Gastrointestinal ArmageddonNov 23, 2009
By C. Cooper
When I got these, I couldn't contain my excitement and I ate about a quarter of a bag. Scenes from the movie 2012 could have been filmed inside my gut. There would have been less pressure to make two winning free throws in the NBA finals than for gas to escape my bowels. After a few hours, I had an EXTREME build-up of gas with no relief. All I could do was lie on my bed and pray for a fart. That might sound funny, but when you've eaten something that has basically turned you into the blueberry girl from Willy Wonka, you're pleading for relief. Well, the farts came and I lived through it but I not only had a visit from the fart fairy, but the sales rep from Montezuma's Revenge stopped by and gave me a FULL demo of their services as well.
In retrospect, eating over a pound all at once wasn't the brightest thing I've done (but it also wasn't the dimmest). If I go back and finish the bag off, I'll probably leave a suicide note.

Just don't. Unless it's a gift for someone you hate.Oct 03, 2012
By C. Torok
Oh man...words cannot express what happened to me after eating these. The Gummi Bear "Cleanse". If you are someone that can tolerate the sugar substitute, enjoy. If you are like the dozens of people that tried my order, RUN!
First of all, for taste I would rate these a 5. So good. Soft, true-to-taste fruit flavors like the sugar variety...I was a happy camper.
BUT (or should I say BUTT), not long after eating about 20 of these all hell broke loose. I had a gastrointestinal experience like nothing I've ever imagined. Cramps, sweating, bloating beyond my worst nightmare. I've had food poisoning from some bad shellfish and that was almost like a skip in the park compared to what was going on inside me.
Then came the, uh, flatulence. Heavens to Murgatroyd, the sounds, like trumpets calling the demons back to Hell...the stench, like 1,000 rotten corpses vomited. I couldn't stand to stay in one room for fear of succumbing to my own odors.
But wait; there's more. What came out of me felt like someone tried to funnel Niagara Falls through a coffee straw. I swear my sphincters were screaming. It felt like my delicate starfish was a gaping maw projectile vomiting a torrential flood of toxic waste. 100% liquid. Flammable liquid. NAPALM. It was actually a bit humorous (for a nanosecond)as it was just beyond anything I could imagine possible.
AND IT WENT ON FOR HOURS.
I felt violated when it was over, which I think might have been sometime in the early morning of the next day. There was stuff coming out of me that I ate at my wedding in 2005.
I had FIVE POUNDS of these innocent-looking delicious-tasting HELLBEARS so I told a friend about what happened to me, thinking it HAD to be some type of sensitivity I had to the sugar substitute, and in spite of my warnings and graphic descriptions, she decided to take her chances and take them off my hands.
Silly woman. All of the same for her, and a phone call from her while on the toilet (because you kinda end up living in the bathroom for a spell) telling me she really wished she would have listened. I think she was crying.
Her sister was skeptical and suspected that we were exaggerating. She took them to work, since there was still 99% of a 5 pound bag left. She works for a construction company, where there are builders, roofers, house painters, landscapers, etc. Lots of people who general have limited access to toilets on a given day. I can't imagine where all of those poor men (and women) pooped that day. I keep envisioning men on roofs, crossing their legs and trying to decide if they can make it down the ladder, or if they should just jump.
If you order these, best of luck to you. And please, don't post a video review during the aftershocks.

Tastes great, makes you fartFeb 15, 2007
By Z. Ragsdale
These taste just as good as the sugar ones to me. The best part is that it gives you tons of gas, which is really fun when around friends. Just make sure you don't eat these before a job interview or something.

Very close to the real thing.Oct 27, 2006
By M. Edgar
I lived in Germany and have consumed my share of gummi bears. :) These sugar free bears are very good. This type of candy suits itself to sugar free treatment. Much like hard candy. You don't get the big taste difference like you do with lots of the chocolate sugar free treats.
A word on some of the reviews listed here on Amazon... Sugar Free candies are not meant to be eaten by the handfull. Sugar Free is mostly made for people that can't process the Sugar and people that are in this category have all learned from experience, you don't eat Sugar Free sweets in any large amount.
I have a mild case of Type II which I am gratefully able to control by diet alone and can tell you personally that these candies are very good if you are in a Gummi mood. The affect on my blood sugar is typical of this sort of treat. Just as I wouldn't eat 50 carbs of anything, a snack of this type is only around 10 bears.
People living with health issues concerning Blood Sugar understand the requirement. Those just looking to cut carbs or lose a bit of weight may want to re-think eating most sugar free treats and look into other type of sweets to satisfy.

Excellent candy to keep around the office for greedy co-workersApr 17, 2007
By Andrew Schaefer
I bought 10lbs of these bears while I was doing the "Atkins thing"... and I found the same gastric issues that others experienced. However, we like to keep them around the office for newbies to experience. They're so tasty that people will sit at your desk and snarf down a whole bowl full. We'd warn them not to eat too many, but they'd just nod and keep munching. The next day they're a believer in moderation. Apparently we're all masochists as we ate all 10lbs in a month regardless of side-effects.
