What Can You Hold In A 12 Kilo Gummy Bear?

It’s not every day that we get sent a 12kg Gummy Bear — or at least my dentist hopes it’s not. But having been sent a bear with a notable chest cavity got us thinking. What could you store in there?

The idea behind a massive gummy Bear is that you’ll use his tummy cavity to store other foodstuffs for your party. We should note at this point that the bear we got sent isn’t, as we first thought, an Party Bear; this is instead a “Big Ol’ Bear” or BOB, for short. BOB’s pretty similar to the Party Bear, except he doesn’t have a funky video to go along with him. One thing that I originally thought was the case with both BOB and the Party Bear was that they had actual bowls in their tummies; instead in both cases it’s just a gap, which means that anything you place in there is in direct gummy contact at all times.

Also, if you leave a 12kg gummy bear in an office under lights for a week, it sweats a little. Mmmm… gummy sweat.

He can store foodstuffs, even if they do make it look like an outtake from Alien.

He can be used with the Internet’s favourite foodstuff: Bacon.
(although it’s surprisingly hard to get anyone to eat either the bacon or the bear afterwards)

We could go on and on, but this is a story best told in pictures; check out the gallery below for a complete appreciation of everything you could — but probably shouldn’t — store in a sweaty gummy cavity.
