You’ll find gummy pumpkins in all sizes, from bite-sized treats and snacks to larger ones that are perfect for displaying at Halloween parties.

Whether you prefer a traditional pumpkin shape or something more playful like a smiling jack-o’-lantern, there’s no shortage of options when it comes to these delightful candies.


How the gummies are made?

Gummy pumpkins are made in a way similar to candy corn. They mix and heat corn syrup, honey, sugar, and food colouring in large kettles to create a very sweet syrup. Source: Wikipedia

The typical ingredients are:

“Corn syrup, Sugar, Water, Gelatin, Citric acid, Natural and artificial flavours, Pectin, Vegetable oil (highly refined coconut oil, canola oil), Modified food starch, Sodium citrate, Oil of orange, Orange juice, Citrus zest.”

Is it healthy you’ll ask? Heck no. Usually, sweet snacks and healthy don’t go together. See below:
