Apocalypse Now: Gummy Bear Bratwursts


Nope, that’s not a misprint. Apparently the demand for sausage made with gummy bears is actually a real thing and it’s spreading across the United States. Bratwurst, as we all know, is made from the finest cuts of beef, pork and veal. Gummi Bears, on the other hand, are sugar incarnate.


Spencer Grundhofer, owner of Grundhofer’s Old-Fashioned Meats, located in Minnesota, came up with the idea of gummy bear bratwurst initially as a joke. A friend of his suggested that he make a flavored bratwurst using gummi bears. The joke took a life of its own, however, demand for the crazy combination began to grow once folks discovered they actually tasted good.

Is this old news? For reals? I have never in my life heard of this shit before. I have so many questions. Would I get the same effect if I grilled brats and ate a couple of gummi bears with each piece I ate? Is there a type of gummi bear that pairs best with the porky brat? Is this all a horrible dream? I won’t knock it til I try it I guess
