Back when I was young, you know, before dirt was invented, I worked in a grocery store and one of the things that came out at the time and mercifully didn’t go anywhere is Snack foods made with Olestra, which was an undigestable substitute for the fat in potato chips among other things. They made you lose weight in the worst way.
Anyway, I saw this yesterday, and it brought back memories, not personally unpleasant since I was never stupid enough to eat Olestra Chips (they were called WOW chips back in the day), but the stories in the comments on this one matched what I was hearing at the time.
Five pound bags huh? Woof!
The comments are hilarious!
Not a big fan of gummies, and I’ve never had gummy bears [or worms]…but, I have had CBD gummies…they were great! 😉 😃
THANKS for the warning!!!
Yikes! Reminds me of my last colonoscopy. 😆
Keep in mind, this isn’t about regular Gummy candy which does contain sugar and doesn’t cause gastric distress. This is the sugarless variety that has an artificial sweetener.
Baisically to remove calories the food manufacturer has to include a chemical substance that cannot be metabolized. This invariably causes some kind of problem. Of course the obvious answer “If you don’t want to gain weight, don’t eat the garbage” doesn’t sell product for them.
