Haribo Citrus Fruitmania

These Haribo Citrus Fruitmania fol­low on from the berry ones from the same series.

There are five fla­vours in the bag: lem­on, blood orange, lime, orange and pink grapefruit. Again, they lack the bouncy tex­ture of Haribo’s ordin­ary gummy as these veget­ari­an gum­mies do not use gelat­in.

First up, is the lem­on. Shaped like a lem­on, it has a fresh lem­on fla­vour with its char­ac­ter­ist­ic sour­ness.

The blood orange has the aro­mat­ic fla­vours that you ordin­ar­ily get from blood orange and make it much more enjoy­able than an orange.

The lime is bright, with its char­ac­ter­ist­ic zesti­er and less sour notes that dis­tin­guish it from lem­on.

The orange tastes like orange, without the hint of bit­ter­ness that you usu­ally get from orange fla­voured gummy, but it does leave your tongue slightly numb like oth­er orange fla­voured gummy. What’s it with orange fla­voured gummy doing that?

And finally, the grapefruit has a very pleas­ant char­ac­ter­ist­ic sharp­ness or gentle bit­ter­ness that char­ac­ter­ises pink grapefruit. It’s sweet and zesty and packed with fla­vour — our favour­ite of the bunch.

The cit­rus fla­vours are true to their fresh fruit coun­ter­parts, but fans of the teeth-boun­cing tex­ture of Haribo’s gum­mies should avoid these.

This pack­age of Haribo Citrus Fruitmania con­tained 140 g. It was pro­duced in Germany and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
