Gummy Worms (category: Things We Made, ???)

“They're harvested once they reach adulthood, but before they reach sexual maturity. We don't want any eggs in consumers' stomachs,” he said, pulling a multicolored worm out of the cadaver with a pair of tongs. "The process is all very efficient. They’re cleaned, bagged, sealed, and they suffocate soon after they leave the factory.”

“What if there is a hole in the bag?” the trainee asked.

“That rarely happens. Cellophane is surprisingly durable.” For emphasis, he produced a freshly sealed bag and held it out for the trainee to observe. The gummy worms were wriggling erratically in their death throes.
