As many of us are experiencing harsh cold and snowy winter storms, there is one place that many people escape to during these times. Florida! The “Sunshine State” has often been a place where many people from colder climates travel to so they can enjoy warmer weather, sandy beaches, beautiful scenery, and amazing wildlife!
Land Of The Gummies wants to take you with us down to Florida where we are going to explore some of the things that make Florida great, and how our delicious gummies may come into play.
Did you know that Florida is the home of the American Crocodile? Alligators are usually the reptile that comes to mind when people think of Florida, but the American Crocodile can be found here as well! As a matter of fact, Florida is one of the ONLY places in the entire world where Crocodiles and Alligators coexist! Throughout various parts of southern Florida, crocodiles can be found basking in the sunlight trying to warm their bodies. These magnificent creatures are reclusive in nature. While they may have grown accustomed to people, they should never be fed as they fend for themselves quite well.
If you want to get up close and personal with a Crocodile, you should try our delicious Gummy Crocodiles! With a mouthwatering green apple flavor and white foam bottom, these gummies are a great treat for anyone curious about Crocodiles.
Sea Turtles are another animal you will commonly find in Florida. Various types of Sea Turtles call Florida their home including Loggerhead Turtles, Green Turtles, Kemp’s Ridley Turtles, Hawksbill Turtles, and Leatherback Turtles. While they can mostly be seen in the summer months during nesting season, Sea Turtles will come and go to Florida as they are transient creatures and travel more often than you think.
The best places to find Sea Turtles are at beaches, parks, or wildlife reserves throughout Florida. The best places to go are Melbourne Beach, Vero Beach, The Florida Keys, Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge, The Sea Turtle Preservation Society, Sebastian Inlet State Park, and Dry Tortugas National Park.
You can also get some tasty turtles right here at Land Of The Gummies! Our Assorted Gummy Turtles are just as varied as the different Sea Turtles in Florida and are packed with flavor and a soft yet chewy bite!
Another great find at Florida beaches is Starfish! Starfish can be found at nearly every beach in Florida! These gentle beings are usually hiding from predators, so they can be difficult to find at first. Many of them will be in between sandbars, down on the sand surface. Starfish will try to blend in, when possible, by burying themselves just below the surface of the sand. As water and waves move sand around, you may get a glimpse of one of their arms sticking out. The other place where Starfish will hide is in rocky areas around beaches. Starfish can wriggle their way under rocks, so they remain hidden. They mainly feed on mollusks and crustaceans that they find in their environment.
You can feed on some of our delicious Multi-Color Gummy Starfish! These delectable treats are either cherry red or citrus orange flavored and have creamy swirls of yellow and green that you can’t miss! Textured with bumps that create a unique mouthfeel, these Starfish are modeled to look and feel like the real thing!
Since Florida has a relatively warm temperature throughout the year, it is always a good time for ice cream! Ice cream has always been a favorite treat to beat the heat and Florida has more ice cream shops than you can ever visit in one trip! Cool, creamy, delicious, and sweet are just a few of the words that come to mind when we think about ice cream.
Of course, we would not be bringing up ice cream if we did not have a gummy treat to talk about too! Our Gummy Ice Cream Cone will whisk you away to memories as a child at your local ice cream shop. Modeled to look like a sugar cone with tasty soft-serve or hand-dipped ice cream, these gummies fit right in with our theme today. Coming in strawberry, vanilla, and mint varieties, there is a flavor for everyone!
Of course, we had to close out our list today with one of the most talked-about things in Florida. Sharks! Florida has a massive variety of sharks that call their waters home. There are about nine sharks that are commonly seen in Florida waters with another seven that may be seen from time to time. There are more shark sightings in Florida than in any other state in the country. On the list of the counties in the United States with the most shark attacks ever recorded, seven out of ten on the list are in Florida! While this seems like a staggering number, you should not let this deter you from visiting Florida. The likelihood of you being attacked is pretty low. Only forty attacks on average happen every year.
But if you want to turn the tables, Land Of The Gummies has the gummy candy that is right for you. Our Assorted Shark With Foam Bottom gummies turns you into the predator and the shark into the prey! With a selection of flavors that include lemon yellow, blue raspberry, lime green, and cherry red, you will have a feeding frenzy when you get your hands on these!
Land Of The Gummies has a wide range of products that can be connected to so many different themes, holidays, and places. With a little creativity and some much-needed taste testing, you can be sure to find a gummy candy to go along with almost any occasion. Check out our entire line of products here.
