Gummi Prices Soar

Apparently the price of glucose, the main ingredient in Gummi Bears, rose some 30% in 2006. Analysts claim that this is due in part to the increasing interest in bio fuels, which could raise food prices across the board as more land is diverted to grow crops for bio fuels instead of for food. This increase in the cost of glucose is threatening to raise the price of Gummi Bears. Haribo, the manufacturer of Gummi Bears is concerned that if the trend continues, Gummi Bears may become so expensive that they end up becoming a gourmet luxury food that only the rich can afford. Say it ain’t so hoe!
