“ Brand: Haribo / Type: Gum „
I got a pack of these when Asda had a buy one get one free of the haribo range a few months ago. I had never seen these, so weather they had appeared just because of the offer and Asda was bringing in different stock, which I know can often happen. We got a pack of the usual jelly sweets we have and then just decided to try these because they were on offer.
So it cost us £1.10 for the 2 bags of 200g sweets. This bag looked ok. There was a see through part on the front and you could see all the colourful sweets through the bag. The bag is a yellow colour and just like the picture on dooyoo. The haribo branding is clear to see as well.
This was just the usual kind of sweet mixture that you get in bags like this, but the sweets seemed small compared to other bags, I suppose that's where they got the micro name. They are a good mixture of Jelly babies, jelly Hearts, little allsorts, frogs, cars and other jelly shapes. A good mixture of colours in here as well, and they all taste nice and fruity.
I liked these and would get them again. I know they are just like other jelly sweets but are sort of good because they are tiny. Looks like you get loads in the bag, therefore think you are getting loads for your money.
I will look out for these in the shops and get them again if I ever find them again.
Haribo Micro Mix:
I invested in a packet of these tonight and I am quite glad I did. They were ever so tasty and super delicious. I am not really a massive fan of Haribo as they tend to make my teeth really sting, they are sensitive but they hurt when I eat packs like strawbs and starmix. With this pack though, they don't hurt one bit which meant I really enjoyed them.
This is basically a small version of lots of different sweets. They have the jelly bears, liquorice sweets, hearts, dummies and many more in little versions! These come in a 200g plastic bag which has changed since the above image. It is now in an orange coloured bag which has the same layout but there is different font and the little boy which is seen in a plane above is with a bunny on the new packet. All of the nutritional information is located on the back of the packet.
The reason why I like these sweets is because they are small, they are suitable for children, they have no really sugary sweets, they are cheap £1.00 from the Co-Op, kids and grown ups love them and they smell and taste great!
Half of the pack provides:
These are actually quite unhealthy, even though they do not have much fat in them, I have heard that carbohydrates turn to fat if you do not burn them off. Me and my boyfriend bought these today and they were on offer for £1.00 which was good but I regret it now that I know they have so much carbohydrates in them.
I came across these little things not long ago while I was searching for something different as a reat for my son. He's 5, and while we tend to not give him too many sweets, these are a great little idea, as they feature some recognisable sweets, in a mini format, making it easier to give your kid some sweets but restrict the amount they get.
Haribo has a wide range, and they all pretty much follow suit in price. This will set you back around £1 for a 200g, and you get quite a few sweets in it. There are a number of different types, such as liquorice allsorts and other jellied sweets, and the appeal of this bag is that they are tiny! The allsorts are the most surprising, as I've never seen mini ones before, whereas tiny jellied sweets are easy to find.
There is a good mix of shapes and colours amongst the jellied sweets, including hearts and what I guess are dummies. The jelly is quite strong, and the sweets don't instantly fall apart when they go into your mouth like some jellied sweets do. These need a bit of chomping first!
Overall, these are a good addition to the Haribo range, however, like all sweets, really, there are nutritional pitfalls. To a certain extent, you expect the flavourigns and colours, and a couple of the ingredients are scientifically described enough to forget instantly how they're spelt, let alone what they mean! There's a lot of sugar in these, with almost two thirds of the weight being sugar, and calories are also rather high, around 700 cals for the 200g bag. Don't be alarmed, though. This is to be expected of sweets. The main pull of this product is the appeal of the smaller sweets, and the good variety they offer. I was happy to have bought them, and would happily get them again if they were part of the choice.
