Why these are still on the market is beyond me. Never have I experienced stomach pains like it. And I was constantly up and down on the toilet. Wish I had read the reviews first before buying them but then who would of thought you could purchase sugarless lollies that would give you so much grief. They should be BANNED! And to add insult to injury they charge you over the top price for 90g
Appendicitis or gastro?
I rate three stars out of 5 because I cant rate 2.5. Great taste, very moorish. A bit pricey, I'm not constipated I know that for sure. Thought i had appendicitis in the middle of the night. Lots of gurgling, lots of bum wee's. Thought I had gastro for a week after. Thanks DD. My son asked me for one this morning for his birthday on his way to school. What harm could that do, these might be a winner. He thinks they're real lollies but jokes on him.... they're sugar free. Mum 1 kid 0. That was before someone posted a link on my keto support gr...oup page to the ratings and reviews. He is yet to return. I bet he has gastro too. Lmao. Poor kid. Mum 0 kid 0 These should be sold in a chemist for "blocked pipes" of you catch my drift. Which by the reads here, everyone does.
Purchased in February 2021 for A$3.99.
Destroyed my butt
These lollies are lethal. I was left peeing out my bum and in constant pain. I have not left the toilet. My poor boyfriend had to listen to what he described a boat bilging out water. I would not recommend. Should be illegal. EAT AT OWN RISK.
Absolutely Horrifying DO NOT BUY
This product should be banned, i bought them for the first time and i had no idea they had laxatives in them. Which is really bad, i've experienced some awful side affects and they last a long time. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.
Awesome substitute for the orig that are full of sugar but omg the toilet loves you after consuming such a small qty!
Tastes the same as original gummy bears just without all the sugar! It's awesome. However if you consume too many all at once then your toilet will definitely love you!
Double D’s, Diets and Diarrhoea
Someone on the Facebook support group I belong to recently posted about their experience after consuming DD lollies, and it brought back rather painful, and humiliating memories of my own ordeal. Looking back on it now, I can sort of see the humour in it, especially after reading some reviews on line. So I thought I would dedicate a entry in my blog to all of those who have lived through their own DD diarrhoea disaster. Here is my story:
For someone with a sweet tooth such as myself the hardest part about a diet is not being able to eat sweets.... For those times when you are relaxing in front of the TV or reading a book and your hand reaches for chocolates or lollies. I was like that. Evenings were the worst. I just had to be nibbling on something. Trouble is when you go to bed around 7pm or so every night to watch your favourite mindless reality TV show, or a few episodes of your favourite TV series on DVD the old habits of wanting to nibble on something are still there. Yes, I do have my Optifast chocolate bar in the evenings, but even after that I still feel the need to nibble. Sometimes cherry tomatoes just don’t cut it you know? And one thing I discovered was that there were sugar free lollies available at the local supermarket, or by ordering on line. Now because it has artificial sweeteners in it there is a small bit of writing on the back warning you that excessive consumption may cause a laxative effect or upset stomach. Note the keyword is ‘may cause’. Another key word ‘excessive’. Remember that. The day I bought them I was looking forward to chilling out while watching The Walking Dead series on DVD and nibbling a few gummy bears. After all, what could be more pleasant while watching zombies munching away on living flesh with the associated blood, gore and screams, than biting the heads off a few gummy bears and chewing their bodies? So there I was that evening, enjoying a few sweet treats and watching my show. I hadn’t eaten too many, maybe 5 or 6 so I had confidence that my gut could easily handle it. All was good and I enjoyed a pleasant nights sleep as usual. The next morning my stomach felt a little, well, off. Some mild cramping type pains that weren’t too bad, although the flatulence that accompanied meant I was not pleasant to be around. Still, my partner was out shopping that morning, and that only left me with the dog and cats.
- Verified purchase
This product should be banned! Bought a few different varieties of the Double D sugar free lollies. Decided to break my 20hr fast with 5 gummy bears and 10 fruit jellies. Less than an hour later I was feeling the laxative effects which lasted 14hrs. I Stupidly thought I had caught gastro. So a couple of days later and here we are back on the toilet with diarrhea and stomach cramps after finishing the pack of fruit jellies. I can't believe this product is allowed to be sold in supermarkets!
If you like gastric rumblings and uncontrollable diarrhea you've found the right product
Like many of the other reviewers here I was excited to find these sugar free lollies apparently sweetened by stevia according to the messaging on the front of the packet. Ate about 6 or 7 and my stomach started to rumble within 30 minutes. Within an hour I was on the toilet wondering why week felt like wee was coming out of my bottom. The marketing on these really needs to be addressed. They are potent laxatives. They contain isomalt as their primary ingredient.
