LOOK: Most Disgusting Gummy Bear Ever Or Super Yummy Easter Treat?

With Easter right around the corner, candy stores are working overtime.

Middlebury Sweets in East Middlebury, Vt., has extended its hours to accomodate the chocolate-seeking crowds, owner Bianca Jenne told the Huffington Post on Friday. Most people are buying traditional candies like jelly beans and chocolate Easter bunnies, she said.

But for people looking to deck out their baskets with something different, the store is also selling one of the world's largest gummy bears -- who the store calls Big Bob -- for $150. But big ole Bob might need an extra big basket: He weighs 26 pounds and has around 30,000 calories.
