Nautilus Launches the "Gummy Bear Golden Raisin"

STUTTGART, Germany - July 29, 2022 - PRLog -- Due to the shortage of Sun-Maid's Golden Raisins a German food laboratory has developed a Gummy Bear Golden Raisin. The gummy bear is in the shape and color of a Californian grown Golden Raisin, but is made of the same ingredients as fruit-flavored gummy bears, including white grape juice concentrate. In 2022, there will be several shortages of some products that we all use. The most notable this year has been the baby formula storage. It all started with toilet paper, then meat, ketchup, bottled water, and now Sriracha shortages. California's severe drought has led to the absurdly high-cost of Californian grown golden raisins. In addition, kids are just saying "no thanks" to the iconic Halloween boxes of Sun-Maid's Golden Raisins. Hershey warns it won't be able to meet demand for Halloween candy.

Richard H. Davis, President and CEO of Nautilus GmbH Laboratoriumsbedarf & Co. KG., states that his company intends to produce and market the Gummy Bear Golden Raisin.

"Gummy bears are relatively cheap to make compared to the cost of growing grapes and then sun drying them to make raisins," said Davis. "No one can match our unique gummy bear shape and color that mimics the elusive Californian golden raisin," noted Davis.

The gummy bear originated in Germany, where it is popular under the name Gummibär or Gummibärchen. Gum arabic was the original base ingredient used to produce the gummy bears, hence the name gum or gummy. Hans Riegel Sr., a confectioner from Bonn, started the Haribo company in 1920. In 1922, inspired by the trained bears seen at street festivities and markets in Europe through to the 19th century, he invented the Dancing Bear (Tanzbär), a small, affordable, fruit-flavored gum candy treat for children and adults alike, which was much larger in form than its later successor, the Gold-Bear or Goldbär. The name "Haribo" is a syllabic abbreviation formed from Hans Riegel Bonn. HARIBO is celebrating its 100th birthday.
