Sour Gummy Sweets

These sour gummy sweets do not keep well so I suggest making them a day  or two before you want to use them. I made nice large ones as a treat but it you have a smaller silicone mould you can reduce the size and use them to decorate cupcakes, or serve for a children’s birthday party.

Is there anything you do that is so habitual you do it subconsciously? Mine is checking my watch during certain activities. For years I did not wear one as I had travelled to Australia and did not want to suffer from jetlag. I can tell you that taking it off for my trip worked like a charm. But, in 2015 I decided to get a fitness tracker. Not to see how many steps I was taking, but to monitor my sleep. I found the training side of it so useful that I upgraded in 2016 when we met Mark in Holland to go barging. During hard lock down I dropped my Polar Fitness Tracker and it stopped charging. I decided to upgrade to something that looked more like a watch than a utility tool. Enter the Polar Ignite, a round face watch, with lovely wrist straps.

I have bought two gem encrusted ones to wear when going out, at some expense. And I have been using the heart rate monitor to see if something my Doctor said had any bearing. But one Wednesday night at the end of November it stopped working. I am not sure what I was more upset about? The fact that my daily calorie count was not being calculated, or that my sleep was not being monitored. But what I discovered was how often I check my watch. And my wrist is not being helpful at all. When I bought the Ignite, the upgrade model became available a few months later which was a bit upsetting. And when mine stopped working, the newest one was expected some time in December. So I had to debate waiting and being watch free, or settling for the Ignite 2 and being able to tell time.

  1. so did you buy a new one? Sadly i am not a fan of gelatine so i tend not to make anything which requires it. I like the idea of using fresh raspberries tho!

  2. I’ve got a fitness tracker that I need to get into the habit of using. Your sweets look like fun and quite delicious. No kids around here sadly so I don’t make them anymore

  3. Hi Tandy, I have never worn a watch. If I need the time, I get it from my computer or my cell phone. Despite not wearing a watch, I am never free of the clock. No escape for the wicked (haha). Thanks for this recipe.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
