I Have a Large Bag of Gummy Bears in My Purse!

5 Mar

It was Friday and I like treats on Friday and for some reason I don’t really think of gummy bears as being “bad for you”.  They are this yummy composition of chewy goodness that makes my taste buds happy. While I don’t have them often, when I do, I feel no guilt… that is until I eat too much.

A certain someone likes to remind me, as I curl over in pain from food related incidents: “Nat, you are a glutton for punishment!” The bears turned evil in my stomach and it didn’t help that I had a big dinner of veggies and steak beforehand. I had dreams about those bears organizing themselves and building a fort in my tummy to prepare an attack on my insides. Was that too graphic?

These bears were purchased at the bulk food section at Whole Foods. I got the non-organic fruit juice kind. Thank goodness I found them because last time I got the organic variety and it cost me a pretty penny. The cashier was just as surprised as me with the price but I didn’t want to put them back and appear like I didn’t know what I was buying…

When I visited Germany a couple of years ago, my friend and I pigged out on these gummy bears. I love me some Haribo! Come to think of it, I do remember getting a massive tummy ache shortly thereafter. This was right before I was set to go on a long train ride to Belgium.  Not fun!

    How many of those little bears did you consume? Next time try to by gummi bears that have been MUZZLED and DECLAWED. At least they will have a harder time organizing and building forts in your tummy lol!
