Dear Swedish Fish,
You have earned both my endless gratitude and deep, seething hatred for being one of the few gummy candies readily available at gas stations that contain no gelatin. For a vegetarian, gummy-loving fool like me, you are crack. But you are also terrible for my teeth, and sometimes I eat a whole bag of you in one sitting and then my belly feels like it has a big, hard gummy rock in it. STOP BEING SO DELICIOUS, SWEDISH FISH. And please never leave me.
