I caught this last week. If you haven't seen this it is well worth the read. It is actually on the Amazon website ( http://www.amazon.com/Haribo-Gummy-Candy-Sugarless-5-Pound/dp/B000EVQWKC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1390336222&sr=8-1&keywords=haribo+sugar+free+gummi+bears ) -don't think it would make me want to buy them.

Weird. Something called Gummy Bear should have the opposite effect........

Apparently not. And there are several other similar reviews.

There are, but I wouldn't necessarily take them seriously. Amazon reviews are a common outlet for creative writing - Three Wolf Moon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Wolf_Moon)shirts, anyone?

Actually a great deal of "sugar free" items have this effect. Some even warn on the label that they may act as a laxative. I like sugar free pies, but I can only eat the apple. The others do exactly what those gummy bears do.

I spent an hour on Amazon UK, reading reviews from Barrettine Methylated Spirit that they put in the Grocery/Food section. It's for cleaning paint brushes. :D
This review is from: Barrettine Methylated Spirit 500ml (Misc.)
I thought I had mastered responsible drinking, until that is, I woke up in hospital 2 weeks after hosting my first (and last) Barrettine Methylated Spirit shots party. I don't know if it was the number of forfeits that broke me or if it was the sixteen pints of Barrettine shandy, but when I eventually collapsed face-first onto a tealight it took three buckets of sand and the garden hose to put me out. My firey breath actually melted my dentures. My mate Ronnie came off even worse and is still in Urology Intensive Care. It's one thing to light your farts after a couple of pints of Guinness, but those Barrettine Methylated Spirits bottles should really carry a warning about that sort of thing. Poor Ronnie, he was lit up like an oil rig gas flare and we still can't find his trousers. As nights go though, it was certainly a memorable one - so much so that the boys from Red Watch are planning on using the footage taken in the house in one of their fire safety training films. Accordingly, I'm giving it 5 stars, but only on the understanding that nobody should try this at home. These comments go on for 23 pages. I was ROTFL.
BTW, them gummies are not good for you!
