Help with gummy flavor fading

Hey all. I nake a batch of gummies, then dry them. They smell and taste delicious. Then I bag then in 1 gallon bags for storage. After that they taste like the flavor has faded out, and I taste more plain gelatin and they make me gag. I have tried using flavoring oil, jolly rancher gelatin and drink mixes, and they all do the same thing. Any suggestions.

That will definitely improve things significantly. Malic acid too. Combo of the two will be a lot more consistent with what people expect in a store bought gummy candy.

I can’t even imagine a candy without one of the two as they’re in every major brand I can think of. Sometimes fumaric acid but that’s a bit more advanced.


I’ve made gummi’s with jello powder in the past and they were amazing, albeit extremely sticky.
