20 assorted gummy worms (not the sour variety)
1 (0.15-ounce) package artificially-flavored orange unsweetened soft drink concentrate, prepared according to package directions.
1 (2-liter) bottle lemon-lime soda
1 (46-ounce) can pineapple juice
1 (0.13-ounce) package artificially-flavored lemon-lime unsweetened soft drink concentrate
Gummy worms, gummy fish, gummy alligators, etc., if desired


Press about 20 gummy worms into bottom of 12-cup Bundt® or tube pan. Pour 6 cups prepared orange-flavored drink mix over gummy worms in pan. Cover; freeze 24 hours or until frozen.

Place soda, pineapple juice and lemon lime drink mix into punch bowl, at serving time. Stir to mix. Run bottom of Bundt® pan under warm water to release ice ring. Place ice ring into punch bowl.

Garnish with gummy worms and other gummy candies, if desired.


*Substitute 6 cups of any prepared non-carbonated orange drink.

Recipe Tip

- If you don’t have a round pan to form the ice ring, you can make wormy ice cubes. Place a gummy worm in each ice cube tray cup and fill with orange drink mix.

- Large plastic punch bowls are available at party supply stores. Make sure the top opening is at least 11 inches so that the ice ring will fit.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Fast, tasty punch. I've been looked for an easy one that is not too sweet and this works great. The ice ring didn't float like the picture for some reason. Kids liked the gummy worms in the ice ring, though. They eventually sink to the bottom of the punch bowl later.
We made this for a party and it was a big hit. The punch tasted great. The only thing I might change would be the gummy worms - they looked great, but they do break down in the punch and some kids didn't like that.

Cranberry Swirl Sweet Rolls
November 24, 2015 by Mallory

One of my favorite parts of the Thanksgiving meal is my husband’s homemade cranberry sauce. It’s a tart and sweet sauce, with hints of orange zest and brown sugar. I always have him make twice the amount needed because I love having leftovers. This year, I decided that rather than serving it alongside leftover turkey and mashed potatoes, I was going to try something new. We still have guests lingering the day after Thanksgiving, so what better way to ease the turkey “hangover” than with homemade sweet rolls for breakfast? More ...
