Gummy bears- so tasty, but so...dangerous! If you've read the hilarity that is Amazon reviews for sugar-free Haribo gummy bears, then you have an idea of how these sweet deathbears work-- eat a handful and meet up with your old nemesis, diarrhea. But, why, why does this happen? There's a perfectly scientific response! Kim Horcher discusses with Phil Torres (Scientist, host of Al Jazeera America's TechKnow) and Jason G.

I AM IMMUNE TO THE HELLBEARS!!!!
This also happens with xylitol sugar which is a sugar alcohol. It's supposed to be good for people with diabetic as it won't increase blood sugar level, but have tooo many of this sugar....and you'll end up on the toilet ALL dayy!!
they should just remarket these as a laxative
im getting thease just so if i want to go off school take 6 and bam
I am going to ruin peoples days;)
I have them for my diet because it’s aloud for me and oh my goodness I was on the toilet for a minute because i didn’t know diet hummus could do this and remember only have 6 a day
"WHAT A LONG, STRANGE TRIP ITS BEEN..."
I want them ^^
nobody tested these gummy bears before they sold it?
I had like 5 gosh lots of poop
Do they still do this?? This would be mad funny to try on someone
OH SHIT THATS WHAT FUCKED ME UP THE OTHER WEEK!
This could be a great way to lose weight.
I’m pretty sure it says on the bag, or it used to, to eat only HALF of one, if you haven’t ate them before. It’s not just people that ate “too many”.
well, You know the saying......... Shit Happens..........................
Nobody knows crap like The Young Turds. Trump 2020 !!!
Oh, I remember those potato chips. I was an innocent five year old and they cut right through me. Ah the memories.
I've had this happen not from Gummy Bears but from sugar free chocolate mints... one long ass day at work that I'll never forget the end of... and am grateful that the bag had a max of 6 mints...
15? 5 just about killed me!
Hate to tell you this but it doesn't take 15 to do this... 6 fricking bears and boom, 15 minutes later, I was screaming for the kid to get out of the bathroom.. These things should be illegal or given as prescription for constipation.
for those who are interested as a sugar free confectionery business based in the
UK, it would be best if people eat stevia-based gummies as they have no
laxatives effects on the body, any sweeteners that are based on alcohol
sugars like moltitol, xylotol etc but any that contain sucralose will
not have that effect on the body, it is recommended that on alcohol
based sweeteners that no more than 100g of sweets per sitting, consumers
should really research the types of sweeteners before consumption as
they effect people differently because of the chemistry different
sweeteners will react differently to the human body, stevia based gummies sweets is recommended as they do not have adverse reactions for those who are interested we stock sugar free stevia gummies to the US market we cannot sell yet to this market because of US food laws require food labeling to be clearly written we are currently looking into this..
I need me some of these
I'd rather eat normal gummy bears
DO NOT EAT LIFE SAVERS SUGAR FREE!!!!!!! I literally ate 15 of these life savers not knowing that each one contains 14 grams of sugar alcohol. After 40 grams of sugar alcohol, they act as a laxative. I ate 15 life savers, so 210 grams of sugar alcohol. I was on the toilet crapping my brains out in pain for about 15 hours. No, this is not a joke. I knew sugar free gummy bears did this to people, I didn't know it was all sugar free candy. It even says on the back of the life savers sugar free package, "May have a laxative effect". I'm not kidding, check it out. Do not make the same horrible mistake I made, please.
LMFAO Oooohhh this would make a wicked and totally fucked up prank/pay back from some one when Halloween comes around. I'm going to make a personal note to myself to avoid any offers of Gummy Bears this October.
We were at the store and I got gummy‘s they never said they were sugar-free so I ate them and gave some to my sister and I soon as we got home we both need to go to the bathroom went to the bathroom a few minutes later I need to go again and so did my sister and then we spent hours in the bathroom
That poor agent
Who else just ate a pack of gummy bears and feel really bad
It’s not just gummy bears, it’s anything that contains sugar substitutes. Werthers sugar free put me on the loo for 27 hours....I was like a pyjama case collapsing on the bathroom floor by the end...!
