We may be sour, but we know our sweets.

Haribo DJ Brause

Sour DJ’s-isn’t that appropriate?  Aren’t they all sour?  Pissy if you ask them to play a track, pissy if you ask what track they’re playing, just generally pissy.  And I should know, as I used to be one in a former life.

Seriously, I did.  You can check my stuff out on Mixcloud if you want proof.  Oh, I never said I was good, I just said that I did it.  Imagine my glee when I saw these in one of my many care packages from Germany:

Now HE looks happy.  God bless him, the little purple bastard.  What we have here are sour coated semi stiff marshmallow type things.  They’re not all the way marshmallow though, so they’re a little hard to classify.

They’re shaped like the buttons on a modern DJ deck: play, pause, etc.  Check ’em out:

Oh, not clear enough?  Let’s go closer in:

Yeah.  So much for the “shape”.  They look like slightly odd nipples to me.  And I have to be honest, I wasn’t super blown away by the taste either.  The flavors are fine, but it’s a bit more marshmallowy than I like, so they didn’t really leave a significant impression.

Overall, in the Haribo world, these don’t stack up. Also, if you wanna be cool like the dj kids, these…don’t stack up. Overall, they’re not a trainwreck (see???!!! I really DO know my dj lingo, mostly because I had a knack for trainwrecking) but they’re nothing to write home about.

  1. This is funny. Also, wrong. Or rather, it should change because these aged great. Once they got a little harder and chewier, I wanted another bag.
