Fun Find: A New Form of Gummy Bears at Epcot

I have a bit of a gummy bear addiction.

During a Walt Disney World visit in December, I was distressed to find that the epic giant gummy bears had completely vanished from Epcot’s Germany pavilion. Yes, I know that they’re readily available elsewhere, but I found it comforting to walk by and admire their shiny, sugary smiles each time I walked the World Showcase.

RIP Giant Gummy Bears -- now no longer available in the Germany pavilion

Fast forward a few weeks later to another trip and another loop around the Showcase. Still no giant gummies, but in their place was a new product, Choco Gomis, a dual layer chocolate bar with embedded gummy bears. I had never seen anything as glorious as this, even on my recent trip to gummy-centric Germany.

Obviously this was a must purchase item.

I bought both the blue and pink packages, thinking that they were different flavors, but as it turns out, they were exactly the same.

Opening the wrapper reveals a thin sliver of milk chocolate, topped by a more substantial layer of white “yogurt” chocolate. Nestled in each square is one perfect glossy gummy bear.

For the amount of candy you get, the bars are a little pricey, but the OMIGOSH SO CUTE factor handily compensates. Seriously, I just wanted to stare at the gummy glory before digging in.

As for the taste, you really do get a yogurt tang. The white chocolate is a bit more sour than you’ll find in the United States. It’s not unpleasant, but perhaps not exactly what you’re expecting. The gummies themselves are firm and sweet, a nice counterbalance to the yogurt.

Despite the packaging and the near anime cuteness of the bar, this may be a treat that has a taste appeal more for adults than children. My kids thought they were fine, but not terrific, but I quite enjoyed the flavor.

So folks, will Choco Gomies be a part of your next Epcot adventure? Let us know in the comments below.
