    I made the gummy bears last year for a party and they were a HUGE hit! I wonder if the sour would “melt – for lack of a better word” off of the sour patch kids…worth a try, maybe just a shorter soaking period?

    Ohhh fun I used to love making drunken gummy bears in college! I recently did it with pineapple and it was pretty tasty πŸ™‚ I wonder if sour patch kids would soak it in as much, I say try it!

    omg please let us know how the bears turn out! I love that idea! And I’ve never seen a custom finisher tee before, however I’ve also never run a marathon before either!

    one time my friends and i made drunken gummy bears, and they soaked up the alcohol and expanded to become HUGE and really gummy! also, don’t toss the liquid they’re soaking in-it’s going to be really sugary but we “re-used” it as a mixer for our next round of drinks πŸ™‚

    I would TOTALLY buy that shirt. What a fun, memorable idea!

    And “rummy bears” as we called them in college were a staple back in the day ; )

    Never tried alcohol-soaked gummi bears, but they sound yummy!

    I love the finisher’s shirt idea and have never seen any other race that does that. The drunken bear idea is great. Let us know how they turn out!

    I love the idea of a custom finisher shirt, never gotten one of those before! I’m a fan of the tech tees, and am always excited to get one when I sign up for a race πŸ™‚

    I would be interested to know if the “sour” washes off of the sour patch kids while the soak.

    ive never made gummy bears like that and am wondering why right now. but i did make jello shots with that same sort of whipped vodka and they were amazing.

    Sour patch kids would be fantastic! I don’t have an event to make them any time soon so would it be bad if I just made them for myself? πŸ™‚

    I think the sugar would definitely “melt” off the sour patch kids – but it would make the leftover liquid extra yummy!

    Haha the gummi bears remind me of when one of my roommates tried to soak a bag of them in vodka, but she left the bag in her car and they melted into one big gummi mass. She still tried to put them in vodka, but they looked so disgusting that no one would touch them.

    I don’t know how I feel about sour patch kids in whipped cream vodka and I’m not sure what would happen with the sugar on the outside, but they might work.

    I’ve seen the drunken bears on Pintrest! I have yet to try them but love the concept.. Usually My husband makes drunken cherries for July 4th each year- and they are always a big hit!

    I’ve never seen a custom finisher tee before, but I would most likely buy it. Especially if I got a really good time or made a PR. It’s kind of cute.

    I love the drunken gummy bears idea. I’m going to have to try it one day.
