Are Trolli Gummies Playing Hide and Seek?

Trolli! Trolli gummies! Come out, come out, wherever you are! Find yourself searching high and low for your favorite Trolli gummies? Fret not, fellow gummy guru! I got the candy scoop on where they’re hiding. The good news? They haven’t gone away, and I doubt they’ll become harder to find in any way. They’re the creme de la creme of the gummy circuit, and unlike a hit TV show or popular rock band, there’s no benefit in quitting while you’re ahead. No, contrary to slipping into obscurity, they caught the eye of the Ferrara Candy Company, who loved them so much they bought ’em up! While we have to agree that buying Trolli was a very, very smart move, we don’t think it was such a bright idea to change the name of Trolli gummies to Ferrara. Nope, not at all.

Now, you might be thinking, “But Trollis never disappeared from my candy and grocery store shelves!” If that’s the case, there’s a good reason. When Ferrara changed the name on the package of Trolli gummies to their own, they saw sales fall faster than a glass of red wine headed for a white carpet. They had kept the same recipe luckily, so once some people tried them they realized they were the same. But when we go to the store looking for Trolli and see Ferrara, the natural inclination is to assume it’s a different candy. Soooo…Ferrara is switching back to the Trolli name! In fact, I’m fairly certain they already have. But I just wanted to let you all know that if you happen by a candy counter with Ferrara gummies that look just like your favorite Trolli gummies, you can buy them with confidence.

P.S. On a related note, while I do agree that Fun Dip is indeed fun to dip, I still think Lik-m-aid was a better name! It’s been years, but it still irks me. But as long as I still get to eat it I won’t split hairs. I guess 🙂
