My brief addiction to Fruit Gushers

In the 1990s I went through a brief but intense addiction to Fruit Gushers. It started simply enough, a friend gave me a bag of the grape. I was hooked. Soon I was going through a box a day of those purple gems. I knew I was in a bad way when I woke up one night and at the fit of my bed I saw these guys.


It turns out it was just the commercial running on the TV I had left on all night, but the message was loud and clear. I had a problem and I quit the Fruit Gushers cold turkey after that.
