This Ginormous Gummi Bear Is Making Me Hungry

I believe it was a wise, wise man who once said "Mmmm… Gummi". But how much Gummi is too much? You might be tempted to say that there is no limit. I think this bear breaks that.

The Gummi -- OK, for trademark reasons, it's a "gummy" -- bear featured in this video is real, and you can buy it.

It should go without saying that you shouldn't.

It's listed as 26 pounds (which makes it 11.79kg) and 32,000 calories and it'll set you back $US200. I'm not entirely up on my calorie counting, but that would be something like half a month's worth of calorie intake, give or take. In a single bear. I'm sure I'd be sick of Gummi before I was even halfway through the head, but I'm still somewhat stupidly tempted.

It does come with an integrated bowl, so I could always put something healthy in there. Like, say, more gummi. Just don't tell my dentist about it, OK? [Vat 19 via Geekosystem]


    If you'll excuse me, I need to call my fiancée and tell her I found our wedding cake.

    Gelatin is a mixture of peptides and proteins produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from the boiled bones, connective tissues, organs and some intestines of animals such as domesticated cattle, chicken, and pigs.

      Everything is everything else, just with different amounts of everything.

      Vegan alert!

      Makes me want it even more. mmmmm connective tissue - drools....

      what? no Bear content?


    It's just a pity shipping for this is ~$170. The shipping rates out of the USA are just ridiculous at times.

      They are available in Australia. :)

    You know Alex, I'm sure this would go down well as a gift/raffle prize in the Allure offices...

      Guess how many gummy bears are in the room?

      I have this feeling that if one of them landed in the Allure offices, it would never make it out the door. Also, I would need some kind of emergency helicopter-based dentistry.

        Airborne dentists?

        What a horrifying thought.

          Especially if they are New Zealand helicopter dentists...

          (Wouldn't be making this joke if anybody had been hurt in the crash)

    Thanks for uncovering a horrific suppressed memory. My grandfather used to call my grandmother his 'gummy bear' - when you understand that she could take out her false teeth, you can also understand why I suppressed that.
