Sugarless Gummy Bears

January 17th, 2014 at 3:00 pm by David Farrar

From Slightly Viral:

Oh, gummy bears! They’re so tasty and delicious you can never eat just one. In fact most of us eat them by the handful.   And with diet season in full swing, some of us may be looking at the sugar-free alternative to help ease the gummy bear cravings.

But before you hop on Amazon to make a bulk purchase of the sugar-free variety, you just might want to read the safety warnings.  Or better yet, take a look at the user submitted reviews. We’ve compiled the best of the best for you here at Slightly Viral…

Go read the reviews. Priceless.

    If Dotcom was given these gummy bears, would there then be a state emergency declared.

    I’m stunned by the number of reviews from people who were warned and ate them anyway!

    Sugar free lollies are the devil.

    My gf and I pigged out on some about 10 years ago. Lucky their were two bathrooms in the house. It was brutal.

    Speaking as a person with diabetes, I’ve been forelornly looking at the breadth of consumer choice in diet colas overseas. Ah me. If I lived in the States, I could drink Diet Vanilla Coke and several other variant sugar-free alternative products. Same with Pepsi. I’m beginning to wonder if I shouldn’t encourage that sort of corporate sponsorship and segment marketing in terms of diabetes prevention.

    Yes, but would you?

    If it’s anything like the sugar-free Coke Zero (i.e. revolting) then I’d stick to just drinking water…

    There does seem to be use for them by gastroenterologists. They could prescribe these sweets to empty out the intestines instead of that revolting stuff they usually prescribe.

    Kea – same for me. I was laughing until I hurt – “visited by the fart fairy and a sales rep from Montezuma’s revenge”. Priceless!

    Whoever wrote that first review should be given a job writing comedies.

    The gummy bear company’s advertising department are absolute genius.

    In case most of you haven’t noticed, every single review has the same format, grammar, descriptives, intelligent style of writing… They are all written by the same people over and over.

    Hundreds if not thousands of customers are now buying this product for workmates they want to play pranks on.

    $$$.

    Should be up on the urban legend/hoax busting websites soon.

    Notice how every single reviewer has only ever reviewed that one product on Amazon?

    I have read the reviews and I was laughing the whole time. This gummy bears should be given to those who have problems with constipation and it would also be a great substitute for laxatives.

    I find beer an excellent drink – well, me and just about every other guy on the planet, but I mean an excellent drink for diabetics. Dinner substitutes like Guinness or Kilkenny need to be approached wth care, but German-style beers (which is most of the supermarket’s stock these days) hardly touch your blood sugar.

    I also question the veracity of some of those reviews. Clearly Farva21 “My Dinner With Andrea” has borrowed some ideas from the legendary laxative scene in Dumb and Dumber. When I first saw that scene, I fell of my chair in a fit of laughter. It was quite scary, because I was laughing so hard it caused me to experience quite sharp chest pains.

    Back to the issue of consumer choice for diabetics. I’ve tried Diet V Coke in Oz while visiting my parents in Brisbane. Not bad at all, and I wish it was available here in NZ. However, Pepsi Max is far better in terms of its health benefits without the problems of excessive sugar content in my case. We’re having a Stevia entrepreneur from Hawkes Bay along for a return visit to us next month. He actually underseld the benefits of his particular sugar-free product to us!

    dime,

    After reading those comments on sugar-free (diet) products, you should just be happy that you don’t have to pay to use the can…

    You could try an Asian supermarket. Sometimes, they have cheaper Diet Dr Peppers.

    And actually, I don’t really miss heavily sugared products all that much. For some reason, I’ve developed an overwhelming desire for sweet chili sauce, which I didn’t have before.
