We are all aware of the candy gummy bear. It’s a translucent, gelatin-like chewy candy shaped like a bear that comes in different colors. Kids—and adults alike—like eating gummy bears. Even some pharmaceutical companies used gummy bears as their form of multivitamins for kids since kids do not like the look and taste of the usual multivitamins.

But…have you seen a giant gummy bear? Yes I did, when I watched the movie, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” haha. The giant gummy bears in the movie became the defender of FLDSMDFR, the machine that makes all food gigantic in Swallow Falls.

Kidding aside, there’s a local business here in the Philippines that actually sells giant gummy bears, around 6 inches in height and 4 inches in width and weighs almost two pounds (1.9lbs.). The giant gummy bear is equivalent to 350 pieces of regular sized gummy bears. This is also equivalent to 18 servings at 50 grams per serving.

The giant gummy bears are made by BearyGummy, a 3-month old business based in Navotas City. The owner, Joe Ren Mendoza, said that he considers this as a hobby more than a business. It closely follows the recipe of the international gummy bear maker Haribo Brand. The owner spent a lot of time perfecting the recipe to adapt to the Philippines’ tropical climate. Current flavors that they offer are lemon, blueberry, strawberry, melon, raspberry, green apple, cola, and rum.

The giant gummy bears are made-to-order. Giant gummy bears are only made once the order is confirmed to make sure that the customer will get a freshly made gummy bear every time. The customer can expect to receive their giant gummy bear in 2-3 days. Customers can also request for customization of their gummy bears, from change of color to variation in flavorings. Sometimes, they do allow the addition of Ascorbic Acid to make their gummy bears a little bit sour, and at the same time, it’s a good source of Vitamin C.
