The gummi bear originated in Germany, where it is popular under the name  Gummibär (help·info) (rubber bear) or  Gummibärchen (help·info) (little rubber bear). Hans Riegel Sr., a candy maker from Bonn, started the Haribo company in 1920. In 1922, he invented the Dancing Bear, a fruit-flavored gum made in the shape of a bear. The success of the Dancing Bear's successor would later become Haribo's world-famous Gold-Bears candy product in 1967. Trolli is another gummi candy manufacturer and the first to introduce gummi worms in 1981. Gummi bears are also one of the few types of candy to have inspired a television show.
