Have you ever tried to eat an entire package of Gummi Bears in 60 seconds? It sounds super easy, doesn't it? You can polish off those things pretty quickly, and then go hunting for more!

Crispy M&Ms Return to Shelves This January [Video]

First there was a Surge. Online petitions, call-ins and more eventually convinced a multi-billion-dollar company like Coca Cola to finally release the green soda to the masses.

It has succeeded on epic levels.
