In Cranbrook British Columbia last year a woman and her teenage son were charged with lacing Gummy Bears with LSD. Yes, once again the Mounties got their man. Or, in this case a woman, and her 18 year old son. But in another Keystone Cops moment, they were not even looking for tainted Gummy Bears-- they were looking for marijuana.
The Gummy Bears were apprehended last Spring, and it was not until July until the lab tests came back.
What month is it? Oh yes, it's January, and they have just announced this with Canadian pride. Fifty-year-old Christianne Bateman and her son Benjamin are facing charges of possessing and trafficking in drugs.
How many Gummy Bears were there?
How many did you say again?
Yes, the sugary eight are now in custody.
Gummy Bears are addictive without the LSD. Trader Joe's knows that. They, along with many other companies sell Gummy Vitamins for adults. Do you know how hard it is just to take two? . They state to only take as directed daily and not to exceed suggested dosage.
I repeat, how do you just take two?
What happens if I cannot stop, and I eat like six? Or maybe eight? Or maybe the whole bottle?
'If you have a medical condition, pregnant or nursing do not use this
What kind of medical condition are they talking about? I don't have to worry about being pregnant, the office has long been closed.
'Seek the advice of a qualified health care professional before taking'.
At what point do you pull these suckers out, look at the doctor straight in the face, and ask him about these things. What kind of answer is he going to give you do you think?
Haribo Gummy Bears, the only Gummy Bears I can eat with Celiac disease is causing great gastric distress because of the Maritol they are using as a sugar sweetener. It happens to be a pretty powerful laxative when eaten in large amounts.
Be warned eating any "sugar free candies" in large quantities will create a laxative effect. I am puzzled that people did not notice this as it is written on the package. I ate these once or twice and the taste was good but it did leave an after taste. On the gastrointestinal side, words can't convey how bad it was. Sorbitol (a sugar alcohol) is the likely culprit for your discomfort and this is found in most sugar free ingredients.
So basically, what they are saying is that these sugar free gummy bears are the sh!//ts.
Eating plastic doesn't sit well and it puts a whole new spin on the "Dancing Bears" theme.
Anybody who eats sugar-free items needs to know that sugar substitutes are a laxative! On the other hand anyone who eats over 1 lb of candy of any kind in one sitting deserves what he/she gets!
I will have to remember that.
