@firefliet: You're an idiot. Exothermic and endothermic are exothermic and endothermic ONLY. Product favored means that different brands of gummy bears (thus, a different make-up) will change the reaction. Obviously, a gummy bear with more carbon and less oxygen is going to produce more gas, and one with more H2O and less C02 is going to produce more water.
And, for the record, I know that post was over 2 years old. Never too late to get schooled, however.

"Product favored" means that the rxn is exothermic. It's easier to get rid of energy than take it in (same way it`s easier to give away crap than get free crap, lol), so the forward rxn is easier than the reverse, which would require mounds of energy to be put into it.
