Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Love 'em or hate 'em!

Gummy worms fall in one of two categories...love 'em or hate 'em! Kids love 'em for sure, so does that mean the adults hate 'em? For some, yes; for others, definitely no! They are sweet, they are chewy, but they notoriously stick to your teeth! A bigger question might be "What makes sugar, gelatin and flavorful 'worms' so irresistible, especially for kids?" The truth is...
Gummy candy superstar Trolli was the first to develop the gummy worm, which happened in the early 1980s. Trolli’s idea was built on traditional American marketing values: making something gross enough looking to shock parents and simultaneously attract children. [Source: Huffington Post]
