The New Smoker Review
Dancing Gummy Bears
The year is 1920. German confectioner Hans Riegel Sr. gains great inspiration by the trained dancing bears of Europe’s markets and street festivals. He rushes back to his lab and creates what is forever known as “The Gummy Bear”. How taking in an innocent bear show in the middle of the day resulted in him wanting to eat smaller more gelatinous versions of them is unclear. Perhaps Herr Riegel also had a penchant for smoking a lot of herb. That is pure hearsay however.
