To make cream soda syrup: Place sugar and 1/4 cup of water in a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat. Cook until sugar is caramelized and just starting to brown. Slowly add in 2 cups of water, lemon juice, and vanilla bean and bring to a boil. Remove from heat right after it boils, and let stand until cool. Discard vanilla beans and transfer to an airtight container.
To make ginger ale syrup: Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Once it starts to boil, remove it from the heat and add sugar. Stir to dissolve. Peel ginger and grate using a microplane into the sugar water. Add lemon juice, and let stand until cool. Strain out any large pieces of ginger and store in an airtight container.
To make popsicles: Fill popsicle molds 2/3 full with sparkling water and add 1/2 teaspoon of flavored syrup into each mold. Add 10-12 gummy bears into each mold until full. Top with popsicle sticks or lids and freeze for at least 4-5 hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, remove the popsicles from the freezer and enjoy immediately.
