Peas and Gummy Bears do the tango

WIKIPEDIA SAYS....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,[1] a fruit-flavored gum made in the shape of a bear.[2] The success of the Dancing Bear's successor would later become Haribo's world-famous Gold-Bears candy product in 1967.

Chris and I are 100% sure these are our kids but to turn down certain foods we've at times wondered. Sadie will hold the peas in the front of her mouth and chew on them for literally 10 minutes. Come to find out, Chris use to do the same thing! It's not usually habit that we have dessert after meals but this particular time I had, the one and only of course, HARIBO Gold Bears- my absolute favorite!
Although I hate to revert to spanking if they don't eat their veggies(mean mommy, I know) the Gummy Bears were a great motivation and as you can see no hesitation on throwin em back with the peas!
