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

My brother used to ruin everything that I baked. He picked the pecans off a pecan pie. He ate half a cake that was for a birthday party. After years of this I bought some chocolate laxatives. I told him not to eat the chocolate because it was special. It was gone faster than I thought was possible. Later that night he wanted to go to the hospital. I had to confess. He got in more trouble than I did.

Why would people stop taking things from your bowl if they didn’t know your candy was the source of the problem? You know and I know...but, they didn’t find out, so this was really kind of a revenge story.

During exam time at school (35 years ago) some one nicked a pack of my sugar free cool mints. He must have eaten them all in one go. 20 minutes into the exam he had to go to the loo, accompanied by a teacher to make sure he wasn't cheating on the exam. He never made it back. I felt sorry for the teacher. Being used to sorbitol, I could eat 4 or 5 mints in a day without harm. As a sorbitol virgin this guy was doomed at 3 at once, let alone a whole pack. Karma

Even if they figured out it was the gummis, you could still say that someone "with virus contaminated hands" must have touched the gummis, thereby transferring the stomach bug to all the others who ate from your same bowl. This was a diabolical plan, indeed!

At first, I thought that he had mixed some laxatives with the gummy bears to punish the would-be-thieves. Then, after reading other posts in this thread, I realised it was the gummy bears themselves that were this evil. Searching on Amazon right now to see if they sell them in my country. I've a few people in mind i'd gift them to.

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 . . . . . . .

NOT JUST HARIBO GUMMY BEARS!!! I purchased a container of sugar free meringue cookies. Since they were sugar free I ate a shit-ton of them. Guess what? 2 days of reversing a shit-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????
