Haribo's Sack of Cherries Review with images

AdvantagesGood Variety

DisadvantagesSmell of Chemicals!

"...saw a half-finished packet of Haribo looking at me, but this isn't just any old pack of Haribo. Oh no, this is Tangfastic Sour Mix. You're going to be eaten - and fast - I thought to myself… There's only one problem. The pack is half finished because my delightful wife has been munching on them, probably leaving all the nasty flavours! Well, I'll give it a try, anyway. FIRST GLANCE Unlike the normal Haribo packets that are red or blue, ..." Read review

Too Sour For Some? Review with images

AdvantagesGreat, sugarboost, delicious, low in fat and calories.

DisadvantagesHigh in sugar, keep you awake, price

"...loyal purchaser of their brother- haribo kiddies supermix and occasionaly the starmix, but the Tangfastics were a type I hadnt had in a long while- perhaps even a year. I decided i'd start off with a couple of these, as I couldnt really remember what they were like all those months ago. I grabbed the bag before little cousins could get there paws on them. It was fairly attractive and I was surprised the young 'uns hadnt spotted it by now. ..." Read review

Haribo Tangfastics - dental mayhem in a packet. Review with images

AdvantagesStrong, tasty, chewy decadence.

DisadvantagesThey make you feel sick and your teeth fall out.

"...sweet taste or bland texture. Haribo is the sweetie equivalent of whisky. The taste isn't polite but it wakes you up and makes you perky. And like whisky, Haribo Tangfastics aren't something you can really ignore. You might hate them or you might be crazy-nuts for them, but indifference isn't going to be an option. Pop one in - you'll react all right. They're clearly of no significant use in providing the body with vital goodness. A look at ..." Read review

Fan-tang-tastic!

Advantageschewy and tasty, not a duff sweet in the bag

Disadvantageswill be too sweet for some

"...I were first introduced to Haribo Tangfastics. I will admit that I preferred the Starmix because they had fried eggs and those yummy hearts but I wouldn’t turn down a bag of Tangfastics. Well anyway the other afternoon I got bored and I wandered off to the supermarket to kill some time. I felt duty bound to buy something and so picked up a bag of Haribo Tangfastics. They come in a 225gram bag which costs around £1. They also come in little 10p ..." Read review

Tange's Tangy Tangfastics!

AdvantagesTasty, tangy, fizzy, fruity...need I go on? Oh, and the name looks a bit like Tange!

DisadvantagesProbably not good for me in the quantities that I would like to consume them in!

"...are the second most popular Haribo sweet, according to the Haribo Web-site top 20 (www.haribo.com). They come in the number 2 spot, before the Kids Super Mix. Tangfastics are a jelly sweets covered in a fine coating of sugar ~ despite this they have a sour taste. You will find them in a typical bright "Haribo" packet ~ orange with white, yellow and green lettering, along with the little dark haired Haribo Boy grinning at you. The packet has a ..." Read review

What's this sticky stuff on my tongue?

AdvantagesThey're sweets - need I say more?!

DisadvantagesThe bags aren't big enough!

"...met anyone who doesn’t like Haribo sweets. The advert is completely true: ‘Kids and grown-ups love them so’! My personal favourite from the Haribo range is the Tangfastics sweets. Although saying that, if the shop has sold out of Tangfastics, the Super Mix, Fizzy Dinosaurs or Maoam Mix will do as substitutes, I guess. The Tangfastics are thankfully widely available in most supermarkets and larger convenience stores, along with your One-Stops and ..." Read review

How to suck a cherry, Chicken stylee

AdvantagesDifferent taste to normal 'sweet' sweets

Disadvantagescalories, sore mouth, sugar content.

