In 2003 Derek Lawson started his first candy store.  To set his new business apart from all others he created THE WORLD’S LARGEST GUMMY BEARS™.  From there, notoriety ensued, and his business began to grow considerably.

Today, his unique creations include: THE WORLD’S LARGEST GUMMY WORMS™, several GUMMY MEALS™ variations, GIANT GUMMY BEARS™, the EDIBLE PLAYABLE GUITAR™ and the world’s largest retail candy; THE PARTY PYTHON™… and many more novel candies! His creations and FOOD NETWORK appearances have earned him the moniker of THE GUMMY BEAR GUY™ and he is often referred to as “the real-life Willy Wonka”!

On the eve of the 15th anniversary of the GUMMY BEAR GUY’s first creations, we are happy to provide ALL of his original candy creations to a new audience of customers through our new-and-improved brick-&-mortar and online stores. Many others sell his creations around the world, however we are the ONLY AUTHORIZED SELLERS and will be listing original as well as ALL NEW future products – at the lowest prices – to you directly and efficiently.  Check-in often to see what’s new!

At TGBG™ we take pride in having superior customer service, and our handling time is typically between 1-2 days. We are always available through email, so if you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

You can visit us at our only brick-&-mortar store: “TGBG’s Candy Shop” when you are in Raleigh, NC.  You’ll always be a welcome visitor!