Omg I had theses and never got sick I only got a horrible stomach pain
"The worst satan hell-bears diarrhea explosion"
Quote of the year?
haribo fart = yet another cry of a Lonely imprisoned Haribo gummy bear
in the darkness of solitary confinement filing grievances to haribo
rights Lawyers to set them free with the Liberty that aspartame / nutra
sweetener endowed them with by their food chemical creator
great PRANK to someone you hate >:)
They seem like a good revenge gift for like an abusive ex, or a politician, or something.
The LA Beast ate a 5 pound bag for one of his videos. Predictable hilarity ensued.
I remember a story about a college landlord who had a habit of going to the students house and sampling (no, full meals of the stuff they paid for) and nobody liked that. One saw these reviews and decided that they were going to buy the 5lb bag. They would take a couple handfuls and put them in zip locks and store them with their food.
The bait was set. The landlord was in one of the restrooms for HOURS! did it twice and he stopped taking their food until they left.
Upon leaving they gave the new group the remaining bag. It kept going XD anti pavlog's dog
Yes! Those Doritos and potato chips were made by the devil! I'm glad they quit making them.
Good thing is
I eat normal gummi bears 4 lyfe
This most certainly gives a new meaning to pooh bear!
Obviously as a young child, This would have changed the dynamics of the Saturday morning cartoon I used to watch weekly!
Even worse imagine the scenario; soaking several pounds of these sugar free gummy bears in alcohol for a party, not knowing the calamity of fecal flow of your guests, after consuming at least 20 per person. Suffice to say it would be a different version of Gordie Lachance's campfire story of Lard Ass from Stand by me!
Eat these and no what I go through everyday. Living with severe crohn's disease makes these gummi bears eaters experience look like a nice holiday
like mentos in coke
reaction plume inverted
can't bear these gummies
I had gummy candy that didn't even say it was sugar free. Combined with my antibiotics (clindamycin), my digestive system was getting an uppercut while being boiled in sulfuric acid. I saw that there was no toilet paper and tried to scurry to get some. HORRIBLE DECISION. I was trying to make it to the toilet before the flood gates bursted open. But the locks snapped. Shit all of the toilet. Shit in my pants. Shit on my shirt. Shit everywhere. So I’m sitting there, a painful cyst in my ass, diarrhea in my trousers, calling for help, and crying.
"it confuses your intestines"
lol that chick has a cute necklace and cute earrings but damn she looks cray
Would have guessed Sorbitol,
is it all because of maltitol?
Oh, no, not the bears. NOT THE BEARS! AAAAAAHH! Oh, no, my eye, my brown eye! AAAAAAAAHHHH!
This happened to me about 8 years ago, I ordered a bunch of sugar free chocolate online and every time I had some it really messed up my digestive system. I don't recall what the sugar substitute was but it probably was maltitol.
Just ate a bag of sugar free Jolly Ranchers last night and the next day it was like a hangover it was the worst thing ever. Straight water was coming out lol
Why do they all seems like weirdos?

Note to self: "Never eat sugar free candy"
Can we even believe this? TyT? I have my doubts.
If you go on amazon and look up "haribo sugar free gummi bears" it says "we dont know when this item will be back in stock" but tbh the comments are literally funny asf
Least shitty thing associated with tyt
I knew sugar free gummy bears were too good to be true.
So these gummy bears simulate cholera
It's because of these gummy bears, that I now read the Amazon reviews before I buy something. I had a sweet tooth and wanted gummy bears. When I got these in the mail, that's when I found out that they were sugar free, but didn't think anything of it. I snacked on them throughout the day. Didn't eat anything else. Then later in the day, my stomach started to hurt... Then all hell broke lose. It was Satan's fury on my asshole! I'm an Atheist, but I was praying to God to make it stop.
Fuck the sugar free jelly beans, had me on the toilet for an hour
I think it's great to put in a bowl in the office.
Just be damned sure that your ignorance poker face is up to par.
I ate a whole bag in one sitting I regret it
If you eat more than one of those satanic snacks you will explode. They are poison. POISON I TELL YOU!
