Haribo Fried Eggs
Advantages: Nice texture; Popular with little kids
Disadvantages: Not much flavour; Loads of sugar
My sister came in from playing today with a bag of Haribo fried egg sweets, I just fancied something sweet so nicked a couple out of the bag to munch on while I watched Gavin & Stacey. I've had fried egg sweets before so knew what to expect, and that is not much apart from the taste of sugar! lol
The sweets are mostly made up of white foam and that makes up the white of the egg, the yolk is a little dot of yellow jelly. They do look amazingly like fried eggs and I always worry before I eat these that they're going to taste of egg too! Irrational I know but they're sooooooo lifelike!
They haven't got much taste and I think the main thing about these sweets is the texture of them. Kids deffo enjoy the foam and jelly combination because it makes them nice and chewy but not too awkward to eat like some sweets that are pure jelly. The foam is proper soft but it's still chewy and even though there's only a bit of jelly on each sweet it gives it a mega chewy texture.
It's a shame they couldn't put some sort of flavouring into these sweets because the texture is really nice once you get used to it. Haribo could at least make the yellow jelly lemon flavoured or something just to give some interest to the sweets. As it is they just taste of pure sugar and after 4 they got too sweet for me to enjoy and I ended up giving them back. I love sweet things too it's just that with no other flavours to take away from the sugar it made them boringly sweet so much that I didn't want to eat any more.
This bag was 99p from the corner shop by me and the bag is quite big, being Haribo I'd have thought they'd cost more but maybe that represents what a boring bag of sweets they are. I know I wouldn't pay more for them however big the bag!
Recommended..... to 10 year olds! lol
Summary: Looks Like A Fried Egg, Tastes Like Sugar!
