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…

Swedish Fish: Why Are They Called That?

Swedish Fish – “A Friend You Can Eat” With a tagline like that, you can expect the history behind Swedish Fish to also be weird. For those who have been living under a rock, Swedish Fish are a gummy candy shaped like a fish. They are most famous for their red flavor, but they come…

Maynards Sour Cherry Blasters

Maynards Sour Cherry Blasters [Review]

Cherry: A controversial candy flavor… Basically a throw-in when I ordered 3 sets of Maynards candies, I was skeptical of their Sour Cherry Blasters. Cherry is a polarizing flavor, for understandable reasons. Often times, cherry candies come off tasting more like cough syrup than an actual sweet.  Other times, they taste like nothing. I’ve had…

More importantly, will non-Yo-Kai…

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…
