Haribo Bärchen-Pärchen

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. Google translate tells me that Bärchen-Pärchen means Bear Couple. Doesn’t have quite…

Haribo Orangina P!k

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). At any rate, it’s pretty clear that these are supposed to be…

Guest Post: Haribo Turtles

Hey readers! I’m on my last day of pseudo-vacation up in New Hampshire, so check out this post from ex-pat Neil in the meantime. ~Rosa I had time to kill in a German train station, and I needed some spare change to use the bathroom, so I bought these Haribo Turtles. They set me back…

Haribo Nappar Fruit

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 Fruity-Bussi

Haribo Fruity-Bussi are the fruity corollary to the Jogi-Bussi that I reviewed on Monday. They were the same mix of gummi, foam, and goo as the Jogi-Bussi, but not yogurt-based. I far preferred these. The three fruits on this wrapper were orange, raspberry, and pear, though all the gummies were shaped like little round, knobby…

Haribo Jogi-Bussi

I found these Haribo Jogi-Bussi in Europe. There’s also a Fruity-Bussi version that I’ll review on Wednesday. They’re yogurt gummies with a foam bottom and some sort of goo in the center. There were four fruits pictured on the wrapper – strawberry, apple, peach, and pear – but I only had two colors of gummi…

Haribo Brixx

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…

Haribo Sour S’ghetti

I’ve often seen bags of Haribo Sour S’ghetti in stores but usually opted for more familiar gummis. I finally took the Sour S’ghetti plunge when they showed up at Aldi for around $1 a bag, a deal that was too good to pass up. The s’ghetti are ~2 inch gummi noodles covered in granulated sugar….

Haribo TropiFrutti

I bought these Haribo TropiFrutti somewhere in Spain. I saw them in lots of shops in Europe, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen them in the U.S. The texture of these really sets them apart. They have this weird shell that’s hard to the touch and sort of tough to chew. It reminds me…
