In case you were wondering what gummy candies are made of ???
Gummies or jelly sweets are a broad, general type of Gelatin-based, chewy candy.
Gelatin is a translucent, colorless, odorless, and nearly tasteless substance that is made by prolonged boiling of skin, cartilage and bones from animals. It's made primarily from the stuff meat industries have left over - we're talking about pork skins and cattle bones. Yummy !!!
It's the philosophy of using the whole animal.
