No: About the only thing that might be dangerous about a handful of gummy vitamins is too much iron. However, most gummy vitamins have either no iron or very small amounts- you would need to take at least 1000 mg of elemental iron to have any toxic effects and i know of no gummies with that much iron. Nothing else in these would approach a toxic dose.
But the question I have is why did you do this?
