Gumdrop Q & A
By Kathleen W. Redman
1 Gil Gummi: Good afternoon, children. I am Gil Gummi of the Yummi Gummi Gumdrop Company. I am glad to be here at your school. Since today is Gumdrop Day, I thought you might like to ask some questions about gumdrops.
2 Lori: What is a gumdrop?
3 Gil Gummi: What a good question! A gumdrop is a jellied candy coated with sugar.
4 Dane: Who invented gumdrops?
5 Gil Gummi: No one really knows. A candy maker probably made the first gumdrops.
6 Eva: Is Gumdrop Day always on February 15?
7 Gil Gummi: Yes, it is.
8 Andi: Where were gumdrops first made?
9 Gil Gummi: We don't know for sure. Most people think they were first made in Germany, though.
