    Wonder what the price is?

    The website linked above shows them as $23.00

    Just clicked the link. They're out of stock,
    Maybe sold out? Put cleanse with anything and someone will take it.

    The store's exit isn't the only orifice those things are going to fly out of.

    I looked at the ingredients list on their website:
    Ingredients:
    Glucose syrup, sugar, gelatin, fruit juice concentrate (apple, lemon), spinach concentrate, citric acid, natural flavors, natural colors (spirulina, safflower), ginger extract, palm oil, beeswax, carnauba wax, vitamin C, vitamin A

    Sooo, mostly sugar. I don't see any magic fairy dust or anything. Not sure exactly what it's supposed to "detox" you of.

    Your will to live?

    So what you’re saying is that I can do this wonderful cleanse with rosé gummy bears instead since they are almost identical to these? Great!

    I mean, Haribo Sugar Free gummy bears would get the job done a lot quicker and cheaper. And OH so much more thoroughly.

    I wonder what the effects of vodka-soaked Haribo sugar free gummy bears would be like. From a scientific standpoint obviously.

    I do believe that's what they call the burning ring of fire.

    @nutmegoreo
    I do believe that a review on Amazon says it best "volcanic eruption incinerating my delicate starfish".

    And then add vodka!

    The vodka is so you won't give a *kitten* when you're pooping your intestines out. B)

    I'm kinda not surprised that it originally started out as a joke, but loads of people didn't get it. MFP people get it though.

    @BruinsGal_91 And anyone who's read the Amazon reviews for Haribo Sugarfree gummy bears, they are mortifying and hilarious.

    Oh so true....couldn't help myself eating these little sh**s. Didn't read the warnings!
    Oh my lord....death would have been a blessing!

    Side note: Fat free Pringles have the same damned ingredient to cause the effect. Less of it, but enough to cause you to question your own existence and life in general. I did buy a pack of them for my cheating ex and his gf (ex-friend as well). Not even a little sorry
