Haribo Starmix Review

Haribo Starmix [Review]

Haribo is all over the U.K. in a big way. I brought back a couple of big bags of Haribo mini bags to give out to friends as little “I thought of you while abroad!” gifts. In addition to standard Haribo gummies (twin cherries, happy cola, etc.), Haribo also comes in a variety of mixes. I saw Tangfantastics, Spooky Mix, Football Mix, and Starmix, just to name a few. I’ve chosen to review Starmix mostly because it was the first bag I bought and the only bag I ate slowly enough to take tasting notes.

Haribo Starmix

Quite frankly, I have no idea why this is called Starmix. It contains foam and gummi hearts, foam and gummi fried eggs, gummi cola bottles, gummi bears, and gummi rings (the jewelry type, not the planetary type). Nothing in that bunch seems especially astral to me. Oh well. It’s still tasty.

Haribo Starmix Shapes and Flavors:

The hearts are a strawberry gummi with a white foam backing. The yolk of the fried eggs are a yellow gummi that tastes faintly of lemon, with the same white foam of the strawberry serving as the albumen. If you’ve never had gummi foam before, it’s a strange textural sensation. Really, the only way I can describe is by saying it’s foamy.

Haribo Starmix

The cola bottles are (duh) cola flavored, with a tinge of “brown” soda flavor accented with citrus. The gummi bears come in orange, yellow (lemon), and green (apple), and the ring colors include red (cherry), white (pineapple), orange (I swear, it’s tangier in ring form than in bear form), and lemon.

The conclusion:

In hindsight, maybe the star in Starmix refers to favorites/best-sellers rather than to astronomy. A solidly standard, if not especially exciting, mix of Haribo gummis that get an OM. I liked the Tangfantastics better, mostly because those are covered in sour sugar.
