A lot of people love chocolate, but gummy bear enthusiasts are zealous.
They are loyal to either Haribo or Black Forest, are keenly aware that there was a 1980s cartoon dedicated to the rainbow-colored confection aptly called The Adventures of the Gummi Bears, and get a wide-eyed twinkle in their eye whenever someone discovers a new gummy shape like dinosaurs, Army Men, and even anatomically correct gummy hearts.
Most likely, a gummy bear buff even knows how to make their own gummies from scratch, in the comfort of their own kitchen. And even if they do, nothing beats the sugar rush of creating something new out of an old favorite.
And now I've found the perfect frozen, summer treat involving my favorite candy. We made them here in the LittleThings office, and we absolutely devoured them! All you need to pull off this fun, seasonal sweet is a Popsicle tray, two cans of Sprite, your favorite varieties of gummies, and a freezer. That's it!
Best part? It's as delicious as it's simple to make...
All you need is two cans of Sprite, a Popsicle tray and sticks, and gummies (we chose worms, bears, and a few fun ones like pugs and dinosaurs). If you're looking for a healthier option, try it with cut fruit.
LittleThing's Director of Ultimate Cuteness, Smoky the Pug, gets a sniff. He approves.
