How do Food, Fun and Art Go Together?

Brand New Sugar Free Gummi Bears
Growing up, Mom could make anything fun either by telling stories, singing, or making work (or play) into little games. I caught the ” fun bug” too.
Just the other night I was at a little boy’s house. He was resisting bed time. He didn’t want to miss all the fun. My “fun bug” kicked in and we piggy backed all the way to bed. He even went – willingly.
Apparently the “fun bug” is easily caught. One day I went into the packaging area here and saw this. Someone was turning work into fun! That’s what I call “Food Art!”

Sweetened with fruit juices. Bonus of prebiotic fiber and no artificial color!
