Gummy Worm Soda

gummy worm soda recipe from cherryteacakes.com
Alright, this post is for the kids, the sad poor little kids who have to be forced back into little uniforms, or stiff uncomfortable desks, while grumpy teachers stare at them disapprovingly....I loved school. I really did. Elementary, junior high, high school, college, grad school, you name it, I loved it. Why? That's where my friends were! I saw school as seven hours a day where I got to see my friends. The classes and homework were just a side-note...during which I passed notes.

Some kids really hate school though. Compared to summer vacation, I can see that. It's significantly harder to put in quality swimming pool time with school getting in the way. For those kids, who are severely upset by the end of summer, I dedicate this Worm Soda.

Yes, Worm Soda.

Okay, so it's not the most appetizing name but what else can you call it? Now, the neat trick with this soda is, the longer you let the worms sit in the soda the more colorful it turns, and the more "giggly" and active the worms appear. Remember, my target audience is a five year old kid. While you're thinking "uck, giggly worm" that little kid is thinking "dude! awesome!" and planning how they can creep somebody out with it. Yep, if you aren't the parent of "that kid" you at least remember them from your own elementary school days. There may have been a pulled pigtails moment in conjunction.

As for the taste, yes, it tastes exactly like a gummy worm. What else can it taste like? The ingredients are soda water, sugar and gummy worms! Welcome back to school, kids. Here's a kiddy mocktail to take the edge off!

Gummy Worm Soda

4 gummy worms

Mix it all together and drink. :)
