Agar is used in a lot of Japanese food and also as a thickener for vegan and vegetarian foods. It doesn't produce quite as 'springy' a texture as gelatin, but then again, gelatin is disgusting. Agar produces a thick texture (a bit like cornstarch would), with a slight resistance (a tiny bit like gelatin). I haven't mastered gummy bears (I think they require carnauba wax and corn syrup), but I do think this works great if you use just a bit for pie or traditional Japanese agar fruit snacks.
It may smell a little seaweedy in the bowl, but there's no residual flavor that I can detect in my truffle pie.
