Trivia: Where were gummy bears invented?

United States

Correct Answer: Germany

So why is this answer correct? : A German man named Hans Riegel, who happened to work at a confectionary factory, launched his own candy business in 1920. It was named “Haribo” — an amalgamation of his name and his hometown, Bonn. The hard candies sold moderately well, but Riegel truly hit the candy jackpot with soft, gelatin candies shaped like bears. The “dancing bears” were a hit, and over the next several years Haribo became a candy-producing powerhouse.
