The History of Haribo Gold Bears

Haribo Gold Bears & The History of Gummy Bears!

The timeless classic: gummy bears. One of the most popular candies in the world, it’s kind of odd when you really start thinking about it. Why do we eat bears in the first place? Even something like Swedish Fish makes more sense because humans DO eat fish. We certainly don’t eat bear meat. So what…

Haribo Sour Gold Bears

Haribo Sour Gold Bears [Review]

It should be a match made in heaven, as regular readers know I’m a sour-fiend. But what you may not know is that I also hold Haribo Gold Bears in high regard. What they do that differentiates their gummy bears from normal ones (in my opinion) is their consistency. They are a little tougher and therefore…

Haribo Bärchen-Pärchen - Review

Haribo Bärchen-Pärchen [Review + Meaning!]

This is the second bag of Haribo gummies that I bought while in Switzerland. They caught my eye because I’ve never seen them in the U.S., and they had a giant Neu sticker on it, which made me think that they were, well, New. What does Bärchen-Pärchen mean? Google translate tells me that Bärchen-Pärchen means Bear Couple….

Haribo Orangina Pik - Review

Haribo – Orangina Pik [Review]

Today and Friday, I’ll review some Haribo gummies that I bought while in Switzerland. First up is Orangina P!k. I know Orangina is a fizzy orange drink that’s available in Europe. No idea what the P!k means (and why it’s not a Pik). Haribo, of course, is a candy brand that is found all over…

Haribo Smurfs

Haribo Smurfs [Review]

I once bought Haribo Smurfs waaay back in 2009, when I was on vacation in France. There, they were Haribo Schtroumpfs, which was fun to say. I’m pretty sure I drove my boyfriend crazy going, “Schtroumpfs schtroumpfs schtroumpfs” for a good chunk of that trip. While they’ve been popular in Europe for a while, Haribo…

Haribo Ginger Lemon Gummi Candy - Review

Haribo Ginger-Lemon Gummis [Review]

I first saw Haribo Ginger-Lemon Gummis at the Sweets and Snacks Expo back in 2012. I got to taste a sample then, but they didn’t have any that I could take with me, so I wasn’t able to review them then. Since then, I’d been keeping an eye out for them in the wild. A…

Haribo Nappar Fruit

Haribo Nappar Fruit [Review + Meaning!]

I received these Haribo Nappar Fruit as a gift from a friend who got them from Europe. Instead of one big bag, I got several tiny bags that reminded me of fruit snacks bags. Haribo is pretty good at putting unintentionally hilarious mascots on its products. Remember Maoam? The Nappar Fruit mascots are just high-fiving, but they…

Haribo Brixx - Review

Haribo Brixx [Review]

I bought this bag of Haribo Brixx at a dollar store. The same one where I bought Haribo Clown Fish and Pico-Balla. Thankfully, they weren’t as terrible as the others, but they definitely aren’t my favorite Haribo product. The Brixx are very cute little rectangles with six smaller white rectangles of fondant running through the…
