RE: "Real" gummis
Do you remember from what company?
My 2 fav's are Haribo & Trolli (Not the US version either)
Trolli has a better *BAM* of flavor than Haribo, but Haribo's flavors are more distinct.
I have ordered directly from Haribo's candy store (so to get the good German ones)
I could eat a whole big bag of them.
In 2002, I smuggled back 10 lbs of Haribo Gummi Bears from Munich. Hmmmmmmmm
