I love gummy bears! Unfortunately, my daughter is not fond of eating it. She just likes looking at at and squishing it. During the Work-at-Home Expo 2015, I came across Giant Gummy Bears! It was so cute that I decided to buy one to give as a gift for my daughter’s classmate who was turning 3 that week.
This Giant Gummy Bear is from a company called BearyGummy. BearyGummy is a 3 months old business (as of this writing). According to the owners, they consider it to be a hobby and not as a business. The owners then add that it closely follows the recipe of the international gummy bear maker Haribo Brand, where they spent a lot of time doing trial-and-errors on the recipe to adopt it to our tropical climate.
For this pretty young company, it’s amazing that they have already been featured in Unang Hirit, and supported a few causes from student councils from schools such as Philippine Christian University, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, and San Beda College, not to mention the Junior Marketing Achievement Society of the Philippines and of course, Manila Workshops‘ Work at Home Expo 2015.
Like most of the new businesses I know, orders are accepted currently via their online Facebook Store and delivers anywhere in Metro Manila. But they have plans to cater to customers all over the Philippines. BearyGummy ingredients are sourced from an established local food supplier here in the Philippines and some of our wonderful flavorings came from the states. They also handmade the mold they are using for their bears from food-grade silicone rubber. Except for a few cases, they use sustainable materials for our packaging as much as possible.
All Giant Gummy Bears are made-to-order. They only make the bears once the order is confirmed to make sure that the customer will get a freshly made gummy bear every time. Once order is confirmed, the customer can expect to receive their bear in 2-3 days. Another nice thing to note is that the homemade gummy bears are actually customizable. From change of color to variation in flavorings, they accept requests to make the bear more personalized. For some of the orders, they allow the addition of Ascorbic Acid to make the bears more sour and at the same time, it’s a good source of Vitamin C.
