Someone who made a verified purchase of a five-pound bag of sugar-free Gummy Bears on Amazon posted one of the funniest reviews I have ever read. Whether it is true or not, I don't know, but it sure is funny.

The flavor of the snacks was not the problem for this reviewer:

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.

However the sugar substitute caused him digestive distress, apparently.

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.

He goes into further detail that you can read here if you like.
