Haribo Super Sour Monsters

This is a British version of Haribo jellies. Again, they are sugarcoated and again, there is way too much sugar on them. The jellies should be monster-shaped, but all you can see is a piece of gummy covered with sugar. The faces underneath it are totally unrecognizable. Anyway, they look better than the tangfastics mix I tried some time ago, even though all I see is some missproduced jelly. Though the smell is artificial, it is better as the last British jelly I tried as well. Good start.

The jellies come in three different colors and flavors: a yellow lemon one, apple green and cherry red. There is an additional warning on the back saying that “nasty” Haribo had put extra sour into the mix. Well, they use a double positive here, does that mean anything?

I start with the yellow one. It has the lightest and weakest color. The coating is pretty sour, but not too sour that it makes you shiver. The inner life taste slightly like lemon, but the dominant taste is just sourness.

The green one isn’t as sour as the yellow one in the beginning, but the sourness develops while chewing it. Its apple flavor is most intensive during the first bites, but wears off soon. Nice.

Finally cherry. This is the least sour jelly and the sour taste beats the cherry aroma which you can only get a glimpse of. I don’t know if that’s good or bad, but the tiny glimpse of cherry I get is too artificial, just like the water ice flavorings. Nah, even though I usually like berry flavored jellies, this one doesn’t get to me at all!

The texture of them is really chewy. They don’t stick to your tooth too easily, better than several other Haribo jellies.

All in all those jelly is alright, but not outstanding.

    Have you tried sour patch kids? These look like a comparable candy.
