Oh Internet. You are so amusing. I am so addicted to your charms. One of the most beautiful things (where is that sarcasm HTML5 tag they promised) about the Internet is its ability to write great reviews for products on Amazon.
So the reviews for the “Haribo Gummy Candy, Sugarless Gummy Bears, 5-Pound Bag” are priceless. Be warned, if you don’t like graphic descriptions of going to the bathroom, do not read. It seems the sweetener for this product can cause intestinal difficulties in some people. There is even a warning on the item description.
Consumption of some sugar-free candies may cause stomach discomfort and/or a laxative effect. Individual tolerance will vary. If this is the first time you’ve tried these candies, we recommend beginning with one-fourth of a serving size or less. Made with Lycasin, a sugar alcohol. As with other sugar alcohols, people sensitive to this substance may experience upset stomachs.
So they can say consumers were warned. And I warn you too not to read this as it will make you laugh out loud and you may cry from the pain of laughter.
There are other now infamous items on Amazon with amazing reviews.
And finally the classic that started it all, the Three Wolf Moon Shirt
This shirt is amazing for its magical properties. After the Meme started for this it eventually made it to an episode of “The Office” with Dwight wearing it. Later on Rainn Wilson auctioned a signed copy of the shirt on eBay for charity to help Haiti.
