There are fruit gumdrops and spice gumdrops. I prefer the fruit, and especially the RED!
The gumdrop was first invented in the 1920s and sold as Jujebes and Jujyfruit. Most gumdrops are sold at movie theaters in the form of Dots. Dots were introduced in 1945. Tootsie Roll Industry has introduced a variety of Dots products in the last 10 years. Tropical Dots were released in 2003, Yoghurt Dots in 2007, and Sour Dots in 2009. Another type of gumdrop that has gained precedence has been the spiced gumdrop. The color of gumdrop often indicates the flavor of the candy.
