Gummi Bear Scandal Exposed August 17, 2007

Posted by Michael in Crime, Food.

Those perfidious Germans. How long did they think they could get away with this?!?

They look innocent enough.


S. Weasel is about to rock your world. She got suspicious when she began her in-depth research on gummi bears (reading a Wiki article):

Something must be controversial in Gummibärchenwelt, because the Wikipedia page is barred from change by newbies (a safeguard they don’t provide obscure, uncontroversial figures like George Bush). Perhaps someone disputes the claim that gummies produce bezoars and bowel obstructions. Or perhaps it’s the fascinating gummy fact that isn’t there. Wait for it. Wait for it…

Ack! No wonder I’ve never liked them.

2. Wickedpinto - August 18, 2007

I liked gummy bears, and being the baby of the family, I introduced them to the rest of my family.

My father LOVED them, he would eat them in full handfuls at a time like they were popcorn.

He killed one of those. . .what are they 3lb tubs? in less than a day.

I like sweets, but I don’t gorge on them, I like a couple hear and there, my mother is the same, and my brother to a lesser degree, but my pops?

36 sweet teeth. I’ve seen him eat 2 lb’s of chocolate covered cherry’s in a sitting, and then down a steak. If it’s sweet, pops will eat it.

cool i never liked it too anyways…now i can stop my sister from eating it anymore since its haram…i don’t have to go down to the shop anymore and bring it for her. 😉

Gummi bears are haram? Are you kidding?

5. Dave in Texas - August 18, 2007

Leviticus 21:12 “and of the confection bears that are gummy, those are right out”!

6. Michael - August 18, 2007

Yes, Laura, according to Weasel’s exposé they are mostly made from rendered pig flesh.

7. lauraw - August 18, 2007

?? What for? Gelatin?

Anyhoo. I’ve never liked those things. I like my sweets in the form of pastry or chocolate, and infrequently.

Except for Edy’s ice cream, which is the breakfast of champions.

8. daveintexas - August 18, 2007

21. concerned - June 2, 2008

in my home town i am working on a patition to show people that gummy bears have feelings too. they are eaten, and chewed up why should we sit here and watch our friends commit murder to the gummy nation. people don’t believe that gummy bears are anything but candy, BUT THEY ARE WRONG!!! gummy bears let us eat them even when they cry from the pain, and they are always there to cheer you up because they are just that cute so please look at this horrible crime being commited and lets save some gummy bears.

22. laura - June 14, 2008

28. Lipstick - June 14, 2008

I wants me some of those, not the horse pills I take.

29. eddiebear - June 14, 2008

^My only problem is wondering if the dosage in a toddler vitamin is what would get an adult through the day.

30. piggieluvr - July 22, 2008

36. eddiebear - November 7, 2008

^the gummi bears, or IB?

37. Carlos - November 12, 2008

Mmm si deliciosos. No me interesa lo que digan de ellos.

38. Wickedpinto - November 12, 2008

thats how they get their chewiness,

No, they get their chewiness from gelatin, which is render collagen, which is taken from wherever collagen can be captured (usuall most offal, and bone scraps no matter the animal.)

I learned that from my vegan friend from when I was in the MC (exactly how you can get your daily requirements as a Marine while being a Vegan is beyond me unless his canteen was filled with soybean oil, but he was)

Gelatin, and collagin is a nono. The vegan guy, used to eat pectin only gummy candies that he mail ordered, and it’s not the same thing, not even close.

39. JJ - December 26, 2008

There are ORGANIC VEGAN GUMMI BEARS (which I think tast better then regular) Manufactured under strict organic controls in Germany and are QAI certified organic, all Let’s Do Organic™ Gummi Bears are made without gelatin, so they are perfectly suitable for vegans. Eating these Organic Bears are gluten-free and completely vegan, suitable for a wide range of special diets.

shit I love gummy bears

41. reason - August 14, 2009

Being made of distilled pigbones only makes me lurve them more.

42. Tricia - October 28, 2009

This is funny this subject has come up. I live in a town of 3000, and 3 surgeries in the past 3 1/2 years have been required to remove bezoars from children caused by gummy vitamins being taken daily. All 3 surgeons in our town now have advised all family doctors to avoid gummi vitamins and candies. To me, in a town so small, this is a pretty high rate.
