You read that right – GUMMY BEARS! This easy recipe can be made with regular Cheerwine or Cheerwine Zero Sugar – as bears or any other fun shapes for all that Cheerwine gummy goodness. 


  • 1 cup Cheerwine or Cheerwine Zero Sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unflavored gelatin powder


Stovetop Method

In saucepot, heat Cheerwine until boiling. Remove from heat, add gelatin, then whisk to combine.

Microwave Method

In microwave-safe bowl, heat Cheerwine until boiling (about 3 minutes). Carefully remove from microwave, add gelatin, then whisk to combine. 

Using a candy syringe, fill silicone bear (or other shape) molds. Place in freezer overnight to fully set. Pop gummy bears out and store in airtight container.

Overall Rating:


  1. The second batch was much better. The first, I had to throw out. Sprinkling gelatin into hot liquid just made it clump together. I later read that you should put the gelatin in room temp. water/soda/juice for about 5 min. to help it dissolve better in the hot mixture.
