Orange Creamsicle Gummies

Man, I didn’t mean to disappear on you guys. I’ve just been spending some much needed time these past few weeks with family, friends and my awesome husband, as well as just taking some time for myself. I was all over the place, driving from Texas to Washington to Oregon, back to Washington, to California, and then home to Texas.

And now that I’m back home I’m not sure exactly how to feel about it. While it’s nice to be back in my own space (and my own bed) it’s taking a little bit for this place to feel like home again. Maybe that sounds crazy since I’ve lived here for over two years now. But home for me has never been about a place but about the people, and I just got done spending the last five weeks with the people I love most in this world. And while our house in Texas feels like home when my husband is around, I know he will be leaving again soon as he always does and then it will just be me and the pups again.

I know I’ll toughen up and make the most of it as I always do, there’s really not much else to do as a military spouse, but right now I’m coming off of a family high and being alone just doesn’t sound like much fun.

What does sound like fun is eating a bunch of these gummies. What’s more fun than Orange Creamsicle Gummies? Absolutely nothing! (At least when it comes to food anyway.) These little bad boys are packed with gut healing goodness in the form of gelatin and healthy fats in the form of coconut milk. And they’re super delicious even the kids will like them! Well at least I’m pretty sure they would. I haven’t actually tested it since, you know, I don’t have kids and stuff. But my mom really liked them. Does that count?

    Oh goodness, these look amazing. Between these and your other gummies, I think I have a lot of recipes to try as soon as I order some gelatin! :)

    And I totally get the loneliness thing. I think that can be the hardest thing about being a mil-spouse, besides the missing. :/

      Ya… the missing part isn’t fun either! It’s not an easy life is it? But worth it for the men we love! And you totally need to order some gelatin! Minus the fact that it’s super nutritious, homemade gummies will change your life 😉

      Yes they do! If they are kept at higher temperatures for too long they will melt. They should be fine for a few hours if you wanted to take them with you as a snack or something as long as they weren’t in direct heat.
