Haribo! We all know the brand and I’m pretty sure we all love it. From their sour sweets all the way to the sweet and even the plain liquorice textures are a fit for any kind of candy nibbler.
As they themselves say it “Kids and grown-ups love it so” and that is not much far from being a fact.
Today we open up a tub (also available in small bags) of these, the “Happy Cherries”. To be frank, there isn’t much to say about these apart from the usual I-ate-a-whole-bag-before-realizing-syndrome. An appealing color scheme. Smooth, chewy yet juicy texture in the mouth and the childish fun of eating the cherries and leaving the green bits makes you feel like a big shot…who end up eating everything which is not advisable with real cherries… Oh 8-year old me.
The cherry flavour is there and yet doesn’t overpower your taste buds. It’s a subtle flavouring. I like shoving 2-3 in my mouth at a time as one is just not enough.The coloring weirdly enough tricks the brain into thinking there is more then one flavour. Even if there isn’t they’re still a pleasant experience. Once more the Germans know how to get people nomming on gummy sweets.
It’s generic but in a good way…it’s so good everyone can enjoy them, even if you don’t like real cherries I suggest to give these a nibble!
