    I'm a gummy bear lover and the stuff you get in the store isn't that good. I've made some gummy (squares) today, and they are delicius!!

    Super easy to make and super tasty! I got some gelatin at the store at the baking area, worked for me.

    You guys have any good candy suggestions?

    My version (less ingredients) of Scottish tablet. Half-fill a pot with sugar. add enough milk just to wet it. (optional) 1/2 tsp vanilla.
    Bring to boil then simmer for about 20 minutes (until it turns golden brown). Keep mixing so it doesnt stick. Pour into silicone tray and let cool then put in fridge until completely set. Eat.

    The recipe is at the link but I can post it here also.

    Mix 1 cup of of water with ½ cup of gelatin. Let it sit for about 15min.

    Mix ½ cup of orange juice with 1 cup of sugar. Get it to a boil. Then mix the water/gelatin mix with it, add the lemon juice (half lemon) and make it dissolved. Pour it into whatever you want....i'm gonna buy some gummy bear shape things soon.

    Then put into fridge (make its not hot though) and eat! :D

    So I'm assuming there is literally no commercial candy available in stores worth looking at?

    Of course there is. Gummybears are an excellent choice.

    I think the Yummy Earth organic range looks not too bad at all. Ordered some for the kids from iherb.

    (they include gummy bears)

    Considering gelatin is a good culture medium for bacteria, I wonder what's not listed in the label. Haven't found any good candy.

    Most commercial gummy bears have vegetable oil in.

    Not in any Yummy Earth suff Ive bought. Dont know about Haribo.

    I disagree with Pete, these ingredients looks pretty safe to me, if you dont want to risk gelatin just their organic candies then.

    Yummy Earth ingredients don't look good to me - doesn't use real sugar, some have weird oils.
