It’s all you hear about on TV these days. Kids are bringing Vodka Soaked Gummy Bears to school and getting wasted. Well, why should they have all the fun? Silly rabbit, getting intoxicated is for adults. We sat around and thought, “Hey, we need to find out what the vodka gummy bears craze is all about”. One thing we discovered is no way can kids eat these and not have the smell of vodka all over their breath. Another thing we found is that you can get a good happy buzz from the alcoholic bears, but you’re not going to get fall down drunk. Without further delay, here’s our own tutorial on how to make vodka gummy bears.
Vodka Soaked Gummy Bears
- 12 oz gummy bears
- ½ cup vodka
You’ll want to start soaking your gummy bears in vodka about two days before you plan to use them. You might need to add a little bit more vodka, or gummy bears, depending on how they look after the first day. Basically, you just mix the vodka and gummi bears together in a flat Tupperware container and stir them up every so often. Some people put them in the refrigerator, but I think that isn’t going to make much difference. If you try soaking your gummis in a cup, as I originally did, they aren’t going to soak up the liquor like they should. Stay with a flat container so your vodka spreads evenly, and check and see how they look after a day.
Keep an extra bag of gummy bears on hand, in case your vodka soaked gummy bears look too slimy after they soak overnight. By the end of the second day, your vodka gummy bears should have increased on size and be portable. Enjoy a handful and get your buzz on!
Vodka Soaked Gummy Bears Are All Over the News
Yeah, we’ve all heard the controversy about kids taking vodka gummy bears to school and getting plastered. This probably does happen, but personally, I would be a lot more concerned about other trends such as pharming parties, where kids make a sort of “jungle juice” out of their parents’ prescription drugs, or Purple Drank, which is another pharmaceutical based high. We’ve seen kids passed out in the middle of the street on the purple sizzurp plenty of times here, in Citrus Heights, Roseville, and Elk Grove. Hey, at least be glad your youngsters aren’t trying vodka soaked tampons yet. Ouch.
