SAN DIEGO - One of the largest counterfeit item busts in the history of the San Diego Department of Customs sector has just taken place.
U.S. Customs agents seized 900,000 counterfeit gummy bears that were produced in Tijuana, Mexico, and were bound for Los Angeles.
The gummy bears were found in an 18-wheeler whose manifest showed that it was loaded with Aye Caramba Beer.
According to gummy bear expert, Roberto Vino, the 900,000 fake gummy bears looked very much like the real ones. The only difference was that the fake gummy bears tasted a little bit like hot sauce.
The entire contents were turned over to Customs officials from Washington D.C. who will take the 900,000 counterfeit gummy bears and place them in a warehouse in the nation's capitol.
SIDENOTE: When asked what will become of the 900,000 gummy bears a governmental official who did not want his name mentioned said that they will most probably be sold to Syria.
