Proactively, I decided to find out what “Kaugis” means in English, but it doesn’t mean anything.
But wait…maybe it does. I finally found myself on Katjes’ web site, where they pronounced Kaugis to mean “one is happy while chewing”. Is it me, or are other countries, despite being far superior candy makers, seriously corny?
Susie bombed these over to us, and my first reaction wasn’t so excited. From the look of them, they were soft (warning! warning!) fruit flavored gummies:
We’ve seen these time and time again, right? So I thought. But the proof is in the perennial pudding on these. Yes, they’re soft-which…I really thought wasn’t my thing, but now I’m reconsidering that. According to Katjes, these are made with real fruit juice and fruit pulp. Pulp! When I say that you can taste it, I mean it – these are absolutely delicious.
Again, they’re not a tough chew, but that probably doesn’t disappoint most people. If you savor them, the flavor explodes after a few moments. There’s 6 flavors: lemon, strawberry, cherry, and I’m guessing blueberry, cranberry and orange. Every single one of these flavors is tart in real life, and the full flavor of these fruits-tarts, sweet, and complex layers-is all represented in the gummies. I can’t say enough about how the flavor develops while sucking on these.
Here’s the best part: there’s now a place for us to buy these, as well as several other varieties of Katjes, Haribo, and Trolli candy. Germanshop24.com not only has a nice variety and the most reasonable shipping rates I’ve found, but- get this- they’re trying to open a warehouse here in the US, which will lower shipping rates even more. I’ll expand more on this in the coming weeks, but for now, feel confident in clicking the link below to purchase some of these lovelies. I think these are something that everyone will enjoy.
