What will teens come up with next? From Detroit to Dallas, the latest effort to sneak booze into their system is via gummi candy–bears, worms, or Halloween rats–the shape is of little importance. What matters is that this is a way to “drink” straight vodka, which is absorbed by the Gummis after soaking them in a glass or bowl of vodka. And presto–the Gummi Bears are now “Boozy Bears.”
Difficult for parents, teachers and even cops to detect, the Gummis pack a potent punch of booze, which can be dangerous. How-to sites and You Tube videos provide simple instructions for kids seeking to concoct these alcohol-infused treats. So parents beware–if you have a teen who is suddenly craving lots of Gummi bears, you may want to taste one first.
