1.0 out of 5 stars Just don't. Unless it's a gift for someone you hate., October 3, 2012
By C. TorokAmazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Haribo Gummy Candy, Sugarless Gummy Bears, 5-Pound Bag (Grocery)
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 generally 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. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

Oh my! I thought I just read a hysterical review, but this has to be TOPS. I'm so sorry, but this had me howling out loud. I'm not sure I want to put myself through that. Thanks for the warning!

I decided to read this a loud to my husband after only reading the title of the review. There were times when I was laughing so terribly hard, I began coughing. He was laughing furiously, sometimes no sound escaping. Tears falling from our eyes - shallow breaths, wheezing. I had to stop reading for a bit just to catch my breath! Great story.

I happened to think that Mystic Pizza was great, I enjoyed it! She certainly is not boring and not bland. The dance cd is great, have not seen the dvd of the show.

Ellen,
Julia was not a great co-host. She was extremely withholding and not fun like your crazy self. I hope today's co-host is a willing, self-less participant. Have a great day.

Julia Roberts and Ellen D. Thought I had died and gone to heaven, great show.
By the way Julia, Mystic Pizza is a good movie, I have watched it several times over the years. Anyone who says you are bland and boring should book themselves an eye test and give their nethers a good once over with Gold Bond.

Ellen. I was thrilled that you had Julia Roberts as your co-host yesterday. She is my favorite actress. So Julia, how you even got 1star even for mystic pizza is beyond me. You have been a 10 since day one. I have seen all of your movies, but my favorite is Pretty Woman. My daughter and I watched at movie over and over. Then 3 years ago she passes at the young age of 38. Now it's a little harder for me to watch, but when I do I think of her and how beautiful she was inside and out.
Love your show Ellen. Watch it everyday and who knows maybe some day I will get lucky enough to get tickets to your show. Keep doing what you are doing. You bring so much joy and laughter to so many of us especially on some of our darker days that then turn Bright!

Hi
I don't think it on amazon anymore, but someone wrote a revue for the Bible that was worth looking for. Quite long and gigglegasm worthy. "ok story but the begets lost me in the beginning" type of thing. Sorry I can't even tell you if it was the U.S or the Uk amazon.
Hope you find it.
Thanks for being you
Jacqui
