Teenage thief allegedly steals and eats the ‘world’s hottest’ gummy bear and faces immediate consequences

ODESSA, Texas (KMID/KPEJ) — A Texas pharmacy took to Facebook this week in response to an alleged incident in which a teenager reportedly stole a Lil’ Nitro — described as “the world’s hottest jelly bean” — and eaten – and suffered the consequences almost immediately.

The operators of Sunflower Rx in downtown Odessa said they hope the teenager has learned his lesson.

In the Facebook post, Sunflower Rx operators said the teen and his friend visited the store on Monday, October 3 and quickly left. A short time later, the suspect is said to have run back into the store sweating and got himself an iced tea. He then threw himself on the ground, prompting staff to ask if they should call an ambulance.

“Please don’t,” he said, according to the pharmacy’s Facebook post. “I’m fine, I just ate something very spicy.”

When asked if staff should try to call the boy’s parents, he again said no. But he asked for a trash can, fearing he might throw up.

A “very cute girl” then walked into the store – the pharmacy staff thought it might be his sister – and removed the boy from the store. According to the Facebook post, she also offered to pay for the tea.

Once outside, staff said they watched the teen “heave” the entire sidewalk.

The girl then returned to the store, bought a Powerade for the teenager and reportedly tried to explain that the boy had just eaten something spicy on an empty stomach.

After the teens left, staff noticed that a Lil’ Nitro gummy – advertised as “World’s Hottest Gummy Bear” – was missing from the shelf.

Flamethrower Candy’s super-spicy snack is said to be 900 times hotter than a jalapeno and, according to the packaging, measures 9 million on the Scoville scale. The box also warns against keeping the jelly bean within reach of children and pets, and advises those with heart or respiratory conditions not to eat it.

“We just brought out most of our inventory yesterday,” the store wrote in its Facebook post. “I remember thinking those bears might be a problem. Anyway, it was five, and now it’s four.”

Sunflower Rx operators said they will not be filing charges against the alleged thief and addressed him directly in their Facebook post.

“I hope you’re feeling better, but not so much that you haven’t learned anything,” the post reads.
