Be careful what you leave in your car

  1. Jun 11, 2005 #1
    It's like 100 degrees in my car with the windows up right now, and I just noticed that my 3 lb. bag of gummy bears is now a liquid blob. I can't find a face or paw in the entire bag. I learned the hard way so you guys don't have to.

    Yes, tragedies like this have, at least, salvagability as cautionary tales.

    Sorry for your loss, Gridlock.

    Ouch, what a depressing story: If there is anyway in which we can help, feel free to ask.

    As summer approaches, we must all remember this preventable tragedy. (don't leave bottled juice in the car either, trust me on this)

    I'm more of a Swedish Fish person myself, but being in the same gummy line, I can empathies.
    Also don't leave cherry/berry scented candles in your car in this heat :yuck:
    I wonder how long before the smell dissipates?

    Just pour it into a Teflon pan and get a gummy bear-shaped cookie cutter.

    Look on the bright side: Your nocturnal back-seat activities will no longer be so immediately noticeable.

    I remember a video rental place that displayed a warped and twisted video cassette as a reminder to not leave rented videos sitting on the dashboard.

    Did u guys see myth busters. They left some cookie dough (i think) in a car under high heat (simulating sunlight). The cookie dough actually exploded (due to chemical reactions or something).
