We are living in a golden age when it comes to unlikely food combinations. PB& J chicken wings? Sure. Sour Patch Kids cereal? Everybody’s talking about it!

Now it’s come to this. Gummi Bear Bratwurst.

Hey, we’re all for trying new things. In the mid-1980’s, Americans were skeptical of sushi! “Eat a raw fish?” people said. “We’ll be over here, living on the moon!” Now it’s a normal thing to see in your mid-sized grocery stores.

But come on.

This edible sign of the end times is the concoction of Tom’s Meat Market, in Hastings, Michigan. Posted to their Facebook page, they claim that “it’s actually really good!” Well, SURE Tom’s Meat Market! It’s fat and sugar! The two things our caveman brains crave more than anything! But to quote Jeff Goldblum in the 1993 documentary movie Jurassic Park, “Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.”

Where does this slippery slope lead? Chicken pot pie with CANDY corn? Hamburger buns with sprinkles? Chips ‘n dip, but the dip is just a tub of frosting?

Who are we kidding, we’re just upset we can’t buy it around here. Bring on the fire and brimstone!
