So hey guys I was searching for the top ten singers and I passed by this and then I read it then I got intrested and I kinda wanna show it to you guys…

10. Gummi Chandelier

http://www.trendhunter.com/trends/thousands-of-gummi-bears-used-to-create-elaborate-chandelier

I know, “chandelier” was the first thing I thought of after biting the faces  off of gummi bears, too.  Okay, just kidding.  The one on the left is  31 inches across and weighs 50 pounds. A design firm called Jellio made the “ball” of gummies.  It takes a 50-watt light bulb and is made from roughly  5000 acrylic gummies, which is sort of cheating.  The one on the bottom,  however, is 45 inches tall and 21 inches across of real candy goodness.   Both are quite pretty, though I have to admit Jellio might have the right  idea here.  The real gummies, though far tastier, probably attract more  than their share of fruit flies come summer time.  Getting those little  suckers to quit flying into your eye would constantly detract from the  décor.

9. Gummi Bearskin Rug

If puns were a crime (and they should be) this one would be a first-degree  aggravated pun.  Possibly even a hate-pun.  The candy is apparently  all old and unpalatable and further sprayed with lacquer to keep mice and ants from trying to eat  it. It is intended to be art though, so aside from not eating it, don’t wipe  your feet on it and don’t let the kids near it.

You know what? Just stop looking at it. It’s no doubt costing someone a  fortune.

8. Giant Gummi Bear

http://www.vat19.com/dvds/worlds-largest-gummy-bear.cfm

When I was a kid, I dreamed of a real-world Candyland,  with flowers made of frosting and a landscape straight out of an old World  Of Dairy Queen commercial.  I bring this up because this is like  someone reached into my childhood fantasies and pulled out a woodland beast.   Vat19.com offers this ridiculous five pound bear to the tune of $29.99, a  small price to pay for something that will make you the envy of your more  immature friends, as well as guarantee you’ll never want to see another  gelatin-based confection as long as you live, should you actually finish it.   Flavors include blue raspberry (shown), bubblegum, and pineapple.  But it’s not like anyone would do anything completely asinine like a nearly 30-pound… oh, I guess they did:

7. Giant Gummi Worm

http://gizmodo.com/5671286/the-worlds-largest-gummy-worm-is-wrong-on-so-many-levels

While my childhood dreams were populated by gummi bears as large as a small  dog, it did not serve as a home to these monsters.  They are 26 inches  long, 5 inches around, weigh 3 pounds apiece, and cost about 28 bucks.   Looking at them, I imagine they are also useful in preventing home  invasions or, conversely, performing a home invasion.

6. Giant Gummi Skull

http://giantgummybears.com/gummyskull.aspx

It’s available in 11 different flavors.  It’s life size.  It will  fill your children with terror and make the fat Goth kid down the street your  new best friend. It’s a five-pound gummi skull, and I think most people would  agree that if Nicolas Cage had been sporting one of these as a head, Ghost  Rider would have been 20 times shorter and 1000 times more watchable (hint:  sugar and fire have a short, spectacular relationship. (other hint: his head  would have melted.))

5. Gummi Fetus

http://psychexfutureheart.wordpress.com/2011/05/03/introducing-the-gummy-fetus/

…uhh…hmm…well…no, I can’t.  It’s just…I just…No.  I can’t.   The next one is actually less disturbing.

4. Gummi Dead Rat

http://www.sugarpressure.com/2010/10/gummy-rat-in-trap.html

For a lot of us, the gummi rat was the first “giant gummi” we ever  encountered.  Frankford Candy & Chocolate Company decided that in order  to make a truly complete Halloween treat out of the gummi rat, it had to be  caught in a trap, all smashed and bloody.  Kudos for not conforming to PC  standards and really sticking it to the man.  But I have to admit: this  could be made out of ambrosia from Mount Olympus itself, and I would have a hard  time taking a bite.  Plus, what is that in its mouth? Did it bite a piece  of cheese before meeting its maker, or did it barf on itself in  its death throes?  Considering the amount of blood, I am going to have to  go with death-barf.

3. Gummi Haggis

http://elkephant.wordpress.com/2008/05/

After gummi fetus and splattered rat, why not a  butterscotch-flavored gummi version of the meal that tells the rest of the world “don’t screw with the  Scotts; we eat this crap because of a long tradition of doing things to scare  the English the hell out of our country”?

2. Gummi Legos

http://www.instructables.com/id/LeGummies-brick-shaped-gummy-candies/

Finally, something not awful and scarring.  This is actually incredibly  cool; the gentlemen over at Instructables made these crafted silicone molds out  of real Legos, and made the gummies out of Jell-O and Knox gelatin.  So I  guess, technically, they are more like Knox-Blox Legos, but who cares?  You  could build a house, an airplane, or a space ship, and then eat it all as part  of pick-up time.  Remember that candy dream I mentioned?  It totally  should have had gummi Legos.

I couldn’t find pictures of anything actually built with them, but I can only  imagine it was equal parts fabulous and delicious, and the FDA says you can  never have too much of the former.

1. Giant Gummi Brain

http://nerdapproved.com/approved-products/10-zombie-products-that-will-make-you-scream-featured/

We had a gummi skull, and you can’t have skulls without brains, right?…I  might not have thought that through very well.  At any rate, this  bubblegum-flavored brain weighs in at about 6.5 pounds.  I doubt it would  do much to distract zombies from eating your own precious grey matter, but the  number of calories in it…isn’t very encouraging.  If you’ve seen  Zombieland, then you know how the chunkier people fare in a zombie  apocalypse.  But it looks cool, and that’s the most important thing,  right?
