Who doesn’t love gummy bears? Those cute colourful little bears can put a smile on anyone’s face! It’s really no surprise that gummy bears are one of the world’s most popular candies. We are so excited to have another delicious vegan candy to offer. We now have our Vegan Bears available to order.
Our Vegan Bears use Pectin instead of Gelatin to give our Vegan Bears their chewy texture. Pectin is a water-soluble fibre located in the cellular walls of fruit. Apples, grapes, cherries and citrus fruits like lemons and grapefruit have a high concentration of pectin. This makes it perfect for a plant-based snack. Here at Westpoint, we believe that all natural ingredients and colours are the way to go! Our Vegan Bears are made with natural colouring like Turmeric and Paprika.
Fun ways to use Vegan Bears at home
- Mix together Vegan Bears, Popcorn and chocolate chips for a sweet and salty movie-night snack
- Freeze Vegan Bears in your favourite fruit juice to make refreshing popsicles.
- Use our Vegan Bears to decorate cakes, cookies and cupcakes for a fun surprise!
- Melt Chocolate Chips and top with our Vegan Bears. Allow chocolate to firm up before breaking into pieces for a fun chocolate bark snack.
- Reward with Vegan Bears. If you’re having a hard time getting through a recipe or tasks in the kitchen, put a gummy next to each task. A fun way to get through the list with your kids.
We love this recipe for Piñata cake because it uses different ingredients and many different measurements. Baking is actually a lot about science, so you could take the opportunity to talk to your kids about science and what happens when baking like the heating process, the different chemical reactions, and why it’s so important to measure correctly.
One of the best possible outcomes of cooking and baking with kids is to increase their food tastes and preferences. If your kids cook or bake the food they are definitely more likely to try it and be interested in trying it, especially when it is covered in gummy bears!
