Carmine red is mostly derived from the carmine beetle

I love gummy bears and after the I found out about this, every time I saw gummy bear candies, my mind automatically associates it with beetles. I can't imagine eating those adorable beetles. 😅

Though, I think it is far better than synthesized carmine red which is carcinogenic. 😩



I'd prefer red gummies than anything yellow and white now, honestly 😂😂 at least the synthetic red takes a while to hit

LOL. 😅
