Haribo is a brand of gummies that I’m always excited to try. What’s difficult is that since they’re a European company/brand/candy, we don’t get the full selection here in the US. I sometimes tease myself by looking at their German website and the vast selection of candies they offer. I want to try them all! But sadly, unless I take a trip to Germany, I will have to wait and just hope I will come across there domestically someday. I found these Haribo Tropifrutti in Cost Plus World Market, one of the few places I can find imported Haribo products. I was excited about this find since this is a variety I haven’t seen before, so something new finally! Hooray!
Texture is interesting. It’s kinda like a fruit pare inside a jelly bean, with a hard outside and a smooth jelly interior.
Red: Fruity and jammy. It reminds me of a raspberry Popsicle.
Dark Red: This one tastes more herbal and fruity, but not in any distinct way. Just “red”.
Green: Lightly watermelon flavored and that fake, juicy watermelon flavor.
White: Pineapple, bright, juicy and zesty. This flavor is spot on.
Yellow: Oddly enough, this is the most realistic banana flavor in a candy that I’ve ever tasted. It’s captured the starchy smooth feel of a banana perfectly. It’s sweet and have that sweet flavor we recognize as banana. Well done.
Orange: Yay, this one held no real surprise. It’s a mild, sweet, juicy orange flavor. Not too overdone, but not too mild.
Overall, I liked these flavors. They’re different from the typical tropical flavors you get here in the USA and I appreciate having something different. I was really impressed with the banana flavor, so that alone makes this package a winner for me. I also shared these with my boyfriend and friends, and they all liked them and were impressed with the texture. If you’re looking for something different, these are a great gummi treat to have if you’re trying to feel that thrill of flavor discovery.
Rating: Will Buy Again
