Aren't they so cute? Those little bears dressed in sweet colors are a very fun treat. I like these because they don't pretend to be something that they are not, like "fruit snacks". These are candy, plain and simple.
What is in a gummy bear you wonder? Well, sugar or corn syrup, artificial color, gelatin, and that's about it. Some manufacturers have been adding vitamins to them, but I don't think they should ever be confused with a healthy food.
The problem with gummy bears is that they don't taste like much - unless you get the sour ones. You can go along eating them all day without really noticing you are eating them. Obviously, this is not good for your waistline.
