The gummi bear originated in Germany and was invented in 1922 by HAns RIegel, a candy maker from BOnn.
It is made from a mixture of gelatin, sugar, glucose syrup, starch, flavouring, citric acid, and food colouring.
As a truly good sweet must also be a feast for the eyes, the colouration is the most important step in the production.
Each gummi bear is hand painted by qualified artists.