Houston Jones brought me here
GROSS! But thanks. What was it? Maltitov (how do you spell that)? I'll stay away from it.
Ate like 15 once and shot clear liquid out of my ass like a water jet.
I am the yummiest laxatives
3:51 - if Futurama were still around, the olestra potato-chip joke would have gone ahead with dessert. Alas poor Bender.
How about not being a glutton and stuffing your fat face with gummy bears.
All american hefty kids should get these to learn some common decency and lose a few tubs of lard.
i had about 6 handfulls over the course of 3 hours, and all i had was a lot of gas. =/
I made the mistake of watching this while eating lunch.
A new torture method for the CIA
any sugar free candy taken ro excess is a laxative. in the uk labels have a warning pointing this out
Thankyou! This video has confirmed my suspiscion! I've been eating some sugar free sweets recently. I've also had a dodgy feeling in my stomach, followed by the dreaded mahogany bum piss! The rest of them are definitely going in the bin now!
Ohh maltitol is in some sugar free sweet drops! In large amounts, you can get diarrhoea, just like some mints(eg fisherman’s friend)
ate 20 of these, currently on toilet an hour later pooping on the walls
I don't have this problem at all. I eat ridiculous amounts of the things.
I’m watching this on the toilet, fun times!!!
Nah aspetame is better it gives u cancer faster but u don't get diarrhea
5 of thease and u will fart
Stephen Fry on QI addressed this too.
Eating gummy bears in moderation is used for diabetics with gastroparesis. Great helpful video. Moderation in this case is 15 little bears. Actually sugar free life savers also will help. Not 15; don't know dosage. Gastroparesis is a terrible consequence of diabetes for many and is not spoken of much. Food stays in the stomach and nutrients are not absorbed by the small intestine. It's a delicate balancing act.
OMG my brother gave me a pack of these....totally unaware I ate the whole bag, Jesus Christ it didn't take long for the affect of nuclear war in my underwear ! Damn!
I once ate 2 good handfuls of those things. I just shoved them into my mouth with gusto, thinking it couldn't hurt since they were sugar free, and they tasted pretty good, but I was in for hell for the next few hours.
20 minutes after it started, while playing skyrim, I felt a little rumble in my stomach and new something was wrong. I couldn't slam my asscheeks on the toilet harder or faster if I tried, amd as soon as my butt touched down, I gripped the bathtub rim and sink out of fear for my life as my asshole turned into a rocket engine and blasted off.
After 30 minutes of anal torture, I thought I was fine, but thinking that it wasnt the candy and it was the reheated thai food, I grabbed another handful of the bears. I couldn't get my ass on the toilet in time, as after taking off my pants and my ass pointing at the shower/bathtub, I squirted what seemed like pure stomach acid out of my butt. I sat there on the bathtub edge for hours, shitting and crying, hoping the hell I was experiencing would end, and turned on the shower to rinse my now burning and bleeding asshole off of all the acid that has sprayed out.
After it had finally ended, I didn't have enough strength to walk, and my legs gave out. I had crawled from the bathroom, pants around my ankles, without a shirt on, and layed my chest over the edge of my bed and weakly cried myself to sleep.
I found this out the hard way I didn't even realized the pack I grabbed was sugar free
If you eat enough normal gummy bears (eg. A whole 1 litre tub) its a similar effect, except its all for a little dribble of ass jelly. 0/10 do not recommend.
The same things happens if you eat to much sugar free chocolate... you shit your pants.
This vidoe is so f dumb, maltitol is not laxative if u eat it in moderation, gummie bears is like 99% sugar so when you replace that huge amount of sugar with maltitol than of course it will be laxative
lol the amazon reviews are awesome XD
pretty cool earings and necklace
So I used to eat these when I had ED flares so I'd be able to binge and have a laxative effect. Incorrect, just have extreme bloating and have rivaled a skunk
Amazon reviews were hilarious. (the best ones were taken down when Amazon stopped selling the gummies online XD)
my anal prep
These are the weapons of WWIII everyone!
15 per dose. When you have to refer to something as a dose, it should come with a warning label, or better yet don't give them to kids!!! Or child-like adults.
