@caffeineguy As with any product, if it’s not what you want, don’t buy it. These aren’t sold as fruit snacks. They’re sold as sweets (or candy if you don’t speak British). For those who want a gummy candy that doesn’t contain gelatin, and that isn’t primarily made of high fructose corn syrup, these are a decent option.
Hmmmm…$19 for one and a half pounds of sugar. But that’s for normal stuff; his is Harry Potter stuff. How heavy is a Harry Potter ounce? And does it do anything really really magical? And how does it effect muggles? I mean, do we have enough information? Of course, it has to be FDA approved, but they’re not going to claim magical capabilities because that would be subject to testing and would slow getting the product to market. So…are you willing to take a chance that these will be magical??
I got these with a Jelly Belly order in the past as a free gift, they’re really good. More importantly, my dad loved them (as he loves anything from Jelly Belly), and Father’s Day is coming up, so … ordered! Thanks, meh!
JK Rowling tweeted about an article titled “Opinion: Creating a more equal post-COVID-19 world for people who menstruate”.
In a rather tongue-in-cheek tweet, she said, “People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?”
The haters immediately started hating. Ms. Rowling’s response to the hate was the followig:
“If sex" (read gender) "isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth,” she tweeted. “The idea that women like me, who’ve been empathetic to trans people for decades, feeling kinship because they’re vulnerable in the same way as women—i.e., to male violence—‘hate’ trans people because they think sex is real and has lived consequences—is a nonsense.”
She continued, “I respect every trans person’s right to live any way that feels authentic and comfortable to them. I’d march with you if you were discriminated against on the basis of being trans. At the same time, my life has been shaped by being female. I do not believe it’s hateful to say so.”
@Trinityscrew she’s said plenty that’s not ok, and I suspect you know it. I already know it’s not worth arguing with you about, so I won’t. I’m only posting this so other people reading along at home know to do their own research before just buying your bs.
Even the statements you posted here are hurtful to many trans women. If you don’t have empathy, I have nothing for you.
@Seeds Nothing I printed is BS. It’s fact. And I would encourage everyone reading at home to look and see the things Ms. Rowling said. There isn’t any hate in her words.
the following quote is from AERO:
“Of course, to assume that Ms.Rowling’s missive would be engaged with in the spirit in which it was intended, is to make the mistake of imagining that the identitarian left is broadly committed to secular, rational discourse. It is not. Its activist component has transmogrified into a religious movement, which brooks no opposition and no discussion. You must agree with every tenet or else you’re a racist, sexist, transphobic bigot, etc. Because its followers are fanatics, Rowling is being subjected to an extraordinary level of abuse. There seems to be no cognitive dissonance among those who accuse her of insensitivity and then proceed to call her a cunt, bitch or hag and insist that they want to assault and even kill her.”
I used that quote because it sums up my feelings on the subject pretty well.
Mmmm if these were $1 each I’d be much more likely to bite. Half because I don’t know what I’d be in for, and I know slapping the names Jelly Belly and Harry Potter on something makes it suddenly worth more. Half because the Trolli Halloween candy I was getting from Dollar Tree covers my gummi cravings. Shame they seem to have finally run out, those Bats Cat’s and Rats were 4oz besides. Much mulling to be made over this. This is coming from so
@Tiamat114 Yeah but a lot of Dollar Tree stuff, especially candy, comes from China, and of unknown ingredients. These have the substantial benefit of coming from Jelly Belly and with almost “healthy” ingredients. Not saying they are a “health food,” but they focus on having non-evil colors and additives.
Jelly Belly had free shipping with $31 this weekend so I bought some stuff on sale. Love their mellowcremes and the bridge mix is the best I have had. This Harry Potter stuff seems pricey. It has been on sale off and on for over a year now.

@sillyheathen@stinks I mean, yeah it’s cute candy and it would gift nicely to my relatives who are still silly about HP. And there’s the biting the head of the candy bird. I will see how it looks in the morning.
also, around xmas i had a gelatin free bag of gummies somewhat accidentally and although the flavor was good the texture was really stodgy off putting stuff that just got mashed into your molars on the first chew. that was some kind of corn and chicory root fibers though, maybe the potato starch is better.
