It's actually true.  They included an ingredient called Lycasin.  For the average adult, the Kraken gets unleashed after eating about 15 gummies.  Some of these stories are so funny.  I actually laughed out loud at cried a little last night.  I dont know why stories about people shtting themselves to death were so funny.  Slow news day I guess.

It's actually the sugar alcohol that gives you the explosive results. Lycasin is made from Maltitol, a sugar alcohol. Anything with Maltitol will cause frequent trips to the can.

I have to agree, thats some good reading there..lol

Yea, Lycasin is just a trade name for the sugar alcohol sweetner substitute malitol. I'm not sure if Harribo has discontinued manufacturing the sugar free Gummi Bears, but major distributors such as Amazon, Walgreens, CVS, etc. no longer stock them. Not a problem however as those distributors and many others continue to stock essentially the same product under the brand names of other manufacturers.

 

I asked my GI doc about the issue after after a friend of mine had an incident while munching on a bag of Gummi Bears at a stage play one evening. Not a pretty ending, but a hilarious one. The doc said that consuming around 40 grams of malitol in a relatively short period of time would essentially create "ignition", and that "liftoff" would occur at around 50 grams. Considering that the 5 lb. bag the commenters are referring to converts to about 2,270 grams, there's a very long and turbulent journey ahead.

I'm all to familiar with the effects of sugar alcohol. I had weight loss surgery 8 yrs ago, and I was warned about there explosive effects.
I've been a victim, but not to the extent of your friend. I happened to be home, so only casualties were my pride and skivvies. Lol
