Usually the gumdrop is popular at Christmas when gingerbread houses need roofing. But after December, they are not given much notice.
So sad, since February 15th is National Gumdrop Day.
The little guys are so colorful and friendly, not to mention sugary, one would think they would be more popular. Lollipops get the “Good Ship” and other songs, candy corn gets Halloween, nasty Peeps have Easter and candy hearts get Valentine’s Day, so gumdrops need an occasion, not just a cookie house.
Brainstorming a better future for the gumdrop has been a failure here at The Daily Cupcake. Really.
Gumdrops and beer for St. Patrick’s Day? Ick. Nothing says Memorial Day like a jar of gumdrops? Um, no.
Yeah. We’ll keep working on it.
For now, give a gumdrop a little love. Happy National Gumdrop Day.
