You say “gummy,” I say “gummi”

Don’t be hatin’ just ’cause I know how to pronounce Gummi (as in Gummi Bears) the original way—the way Germans and many other Europeans do. I lived there for three years. 😉 To wit: forvo.com/word/gummi/

Gummi translates as “rubber.” So no, I won’t pronounce it “gummy.” I will pronounce it as it should be pronounced (in my mind, anyway), which is “goo-me.”
