Rejoice, fellow sweet tooth humans! Gummy worms are actually good for your health!

Now, before you burst through the door and start panic buying all the gummy worms at the nearest supermarket, there is a fine print to this sweet revelation: those aren’t the ones we’re talking about. The healthy gummy worms we’re referring to aren’t the ones that have been engineered out of corn syrup, sucrose, and artificial food coloring. Luckily, their healthy counterparts are easy to make by yourself! All you need is organic gelatin and powdered vitamin C. Pour it into a worm-shaped silicone mold, and you’ll soon have yourself some guilt-free candy that will prevent the formation of wrinkles, mend hormonal imbalances, soothe belly aches, and battle acne.
