The vast and varied world of gummy candy has taken a leap no-one could have anticipated.
I'm talking, of course, about the invention of the gummy pickle.
Carry on scrolling to see this bizarre creation for yourself, and the other gummy inventions that have tempted us...
Candy is great right?Whoever first invented the chewy, sweet goodness of gummy candies has made a lot of people...and dentists very happy.
A meal replacement?As much as we love candy, it can be hard to justify replacing an actual meal for the likes of jelly beans and gummy bears.
But as adults, we can do what we want.But that doesn't mean we won't be judged for it. I mean, if I came to the office with a lunchbox full of Swedish Fish and Red Vines, eyebrows definitely would be raised.

What will they think of next?There's clearly no end to the possibilities in the gummy candy game.
But what if...What if you could combine the squidgy sweet goodness of gummy candy with the sour, savory taste of a pickled gherkin?
Sound good?Of course, this sweet treat isn't for everyone... I mean there are plenty of people out there who would much sooner keep their pickles hard and crunchy and their gummy candies sweet and chewy.
But for pickle lovers...

There have been other pickle hybrids on the market...Frankly, I'm not terribly keen to try a pickle wrapped in cotton candy but I'm sure it's quite something.
Can you improve on the original recipe?A pickle is and a pickle will always be a top tier crunchy snack that serves multiple purposes in the culinary field. That being said, can it really fit in the world of sweet treats?
Pickle flavored candy canes.

"Can I get the gummy crust, please?"
What a world we live in!
This leads us to the treat of the moment...
The texture is distinctly like a gummy candy.
