Here's How Gummy Bears Just Sent 14 High School Students To The Hospital


If there was a Gummy Eaters Anonymous group, I’d be actively seeking weekly treatments for my candy addiction.

My sweet tooth knows no bounds when it comes to the different types of gummy goodness, but if I had to choose a favorite gummy candy, I’d have to go with the obvious choice: gummy bears.

And while eating too many gummy snacks may spoil your appetite or leave you with a bit of a tummy ache, I’ve never experienced anything quite like what these high school students just had to deal with.

Fourteen students from Naperville North High School in Naperville, Illinois, were hospitalized after eating gummy bears that may have been laced with drugs.
