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…

Nestle FruTips – Chinese Assortment

On Monday, I reviewed the mango, grapefruit, and lychee FruTips that I bought in China. Today, I’ll review their regular flavor assortment. The regular FruTips were the same size and texture as their specialized flavor counterparts, and they also contained lychee flavored jellies (white). You can refer to Monday’s review for my notes on texture…

Nestle FruTips – Mango, Grapefruit, and Lychee

As previously mentioned, I’m way overdue for a review of Nestle FruTips from China. When I was in Shanghai this March, I bought of couple of fresh tubes to cover today and Friday. I’ll start with the Mango, Grapefruit, and Lychee tube. The FruTips were thumbnail-sized flat disks that were covered in gritty sugar sand….

Albanese Gummi Fruit Slices

Albanese Gummi Fruit Slices [Review]

Emma recently visited the Albanese gummi factory and brought back oodles of gummi treats, including this peg bag of Albanese Gummi Fruit Slices. I hope that Albanese is moving towards selling their gummies in peg bags with a wider distribution – I haven’t seen them in NC yet! The wedge-shaped gummies were lightly striated with…

Kasugai Ramune Gummi - Review

Kasugai Ramune Gummi: Asian Soda Candy [Review]

I usually buy my Kasugai gummies at Asian grocery stores, but I found this bag of ramune flavored gummies at a Cost Plus World Market. If you’re not familiar with ramune (not to be confused with ramen!), it’s a lemon-lime Asian soda that’s usually kept in a uniquely marble-stoppered bottle. Like all Kasugai gummies, these…

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…
