In honour ofNational Gummi Worm Day, here is today's sweet fun fact!  

Did you know that...

“The elder Hans Riegel started an autumn tradition in the 1930s whereby children could come to his factory bearing acorns and chestnuts that would be exchanged for some sweets. Today the event is held in late October/early November at Haribo’s Bonn HQ, and the collected nuts go to feed animals in wildlife sanctuaries. Folks stand in line for hours with giant bags of acorns and/or chestnuts and go home with boxes of free Haribo treats. Ten kilos of chestnuts or 5 kilos of acorns will land you a bag of goldbären (a.k.a. gold-bears).” (Marshall, 2022)
