It is believed that gum drops have been around in the United States since somewhere around 1801. They have appeared in many different forms, starting out as a hard candy and now being most popular as Gummis. Some actually have fruit flavorings but most are really little more than sugar on top of… sugar. But we all have our favorite, mine is the red which sometimes taste like cherries. They are fun to eat, certainly sweet and although they contain some sort of fruit they are not all that good for us.
