LOS ANGELES - The executives at Haribo cannot believe the sudden surge in sales of Gummy Bears.
The small fruit gum candy got a huge boost when American Idol judge Keith Urban gave Harry Connick, Jr. a huge blue Gummy Bear during the live results show of American Idol.
Harry quickly took the blue Gummy Bear and bit off its left ear. Jennifer Lopez then snatched the treat from Harry and she bit off its belly button.
Keith just grinned and said that he would pass since he did not want to get any germs.
Host Ryan "Peaches" Seacrest walked up to the judges table, looked at Keith, and replied, "Dude. Don't tell me you're like that silly germaphobic Howie Mandel of America's Got Talent."
Urban, visibly embarrassed grabbed the giant Gummy Bear and bit off the blue treat's left sneaker.
Jennifer then said that she wanted to take the giant Gummy Bear home for her boy toy Casper Smart who is 18 years younger than her and likes to eat Gummy Bears, Twizzlers, and jalapeño flavored Jelly Beans.
