Haribo Kiddies Super Mix
Advantages: Tasty, good variety, fun
Disadvantages: Not suitable for vegetarians, bags a bit big
Haribo's Kiddies Super Mix is a great, fun mixture of haribo sweets with more variety in flavour than the ever popular Starmix
Kiddies mix comes in 300g red bags, with a large window for viewing the colourful bundle of yellow, red, green, purple and white sweets inside. The usual friendly Haribo boy is on the front, but sticking with the childish theme, he is on a space hopper. It is a nice colourful bag, though a little large for only a couple of people to eat in one go.
There are 3 textures of sweets contained in the bag (unlike Starmix which only has 2, the gummy and foam gummy)
GUMMIES: 75% of the bag
These are 50/50 foam and haribo fruity jelly and come in a jumble of shapes including shoes, instruments, animals and sports equipment. The jelly tastes sweet and slightly of the flavour suggested by their colours (lemony for yellow, limey for green etc.) the foam is a little chewy, but the jelly is a nice texture to bite into. The colours are lurid, as they should be.
JELLY BABIES: 10% of the bag
These are long, thin looking people-shaped sweets, made of a sort of jelly which is more dense and less chewy than the other haribo sweets, and is slightly crusted on the outside to create a nice texture. It isnt dusty and oversweet like normal jelly babies, and the flavours are more distinct. They come in nice, slightly pearlescent colours, notably purple and white. The flavour of the purple one is deep, like grapes, a brilliant flavour, and the white one is slightly coconutty.
MILK BOTTLES: 15% of the bag
These are opaque cream-coloured sweets in the shape of bottles which are chewy and taste subtely of vanilla and creamy. They are an acquired taste and my least favourite.
Per 100g (a third of the bag):
For a more reasonable serving of 50g, 172 calories isn't too bad for a snack. Unfortunately these sweets are not suitable for vegetarians which is something which I think should be developed.
These are sold at Tesco for £1.32 but are often on offer.
The most varied and enjoyable bag in the Haribo range, and more aggreable than some (such as the sour Tangfastics). I am not sure how tight the "Kiddies" concept is - it seems to relate to the milk bottles/babies/ funny shaped gummies - but it doesn't really matter.
Summary: Sweet, flavoursome and always moreish
