Drunken Gummy Bears. Partying To New Music From Pirate Sons.

Drunken Gummy Bears

Q: What do you call a bear without teeth?

A: A gummy bear.

Drunken Gummy Bears.

I saw these on Pinterest and burst out laughing.

Vodka soaked gummies. What a fun idea.

Turns out, as I searched around the internet, people are throwing all sorts of candy into alcohol. I saw Negroni bears, Rum & Cola gummies, Tequila Raspberry bears, and Absinthe gummy bears here. There were some soaked gummy worms here and vodka soaked Life Saver gummies here.

I read on some sites where people had problems with the bears turning into a gelatinous mess. I’m not sure if it was the type or grade of alcohol used, but I did not encounter any difficulties with that. My bears swelled up and kept their shape.

It has been longer than one week of soaking and I have a festive bunch of completely inebriated bears hanging in the fridge for when I need a quick little nip.
