Haribo, the company that would go on to create its iconic gummy bears, was also founded in 1920.

The candy company was created by Hans Riegel on December 13, 1920 in Bonn, Germany. The company’s name, Haribo, comes from the first two letters of his first and last name, plus the first two letters of Bonn.

Two years later, Riegel created the first gummy bear, originally called the Dancing Bear.
