season is so overwhelming! Bags and bags of candy everywhere! And the sales!
