Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Gumdrop Day

The origin of gumdrops is unclear, but they have been a popular treat for many centuries. Early versions of gumdrops were likely made with medicinal ingredients, including the sap of the gum arabic tree, which is where they get their name.

It is believed that gumdrops were first produced commercially in the United States in the late 19th century. The first patent for gumdrops was granted in 1869, and by the turn of the 20th century, gumdrops had become a popular candy in America.

Since then, gumdrops have evolved and come in a variety of flavors and shapes. They remain a popular treat to this day.
