TODAY IS GUMMI WORM DAY
You know what the best bait for fishing for people with a sweet tooth is? If you guessed the gummy worm, you’re in the right place with the right sense of humor. Gummy candies have been around a while, but nothing strikes our fancy like a rich chocolate brownie topped with green frosting and a gummy work sticking out of it. But honestly, we’re happy to have them right out of the bag. Gummy Worm Day celebrates these stretchy, stringy, gummy, delicious treats.
