So this nice person representing Haribo contacts me and offers to send me some free gummi bears to sample and blog about, including a bunch of coupons to pass on to a few lucky readers. Goodie goodie gumdrop!
"What up, my gummi from anotha mummy?"
"Just chillaxing and gettin' ready for our big appearance on a world-famous health-and-fitness blog."
"Really? I thought we were to set to go on that Jack Sh*t site."
"Whatever! Anyway, we're thinking about trying out our new Care Bear routine. Remember that old show?"
"Gummi Bear Countdown, 4, 3, 2, 1
Who's that comin' from over in that bag?
Makin' snacktime fun instead of a drag
Just when you think that hunger's gonna pounce.
Only eight calories apiece, according to reliable counts.
Do the Gummi Bear Countdown
We'll send some free ones, I'm happy to announce..."
"Whoa, whoa, whoa. What's going on here?"
"Oh, look who it is. The guys that THINK they're candy but aren't..."
"Shut up, gumass. This is a weight loss and healthy living site. What are you doing HERE?"
"Look, we're a reasonably healthy snack food. As our PR person would tell you, even the best fitness regimen should allow for small rewards. However, it’s important to make sure your sweets are 'sweat-approved' so you aren’t stunting your progress."
"You can have 11 Haribo Gold-Bears, the original tasty, fruity, chewy gummi bears, for only 75 calories, giving you enough sweet to satisfy plus energy to burn! In moderation, they can be a nice treat in an overall healthy diet."
"Hey, that does sound healthy!"
"Let's just take a look-see at your ingredients list..."
"Hey, this is OUR blog post! Jack got us for FREE!"
"So you're only 8 calories apiece, huh? How many calories for just half?"
"Ayyyyyyy! Run away!!!!!!"
"Ummmmm... this isn't how this was supposed to go..."
I guess you can eat some gummi bears if you want to...
I mean... nobody's stopping you...
But I just don't know how I feel about giving out a bunch of coupons for free ones...
Anyway... thanks, Haribo...
..but no thanks.
Ooooooooo... I never made coupon smoothie before. How many calories in that?
Since I promised a giveaway, I'll send one lucky commenter a free bottle of Lil' Critters Gummy Vites. There are some rules, but you're going to have to guess what they are...
Disclaimer: Haribo did not pay me for this review.
THE DAILY SCALEY
I lost almost a gummi bear's worth!
