Well, I was fast but not fast enough. Two of my four bottles of gummy vitamins were melting into a big gooey ball when I opened the box.
Here's what I did to save them.
While they were still hot/warm (this is key) I opened the bottles, shook/pried out the blog of gummies and separated them on a cookie sheet. I let them chill in the refrigerator for a few minutes before putting them back into the bottles.
I was able to save them all (get them all separated) although a couple stayed as pairs, which is no big deal since I take 2 at a time anyway.

*I will add that if you live in an oven-land like I do even the store vitamins can be gooey messes too. Always check the bottles carefully before purchasing.
