Many of us grew up enjoying gummy bears and gummy worms, and for some of us,
they're still a favorite treat - if that's you, we warn you that you may want to stop

If you’ve ever had a vegetarian friend turn down a fruit snack or cup of Jello,

Gelatin is a gelling agent. It's a yellowish, odorless, and nearly tasteless substance
that's made by prolonged boiling of skin, cartilage, and bones from animals.
