No alcohol gets people fired up — both in sheer glee and utter outrage — quite like Fireball, and after last year’s rosé gummy bears sparked a 1,000-person waitlist, it seemed like only a matter of time until someone combined the two. Well, that time has come.
Two Etsy companies have put their own twists on the booze-flavored gummy bear trend, offering a Fireball variety for cinnamon whiskey fanatics everywhere.
First up is Irish Confectionery Co.’s Fire Cubs. These gluten-free, handmade gelatin bears are spiked with Fireball and have a slight shimmer to them. The Dublin-based company ships internationally, selling the treats in bags of 100 at $5.79 a pack. One reviewer gave them three out of five stars, saying they had a “good, very cinnamon-tasting flavor.”
Irish Confectionery Co. also sells other boozy bears that come in flavors like mulled wine, rum, and orange creamsicle whiskey.
You can also score Fireball-flavored gummies from VineGelee on Etsy, a company in Denver, Colorado. Its version is called Fire Bears, which they offer in bags with customized labels, in case you want to spare people the tooth-shattering agony of Jordan almonds and hand out whisky gummies at your wedding or, hell, Nana’s 90th birthday.
These are sold by weight, varying from $10 for a 4-ounce bag to $22 for a full pound. And, like Irish Confectionery Co., VineGelee sells far more than just Fireball-flavored gummies. You can also get them in flavors like beer, Champagne, and rosé.
If you don’t have the patience to wait a few days for shipping, there’s always a third option: Buy regular gummy bears, soak them in Fireball for a few hours, then get your snack on. Just make sure you keep them out of kids’ reach.
