This Woman Transforms Your Favorite Drinks into Giant Gummy Candies

While the rest of us have been content with simply drinking things like Powerade, Coca-Cola, and Starbucks iced tea, an increasingly popular YouTube channel demonstrates an unlikely use for whole bottles of the popular beverages: eating them. As enormous gummy candies. 

A user who goes by “Fluff Berry Puff,” which sounds like a PB&J-Fluffer Nutter hybrid, takes normal bottles of the drinks -- and with a few added ingredients and mixing -- transforms the liquid into giant gelatinous molds that you can cut with a knife and, presumably, eat in thick slices. That is, if you’re into eating your drinks. 

The Powerade gummy candy (above) is just one of many giant, jiggly things Fluff Berry Puff makes in the videos, including a similar Hawaiian Punch giant gummy, a Starbucks iced tea gummy, a rainbow Coca-Cola “pudding jelly,” among many others -- like "Hello Kitty Slime." When reached by email, Fluff Berry Puff (who didn't reveal her name) said viewer suggestions inspire her to figure out what can be made into gummies. As for how they taste...

"I wouldn't be able to tell you how they taste," Puff said. "I don't usually eat them. If I ate everything I made, I'd need to start a fitness channel lol."
