Chocolate-Covered Gummy Bears

You read that right, but I’ll go over it again: Chocolate. Covered. Gummie. Bears.

Two quick asides before we get to the aforementioned bears:

#1) I grew up in West Texas with a German-born mother, whose family sent us packages of the original Haribo Gummie Bears when I was a kid.  No one else knew what they were. No one else knew what they were missing. We looked forward to the packages and coveted those delicious foreign bears.

#2) Because the originals were from Germany, and because German was my mother’s native tongue, we pronounced them Germanically.  Not G-uh-mmie Bears, as Americans say, but G-eww-mmie Bears. To this day I pronounce them with a German tongue, to the eye-rolls of most everyone else who was late to the Gummie Bear party.  Woe to the soul who assumes to correct me.

Well, maybe not whoa to them, but they really should prepare themselves for an annoying back story and a smug smirk when I’m done.

Back to Chocolate. Covered. Gummie. Bears.

Chocolate-covered Gummie Bear

Oh my, is that Gummie flirting with us?!

Where the heck did I find him?

Sadly for me, before I ever thought to check online for such deliciousness, I bought them at a specialty grocery store.  Wanna see how much I was taken for?  Sure you Do!

$10 A POUND!  In my defense, they are worth every penny.  Ask Girl, she’ll testify.

Mostly, I eat them when I’m in the throes of training for a marathon (half or full).  It’s only during those training months that I feel I can eat anything I want, and I want CHOCOLATE-COVERED GUMMIE BEARS!  So good.

As soon as Sweet E is able to eat gummie anythings, he’ll be getting packages of these just like I got packages of the originals.

I know, now you want them too.  Never fear!  I’m here to help.  I checked around and we can buy the same exact brand of bears online for only $6.99  pound!

While these are not Haribo bears, they are as addictive. Trust Mrs. Tucker.

When you buy a pound for the kiddies, make sure and buy a pound for yourself…cause you’re not going to want to share.

  1. Did i introduce you to choco covered gummie bears or did you find them on your own? I have been eating them since before we lived in Ohio (almost 7 years ago).

    • Mrs. Tucker says:

      It was either you or Boy/Girl. Either way, OMT! lurvs them! (are you as shocked as I am we can order online for that much of a discount?!)

  2. I think I am the only person I know who doesn’t like Gummie Bears… but we knew I was weird.

    • Mrs. Tucker says:

      I’m a Gummie Bear snob. I’m not fond of the knock-offs and prefer the Haribo brand. They’re a bit harder. LOVE THEM!

  3. Hi! Hopping through the Chicken Chick blog hop. Chocolate covered gummi bears has been an all time favorite candy for me, but not easy to find, or like you said when found it’s too expensive. Good to know Amazon has it cheaper. I was actually thinking of attempting to make my own. I am not much of a cook/baker, but how hard could it be to drunk gummi bears into melted chocolate and then let them set? Already a follower 🙂

    • Mrs. Tucker says:

      I once thought about dipping them myself, but the picture in my head is a mess. Better for me to buy them. Thanks for following and stopping by!

      • I actually tried it yesterday, not too bad, just a little time consuming but very worth it. I will blog about it at some point and will link back to this post since this is what inspired me to try it 🙂

  4. My grandsons would love these, no matter how they might be pronounced. Pretty sure I would, too. Yummy! Yewwmie! Yeah!

  5. YUM! Hopping over from Happy Day linky party.

  6. THESE are my absolutely fav!! My mom use to buy them when I was young and I so can’t just stop at one handful. LOL

    I have found them in the bulk section at Winco for $5.99 a lb. They are so worth it. YUMMY 🙂

  7. oh wow! I’ve never seen those… they look amazing! Came over from What Shakin… I blog at nap-timecreations.com… would love to have you stop by.

  8. Molly B says:

    we make them at home several times a year. . .dip them in melted ghiradelli milk chocolate. It takes a while but they are SOOOOOOOOOOOOO good (and much cheaper)
    also, they don’t look quite as pretty as the pre-made ones but I think they taste better. you should try it! : 0

    • Mrs. Tucker says:

      If I made them at home, I envision me with a stomach-ache for my lack of self-control! Maybe one day…

  9. Now here’s an idea I’ve never thought of! I’ve got to give these a try some day. When there is someone else around to make me feel self conscious about how many I’m eating so maybe I can stop…

  10. Never heard of these. I can imagine they are quite good. Thanks for joining us at the Let’s Get Social Sunday link party. Have a wonderful Sunday 🙂

  11. Wow, that’s different. I’m sure my son would love those! Found you on Let’s get social Sunday! Newest follower 🙂 You can find me painting, decorating and baking at hickorytrailblog.blogspot.com

  12. I’ve never thought of chocolate covered gummy bears! I’m stopping by from the blog hop and I hope your having a great weekend!

  13. Yum!! If you live near a WinCo grocery store, they sell them there in bulk for a few dollars a lb. I love the chocolate covered cinnamon bears, too!

  14. Thanks, Mrs. Tucker! As if…
