EASTENDERS was tonight accused of “blatant racism” after Kat Slater mocked Habiba Ahmed’s name – by calling her “Haribo”. Viewers of the BBC soap saw loud-mouthed Kat, who is played by Jessie Wallace, yell: “Are you still here? Where’s Haribo?” Kat makes the ‘racist’ remark in tonight’s episode – as Stacey laughs She is corrected: “Habiba,” but Kat rudely replies: “Whatever”, before she and Stacey fall about laughing. One fan tweeted: “Absolutely disgusted that #EastEnders scriptwriters thought it necessary to use blatant racism against the character Habiba by having one of the Slater family refer to her as ‘Haribo’.” They added: “Honestly – in this day and age?” Another tweeted: “Did Kat Slater just say haribo instead of habiba @eastenders ethnic minorities have been dealing with this subtle racism for decades. How distasteful.” Iqra reacts to Kat’s comment with horror Viewers branded the insult on tonight’s show ‘distasteful’ [article-rail-section title=”Most read in TV & Showbiz” posts_category=”169″ posts_number=”12″ query_type=”popular” /] A third harked back to the Big Brother racism controversy of 2007, where Jade Goody was castigated for referring to actress Shilpa Shetty as “Shila Poppadom”. They tweeted: “If Jade Goody got called racist for calling shilpa shetty shilpa papadom surely kat calling that girl haribo is racist.” Another referred to the broadcasting watchdog, predicting: “Well kat calling her haribo is going to get some complaints to ofcom.” EastEnders bosses introduced Iqra and Habiba Ahmed as a new pair of characters who will take revenge on Mick Carter. Habiba and Iqra Ahmed joined the soap as the nieces of show legend Masood The pair, played by Priya Davdra and Rukku Nahar, are nieces of the show’s recently-departed favourite Masood, played by Nitin Ganatra. The characters have wasted little time making enemies, tonight getting on the wrong side of Kat and the rest of the Slater family.

The Weirdest Gummy Bear

Can you eat an entire bag of gummy bears in one sitting? If so, perhaps you need the weirdest gummy bear. At 5 full pounds – the equivalent of 20 quarter-pound hamburgers – it’s the candy that keeps on giving.

Gummy bears have been around for nearly a century. In 1920, German candy-maker Hans Reigel launched the Haribo company. According to various reports, Reigel was inspired to create gummy bears after observing trained bears performing street acts in Europe. Shortly thereafter, the Haribo company released its now-famous gummy bears.

What’s amazing is that the weirdest gummy bear features the same shape and overall appearance as the gummy bears produced by the Haribo company nearly a century ago. Available in a variety of flavors, including cherry and blue raspberry, it consists of a massively large gummy that’s shaped like a sitting bear. You can even see the bear’s nose, whiskers, eyes, ears, and limbs.

Don’t get too hooked on its cute-and-cuddly appearance, however. Like smaller gummy bears, the weirdest gummy bear is completely edible – and it’s quite delicious if you have a sweet tooth. It has a fruity flavor that’s reminiscent of the same gummy bears you probably ate as a child.

If you’re thinking about buying the weirdest gummy bear, though, you shouldn’t eat it all in one sitting. With 5 pounds of sugar-filled edible gummy, it contains approximately 6,120 calories, which is about three times the total recommended daily caloric intake for most adults. To protect your waistline, it’s recommended that you spread it out by eating a small portion at a time.

You might be wondering how you’re supposed to eat such a massive gummy bear. Unlike the smaller gummy bears, you can’t just toss it in your mouth. Instead, you’ll probably need to use a fork and knife to eat it. Just slice a small chunk off and wrap the remainder in plastic wrap to preserve it.

According to the manufacturer, the weirdest gummy bear is a gluten-free product, meaning it doesn’t contain any of the grain-based protein known as gluten. This is important if you suffer from a gluten sensitivity or celiac disease, in which case consuming gluten could trigger digestive problems.

The weirdest gummy bear is the perfect gift for anyone who enjoys this nostalgic candy. Not only does it look the same as traditional gummy bears; it has the same taste. The only real difference is that it’s about 1,400 times larger.

Last year me and my son were all about enjoying the TV show “StrangerThings,” and this year, we watched almost all episodes of “The Office” which he enjoys these days. Yes, we laugh and share as best friends! We grow together, and this friendship is the gift that I offer to my kids every year in a renewed version.

This is not a creative writing piece, but a real life post. The Weight of My Weight I have always been average. At school, if someone ever asked something I liked about myself, the answer would always be “I can make people laugh”. It was never “that I’m funny”, but that other people would find […]

Five Things About Cancer

People often ask me, “what does it feel like when you’re having chemo?” It’s a difficult experience to put into words, but basically think of the worst hangover you’ve ever (and I mean EVER) had, combined with the nastiest flu virus, multiply that by ten and you’re somewhere near. Chemo feels like having every muscle, […]

I think one of the greatest ironies in life is that the better my life is- stable, happy in love, work, friends, experiences… the worse my anxiety becomes.

Set The Tape

Club 85 in Hitchin is something of an odd little place. It’s easy to miss, not exactly jumping out as a music venue, perched as it is above a fairly nondescript pub at the bottom of a residential street that has the look of having been a working men’s club or the like at some […]

Birthday Cake For Breakfast

I was reminiscing on the way to tonight’s show about seeing Chvrches at the now defunct Ruby Lounge almost six years to the day! Although I’d heard a smattering of tunes on record, it was that show which made me realise just how brilliant this Glaswegian trio are at writing electro-pop smashes. Needless to say, […]