"...am in fact taking about Haribo Tangfastic Sour mix. Now for some people the idea of a sweet tasting sour is a bit offputting, but they aren't really sour like a bottle of old milk but in a lip smacking kind of way, very yummy! Packet first, colourful plastic jobby, in an orangy sort of colour with the little Haribo Kiddie (Hari Boy) on the front. The middle section is see through showing you exactly what you get for your money. This comes in handy ..." Read review

Sugar Rush

AdvantagesHigh quality, distinct flavour

DisadvantagesNot suitable for vegitarians

"When I was a student Haribo were on 2for1 special offer in the union shop for most of the four years that I was there. As a consequence I consider myself to be quite an expert on Haribo having sampled many different varieties of Haribo jelly sweeties over the years. Haribo come in whole range of flavours from Star mix to Goldenbears to buildaburger. If you want to know more their top twenty flavours are on their website www.haribo.com. There is ..." Read review

Not just for kids (Haribo Tangfastics Sour Mix)

AdvantagesNice sour flavor

DisadvantagesLoads of sugar

"...good look a bag of Haribo Tangfastics caught my eye and as they where on offer (only £1 for a 175g bag) I decided to give them a go. After I got home and packed the shopping away I opened the bag and dove in. The bag has various jelly shaped sweets inside (Crocodiles, cherries, coke bottles and a dummy) the sweets are soft jellies with a sugary type coating which gives them a sour flavor. These are not the sourest sweets I have had (I tend to find ..." Read review

Haribo at its best

AdvantagesA different, tasty snack available in a variety of sizes

DisadvantagesUnsurprisingly unhealthly, especially for your teeth

"...are many plain gummy sweets, Haribo themselves are responsible for a lot of them, but when you're not in the mood for such a snack, they can lack a certain, oomph, shall we say, making them somewhat similar to eating packing peanuts. And there are also fizzy sweets around. Usually, they fall into one of two categories: Utterly unfizzy: the sweets have a coating that has a very slight fizz or, worst still, no fizz whatsoever, merely what seems ..." Read review

Tangy? Yes. Sour? Not so much.

AdvantagesTasty, lots in a bag, satisfying

DisadvantagesNot sour enough for me, sugar and calories

"...of Haribo". Here in the UK, Haribo are manufactured in Pontefract by Dunhills. I used to work in Ponte (sadly not at the factory, my Willy Wonka dreams are still unfulfilled) and the air actually does smell like sweets on some days! Tangfastics are currently Haribo's second-bestseller in the UK, after Starmix. I used to like them once in a while but always had more of a taste for chocolate. However since I've been dieting I've ditched the chocolate ..." Read review

I hope my dentist can't see me eating these!

AdvantagesFizzy and very chewy; addictive

DisadvantagesBad for teeth

"...I bought a packet of Haribo Tangfastics! I don't know what made me succumb to this most childish of snacks but I just couldn't resist them. How sad is that?! Anyway, they were calling out to be eaten, so it would have been rude for me to ignore them, wouldn't it? The packet in question was purchased from my local Morrisons store for 97p. It has lots of mad-looking cartoon creatures on the front and is bustling with activity and full of colour. ..." Read review

A bit of sourness, like me

AdvantagesThe Cherry's are brilliant, the sweets on the whole are great

DisadvantagesNot many cherry's, too many keys

"...life more fun have been Haribo who have been releasing jelly based sweets almost none stop for the last few years. The clever marketing of Haribo has been aimed not just at the kids who you'd expect a sweet campaign to be aimed at, but also trying to extend the market to the rest of us with an advert aimed as much as adults as at kids. “Kids and Grown ups love it so, the happy world of Haribo”appealing to the kids inside everyone of us and breaking ..."

Sour mix! They're tangfastic.

AdvantagesLots of sugar, chewy sweets, very tangy.

DisadvantagesWill rot your teeth eventually :(

"Haribo Tangfastics are one of my favourite Haribo products. They are lots of jelly sweets in various shapes as well as foam sweets which are covered in sugar and pretty tangy (some more than others!) The packet is just a plastic bag with a clear strip to allow you to see the sweets within and therefore be tempted by the product glistening to you from the shelves and hopefully lure you in to picking some up! The bag is a bright orange colour also ..." Read review

Fizzy fantastic fun

AdvantagesThe best sweets ever

DisadvantagesI suppose there is a chance they may be a little bit unhealthy...

"=== A sweet tooth === Although I do have a bit of a sweet tooth, I am more of a savoury fan and I am not a big sweet eater overall. However, when it comes to these fizzy wonders I am a total pushover! If I could live on just these, and crisps and sips, I would be a very happy girl. These sweets come in a big 160g bag and are widely available. They cost about £1.30-£1.50, but I only ever buy them when they are on offer. And recently my evil local ..." Read review
