AFTER WATCHING HOW GUMMY CANDIES ARE REALLY MADE, YOU’LL NEVER EAT THEM AGAIN (DISTURBING & GRAPHIC)
If gummy bears, peach rings and gummy worms were among your favorite sweet treats as a kid, and perhaps even now, it may be hard for you to watch how they’re actually made.
Belgian filmmaker Alina Kneepkens created the
horror movie short film below that shows ― in grim detail ― the way many gummy candies are made. Kneepkens unrolls the footage in reverse, starting with the finished candy before revealing its gory inception.
“I got the assignment to direct some reversed audiovisual stories showing the production of some of our food. I saw quite a few slaughter houses and examples of both industrial and artisan food production. A true eye opener,” Kneepkens states on her website regarding the grim yet eye-opening video series. “‘Jelly’ is candy. But only few people know they’re made of gelatin from the skin of pigs. Sweet?” she concludes above her video of the creation of gummy candies.
