Haribo Gummie bears in 5 lb. packs

I had no idea. I almost drooled at the thought of having one of these 5 pound bulk bags of Haribo Gummi bears sitting on my table.

Reality soon set in. What if I actually had one of these giant bags of Haribo bears? Would my taste buds soon reject the idea of consuming 5 pounds, or the equivelant of 16 “normal” mini bags of Haribo bears, despite being the best damn gummi bears in the world?! Would it be the beginning of the end? Would I slowly grow tiresome of the perfectly chewy confections?

Only a real world experiment could answer these questions. For that reason, I’ve added the bears to my Amazon wishlist. I can easily prevent myself from stuffing myself with 5 pounds of candy, but it would be oh so rude of me to deny a bag sent from someone else. Besides, I failed miserably to make a dent of the 5 pound bag of chewy strawberries.

    Just think though – think of the challenge that is consuming 5 pounds of gummi bears. Surely worthy of the attempt?

    A very cool wish-list item, might I add.

    Feel free to send those strawberries this way… ;-)

  3. Well Derek,
    I once bought a 6 pound bag of gummi bears, and well to make a long story short, I still can barely eat the little guys. :( I love gummi bears, but not anymore. I recommend you stick with the little bags, or only eat a little bit at a time.

    I swear you’ll get tired of the berries. I’m pretty sure I won’t get tired of the Haribo bears though. They’re just so damn good.
