Remember those infamous pictures of Suri Cruise holding a box of gummy bears shaped like, uh, male genitalia? Well, Suri’s mom Katie Holmes remembers them and she reveals on an upcoming episode of Ellen that she was very upset when she saw her daughter playing with the prank candy.

So how did Suri happen to come across the man-part candies?

“I took [Suri] to get ice cream in New York at this place called Serendipity that we go to all the time,” explains Katie. “It’s for kids. The clientele is children. We go in and are waiting for a table and she grabs some gummies that are boy part gummies. I was horrified.”

Katie went on to explain that she originally thought that the gummies were Swedish Fish and she didn’t want to immediately grab the candies away from 4-year-old Suri because she knew it would spark “that conversation.”

The gummies did create quite a bit of controversy when they were released. Some more conservative critics claimed that Katie was ruining her child by allegedly feeding her genitalia candies. Of course, it is pretty unlikely that a young child like Suri even knew that the gummies she spotted would be a reason to create a controversy.

Watch Katie’s interview on Ellen on Friday, April 1.
