One of the worst days of my life,” “Help me," “The horror at 30,000 feet!” Taken out of their original context, these phrases might sound scary. Terrifying, even. However, you all know that it's all about the context, and in this case, it's actually a pretty hilarious one.

Long story short, it turns out that sugar-free gummies will most probably send you rushing to the bathroom. It's all because of the innocent-sounding sugar alcohol called maltitol, which is found in the ingredient called lycasin. Apparently, Haribo sugarless gummy bears are no exception when it comes to sugar alcohol, and boy, what a wild ride the Amazon review section for the gummies was.

For this list, we recommend you put away snacks and drinks because your appetite will probably be ruined in no time. Scroll down to read people's hilariously awful experiences with sugar-free Haribo gummies, and vote for the ones that made you laugh!

Are the Sugar-Free Gummy Bear Reviews Real?

To think of such horrible, vulgar things to say about a beloved brand and its products proves just how real the reviews truly are. Every single bad Haribo sugar-free review is almost 100% as real as any other review. To nail this fact further, the toxicity of the product even spread to more beloved products of the company.

People due for a colonoscopy might find these preferable to the gallon of liquid glorp they would otherwise have to drink. Either way, good luck if there's only one bathroom in the house and more than one person.

If those confections are so potent, why are they being sold...if no warning accompanies them........ if intended consumers are likely to be children, it could be serious for them if they should eat more than a couple...... what child would pig out on gummy bears regardless of sweetener...... we now know some adults have . . . . . . .

Do Sugar-Free Gummy Bears Taste Good?

Sugar-free products are known for tasting bad or different from sugared ones. Example? Original Haribo gummy bears. While the sugar-free version has an almost unending list of reviews pointing out the horrible taste, the originals are kinder. So, looking at sugar-free gummy bear reviews alone, it’s easy to assume that taste makes a difference in quality.

NOT JUST HARIBO GUMMY BEARS!!! I purchased a container of sugar free meringue cookies. Since they were sugar free I ate a s**t-ton of them. Guess what? 2 days of reversing a s**t-ton ton of these from my body. OMG thought I turned myself inside out. In my defense the ingredients label was covered by another label. You know.; the place where it states "excessive consumption may cause a laxative effect". Ya think????

Why Did Haribo Discontinue Sugar-Free Gummy Bears?

Are reviews not enough? Well, the product also made headlines in some of the most famous magazines in the world. According to Forbes, these gummy bears’ main “sugary” component, lycasin, can lead to nasty side effects, like stomach problems. In Haribo’s defense, the company did put a warning label.
