Haribo Star Mix
Advantages: good value for money, great for kids.
Disadvantages: can get addicted!
We've all seen the adverts and heard the slogan, but do Haribo's really live up to everyone's expectations?
Yes, yes they do!
Haribo was founded in 1920 by Hans Riegel Sr in Germany. The headquarters for the company is in Bonn, and the name HARIBO is an acronym for Hans Riegel, Bonn. Which is actually an incredibly smart idea!
Today, Haribo is the biggest manufacturer of gummy and jelly sweets in the world, with its products mainly consisting of Gummi Bears, other jelly sweets and liquorice. There are five factories in Germany and 13 throughout the rest of Europe, and HAIRBO have sales offices in almost every country in Europe, as well as in the U.S. and Australia.
The price can vary. It's around 9p for a mini-bag of stamix, £1.40 for a 200g bag of starmix, £2.63 for a the mini-packs and £2.49 for a tub of Starmix. These can be bought at more supermarkets such as Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury's.
The packaging is overall very bright and colourful. Haribo starmix comes in a plastic blue packaging. It has HARIBO in red across the top, starmix underneath, and a rocket blasting off into space on the right. It has a clear plastic window where you can see the product and lot's of useful information on the back. Hairbos come in large packets of 200g and also smaller packets, perfect for lunchboxes.
Sweets yum! It's Haribo Starmixs' 15th birthday, so limited edition very cherry alien sweets have been added to the pack, and i can vouch for them being really yummy! It also contains gummy bears- which come in a lot of different colours and are very fruity and chewey, rings-which are really gummy and similar to the gummy bear taste, cola bottles- which are brown/black and white, and taste like coke, they are lovely, fried eggs- which have a yellow centre then a white surrounding, the white is fluffy and yummy, and the hearts- which are similar to the eggs as they have a white backing, and a red gummy front! Haribo's contain no artifical colours, however the sweets do contain gelatine, which makes them non-suitable for vegetarians.
Although the target market for Haribo Starmix is children, they are perfect for any age group! Even my gran loves them! They are great to keep kids occupied though, my sister enjoys putting on ther ing and pretending she is super famous and is handy for when i'm babysitting. They're also perfect for lunchboxes, parties, cinema trips or even just for overall munching. Haribo have also released various other ranges such as Maoam, Goldbears, Tang-fastic, Sour Cherries just to name a few. They are greatvalue for money, and i would definetely recommend this product! I love them!
Summary: yummy! worth purchasing!
