They are extremely popular in Ireland and the United Kingdom. Despite their name, wine gums contain no wine. The name comes from the lingering, subtle fruit flavors that make it "similar to the experience of savouring a fine wine". In reference to this, the sweets have the names of alcoholic drinks on them, for example port, sherry, champagne, claret, gin, rioja, chablis and Burgundy. Because each and every bite puts a smile on your face.
