Dark day for Haribo


Hans Riegel, along with his brother Paul Riegel took over their father’s company. This company was Haribo, which is now a worldwide known gummy candy company and conquered the markets. But today we have come to the terms that Hans Riegel passed away after having brain surgery due to a tumor. It wasn’t the operation, he passed on due to a heart attack during re-validation on the age of 90. From the fight for the freedom of Germany in WWII all the way to getting his doctorate degree in 1951 and leading this great company, we say goodnight mister Riegel. You shall be missed and always will be remembered with this great legacy you left us.

Have a break! Have a…


We all heard the catchphrase… if not you’ve been living under a cardboard box, or you just don’t watch TV…
The famous catchphrase we all love and know is “Have a break, have a KitKat,”

It’s a good excuse to stop doing whatever you’re doing. Stretch back from the job at hand and eat some tasty chocolate. Produced by Nestle.. who has some good quality milk chocolate right there. With the crunchy wafer in each semi-separated bar you are guaranteed for a perfect balance of crunch and chocolate. Read the rest of this entry

Chewy Cherry Goodness


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!
