Big Bite Gummy Bear

Remember when Godzilla first stomps his way into Tokyo? Picking up buses, throwing them down, weaving through the buildings toward the center of town? Well, that’s what we have today: the giant monster of the gummy bear forest. Your average gummy bear would be stunned in wide wonder to behold this thing, then run far, far away. The Big Bite Gummy Bear is 12 oz (most entire bags with dozens of gummy bears don’t weigh that much), and stands a mammoth three inches high.

And doesn’t this huge gummy bear kinda look monstrous? Glowing orange from some molten undersea origin, perhaps? Well… time to bite its face off.

After removing a band of plastic wrap, you need to pry away the two halves of a form-fitting, hard plastic mold that encase the beast. (Oddly, the mold has a lanyard loop; you could actually wear this thing as a necklace, I guess. Wow, that would hurt.)

Gnawing away at Big Bite’s head, I can report that this candy tastes like… an orange gummy bear. It’s your standard artificial orange flavor, not bad, not good. The texture is maybe a little stiffer than your average Lilliputian gummi bears.

Two things I don’t like about this huge gummy bear: 1) it has a film-like residue on its surface (maybe to assure it won’t stick in the mold) and 2) it’s too big! Unless you lost a bet, there’s no way you’d put this whole thing in your mouth at once (even if you could), so after each bite, you have to put the slightly slimy bear back in the mold. Then you have to handle the gelatinous mass some more the next time you want a bite. It’s just really not a pleasant eating process, and the taste isn’t good enough to make me want to continue.

After eating most of the Big Bite Gummy Bear’s orange face, I’m tossing this thing away. Let’s just hope he doesn’t come back to terrorize the citizenry. The Bear in the Iron Mask would not be a happy encounter in gummy bear forest.

So, if you want a novelty joke gummy bear or a strange and unique necklace, the Big Bite Gummy is perfect. For eating, not so much.

    The bear in your picture is labeled “cherry flavored” – did your cherry bear taste inexplicably like orange, or is the picture not your bear?

    I’ve tried a Blue Raspberry “Big Bite Gummy Bear” (Labeld “Giant Gummy Bear”) … UGH! That thing was just too much. A big Chewey blob of sugar! The good thing was, I could nibble, and then put it away in its plastic container to take a bite another day.

    That was a picture from the manufacturer’s website. We often take our own pictures, but also occasionally use manufacturer photos to illustrate our articles.

    Does it come in lime? I bet that’d look positively radioactive.

    I’ve been curious about these bears since I saw them at World Market. I always pick one up, walk around the store with it and put it down because my boyfriend always states that there’s no way I’d finish it and he wont help me (he thinks the concept is just too creepy) lol!

    But I think it would be cool, I’d feel like I was in the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory while I’m nibbling on its face =).

    My sister keeps a grape flavor one in the room.

    If I could get my hands on one, I would cut a few pieces off with a knife so the main bear wouldn’t get slimy when I put it back in.

    My brother gave me an orange one that was half eaten, (by him and his girlfriend) And I ADORED it! It does get a little slimy and sticky, (I ate his rear) but none the less, a real, self respecting treat! I’m going to see if I can use his case as a jello mold…
