Gummy bears


Hans Riegel, the man behind Germany's Haribo confectionery and much-loved gummy bears, has died aged 90 from heart failure, his office said October 15, 2013. Riegel spent almost 70 years at the helm of Haribo, short for Hans Riegel Bonn, which was founded by his candymaker father in 1920. From a small firm struggling with the shortages of post-war Germany, he built it into a world famous brand exporting to 100 countries. REUTERS/Ina Fassbender/Files
