27-Pound Gummy Bear
Lately, we've been big on world records. First was Guinness World Record-certified "most expensive" hamburger by Serendipity 3. Then came the more expensive $666 Douche Burger, which blew Serendipity out of the water in terms of price.
Today we have for you (supposedly) the world's largest gummy bear. It's 27 pounds of gummy, which is the equivalent of 450 servings. The price tag: $149.95. Perhaps it'll even win the nomination for most expensive gummy bear.
The bear is called B.O.B, for Big Ol' Bear, and it's marketed as a versatile giant candy with 11 different flavors.
Gummy bear suggestions from the company:
1) Chew, Chew, Chew
2) Cool it in the fridge then cut fine slices with a knife (kids, get your parents to help). This is a great way to enjoy your gummy piece-by-piece and make it last.
3) Serve it as hors d'oeuvres at a party. (Use a knife to cut into cubes for a delicious conversation piece. )
4) Warm it up in the sun and have a stretch tug-of-war with a friend.
Now we're not sure if the fourth option is the best way to use up $149.95. Sounds like an expensive tug-of-war.
