The History List

Presidential Gummies — Sold out!

Regular price $ 1.99 USD
Regular price Sale price $ 1.99 USD
Sale Sold out
Updated April 2, 2022: For those of you wondering if, because these were only available on April 1, this was an April Fools joke, you were right. And apparently we made this a little too realistic because we had a lot of folks sign up for them. Then again, if I had seen this, even if I'd have thought that it might be April Fools, I would have signed up. After all, they were only $1.99, so what if they're real. That would have been so cool.

And to anyone who had their heart setting on eating all 45 presidents, my apologies.

P.S. We are already working on ideas for next year.  

I found these at my local supermarket this morning.  Have you ever seen these?  They were completely new to me—and they are on sale today only (April 1).

How to get your own pack
These are so fun and unusual that I wanted to make them available, but I have no idea of what kind of interest there will be, so here's what we came up with:  If you want one of these packs of Presidential Gummies, put your e-mail address in the box above. (One pack per person.) Normally we use these to notify people when a product is back in stock.  In this case, however, we're using this to determine how many I should buy.  I’ve already worked this out with the store manager.  I’m going to go back to the store and buy before they close, so you need to sign up before 10 pm (Eastern) Friday, April 1.

Then within 24 hours we’ll notify you if we have a pack for you.  We’ll do this based on the order in which people signed up, so you'll want to sign up now to give yourself the best chance in case we have more requests than they have stock.

I’m optimistic that they have enough on hand, but there’s no guarantee.  
The 45 Presidential Gummies inside every pack

The package promises that there are 45 inside and they are to scale, and indeed they are!  Do you see the part of the package that is bulging out a little?  That’s President Taft.  And the longer, straight part?  President Lincoln.  President Madison is in there, too, but that one is small so you’ll have to look closely. “Exact shape” is a little bit of an exaggeration since they come out of candy molds so they are rounded off somewhat.  

They are in several fruit flavors, including Pineapple, Cherry (Washington!  Hah!) raspberry, strawberry, and lemon, among others. (Andrew Johnson is lemon-flavored. They must have someone in the plant who knows a little about history.)

Looking forward to seeing how many people sign up.  
And once you do, look for an e-mail message from us within 24 hours.

P.S. I would love to see someone post a photo of all of them in order.  (You’ll have to leave a space for Cleveland’s second term since he’s only in the bag once.)  Post with the hashtag #presidentialgummies, and if we use your post, we’ll send you a second bag!
