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.
Lori: What is a gumdrop?
Gil Gummi: What a good question! A gumdrop is a jellied candy coated with sugar.
Dane: Who invented gumdrops?
Gil Gummi: No one really knows. A candy maker probably made the first gumdrops.
Eva: Is Gumdrop Day always on February 15?
Gil Gummi: Yes, it is.
Andi: Where were gumdrops first made?
Gil Gummi: We don't know for sure. Most people think they were first made in Germany, though.
