This sounds like a Today I fucked up I read about someone consuming too many mints and it having the same effect. Pretty odd.

I'm not completely sure, but I think it's only sugar free cough drops that do that. I read it somewhere.

This is so good to know! *goes out and buys as many mints, cough drops, and honey as I can find* What? I've uh... I'm having a really bad week.

1) joke. 2) Why would I be excited to learn about a laxative when I'm having a really bad week? Probably extreme constipation! Sorry the joke wasn't obvious enough for you. I'll stick to knock knocks in the future to not confuse you.

If I remember correctly, it's due to the artificial sweetener sorbitol. Human digestive systems don't tolerate it well.

"sugar free" candies aren't actually sugar free, they just use sugars that our body can't process such as certain alcohol sugars. These collect in your lower digestive tract and once they hit a certain concentration, boom. Poop time.

Cough drops are medicated. Like any other medicine, you should definitely read the package before you take any. It tells you on the bag not to exceed a certain amount of drops per day.

Anything that is sugar free (like cough drops) can have this effect. Sugar free products like gum and stuff use xylitol as a sweetener, which in excess quantities can act as a laxative

it's true. Certain brands of sugar free gummi bears especially have a reputation for the havoc they wreak on your intestines
