Magical Haribo Gold Bears! #FridayRecommends

So we kept seeing this commercial:

I don’t even like Gummis. In fact, I hate them; I loathe them; I despise them.* But how could I resist? The next time I saw a bag, I bought it!

Haribo Gold-Bears

And you know what? After I bought the bag, the commercial stopped being on!

I ate them all up, sad that I couldn’t act out the commercial along with those sweet-faced actors. Threw away the empty bag.

The next day, the commercial started running again!

I bought another bag — AND THE COMMERCIALS STOPPED!

Fiendish! Now I’m gobbling the damn things as fast as I can go, so the commercial will come on again. Is that fiendish, magical, and amazing, or what? However do they do that?

* The tripartite declaration of dislike is, you may recognize, from “The Road to Rio,” one of my fave-rave Road movies, starring Hope, Crosby, and Lamour. I couldn’t find a clip of the sinisterly beautiful Gale Sondergaard hypnotizing poor Dorothy Lamour, but I give you this:

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: What does your main character hate, loathe, and despise? What would make them go to it/him/her/them like a bride to her lover?

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I liked the “On the Road…” movies. I’ll eat gummies if they’re there, but I don’ buy them. I love Maynards Winegums but hey are hard to find in the states. My friend in England introduced them to me several years ago. It’s probably a good thing I can’t find them. People with crowns and bridges probably shouldn’t eat things like that too often.

    Haribo is actually building a new factory right in my hometown in Wisconsin! Not sure how many jobs it will provide but kudos.
