    Still no where close to the three wolves t-shirt comments on Amazon.

    Best moment of the day was when one of them (who had been in the bathroom for half an hour by that point) texted one of the others. “If you think it’s a fart….it’s NOT.”

    So..does the sugar free gummy bears really have this problem or did one person write a review like that and everyone followed suit (like the three wolves moon T-shirts)?

    I can attest to the fact that some sugar free candy should not be eaten in any kind a quantity. I did a few years ago and while it didn't happen quickly, I had the worst cramps I've had in my life and spent a good deal of time waiting for it to settle down. Trust me, it only takes once to learn that lesson.

    That is really strange that sugar free candies do this. So much for being the "better" option..

    The smaller bags of the same product have good review. It is just people messing around

    Sugar free candies use a sugar alcohol to add sweetness in place of sugar. It does cause gas and stomach issues.

    That was hilarious. I kind of wish we had more of the story but from the viewpoint of the CFO or flight attendant.

    No, it is a real issue. Trust me on that. Hard sugar free candy got me, but the way I pound gummy bears a bag at a time, I am very glad I haven't had the sugar free ones!
