I don't know. It just seemed too convenient to say gummy bears as opposed to any other type of candy.
In another scene, Amy makes 'vegetarian' ravioli for her daughter and proudly proclaimed it had no meat in it. Alas, there was shrimp in the ravioli and her daughter stormed off. Amy shouts up the stairs, "But lots of vegetarians eat seafood". I just gotta think that there's a vegetarian writer for the show, trying to make a point or an ex-veggie who's poking some fun. Either way, it was fun to watch.
