A friend forwarded me a link to amazon.com about Haribo Gummi candy reviews. At first, I did not know Amazon sold gummy bears and that you could buy a 10 lb pound bag!! After getting over that shock I noticed something very odd, this candy had over 1,300 reviews. Why does gummy bears have that many reviews on Amazon?!? Then I started to read the reviews and they all had something in common, people were telling their experience of digestive torture that this candy had ensued upon them!!. There are reviews titled as “I have seen the face of God! . . .Wet-ing my pants, and alternate colonscopy prep”. These reviews are hilarious! And I was very surprised because I love gummy bears, but never noticed the candy bothering my stomach . . hmmm . . .
Anyway, I encourage all my fellow IBDers to read these reviews if you are in need of a good laugh. Not only are the reviews funny, but also relatable 😦 Below is an excerpt from my favorite review titled, “Do not bring to sporting events”
After the excitement of the 1st quarter has ended I take my son out to get him a bottled water and myself a beer. We return to our seats to enjoy our candy and drinks.
…………..fast forward until 1 minute before half time………..
I have begun to sweat a sweat that is only meant for a man on mile 19 of a marathon. I have kicked out my legs out so straight that I am violently pushing the gentleman wearing a suit seated in front of me forward. He is not happy, I do not care. My hands are on the side of my seat not unlike that of a gymnast on a pommel horse, lifting me off my chair. My son is oblivious to what is happening next to him, after all, there is a mascot running around somewhere and he is eating candy. I realize that at some point in the very near to immediate future I am going to have to allow this lava from Satan to forcefully expel itself from my innards. I also realize that I have to walk up 24 stairs just to get to level ground in hopes to make it to the bathroom . . . . http://www.amazon.com/review/R1JISL51M4FG0D
I’m pretty sure on this day he was suffering from this too . . . lol
I know at times i have the sense of humor of a 12 year old boy lol, but my 3 month colonscopy follow-up appointment is this week, and i’m very anxious . . . . . . sometimes you gotta laugh 🙂
