Pour the gelatin of your choice (Knox or Vital Proteins Gelatin) into one of the bowls along with the Sunkist Pineapple drink mix packets. Gently stir the powdered mixture together.
Next, prepare your gummy bear molds for pouring these pineapple gummy bears. You can have your squeezer ready to use, but the molds I used are large enough for you to actually pour the mixture.
Now, add at least half the water into the empty bowl and microwave for 15 - 20 seconds until the water is hot. Carefully remove the water from microwave.
Add the remaining half of the room temperature water to the powdered drink mix and gelatin mixture. Then, stir it quickly but gently as the mixture will start to set quickly.
Once the mixture is blended evenly into a paste-like mixture, pour the hot water over the paste and stir until a thin syrup-like mixture has formed. If needed, microwave for another 15 seconds to thin the mixture and to remove any clumps.
Now you can fill the molds by pouring the mixture or using a squeezer. Refrigerate for about 20 minutes until the gummy bears are firm.
After the gummy bears set, unmold the gummies and enjoy!
You can store the extra gummy bears in the refrigerator for a few days.
