When I was little, I could down an entire bag of Gummi bears in minutes.
Who am I kidding, I still can!! So imagine my delight years ago, when Gummi vitamins made their debut at the stores.
Corn syrup? Check
Artificial flavors? Check
Colors not found in nature? Check
Enough vitamins and/or minerals to satisfy this consumer? Check
Enough gummi goodness to make me not care either way? Check, check, check.
Hey, I’m one of those sorry adults who just cannot seem to swallow those honkin’ vitamins..esp the ones with calcium. 😶 Once on a road trip, I had to make a wheels on fire emergency exit off I-95 in Nowheresville, South Carolina, pull into a Jack in the Box and down a greasy biscuit STAT so I could clear one itsy bitsy teenie weenie Advil from where it had lodged in my throat.
This is not my fault! 🤨
So anyway, as I take a moment this morning to be grateful for miracles like the Covid vaccine, I’d like to add an extra note of thanks for those fun and yummy Gummi vitamins without which I would clearly be zinc deficient. 😉
Now, if we could just try to get these Covid vaccine formulas into Gummi bears..
