I have always loved gumdrops since I was a kid. I still do! My favorite were those insanely delicious Brach's Mandarin Orange Slices gumdrops which you used to be able to buy individually in some grocery stores like penny candy. Who remembers that? That was my first official foray into all things gumdrops. My sister and I used to beg our mother to let us get a few pieces of candy and those orange slice gumdrops were always my top pick. Next was caramel but that's whole other recipe coming soon. We hope that you love this Valentine's Day Red Heart Gumdrops Recipe.
