Kinda feels like a miss to have a candy called “Donuts” and not have flavors like glazed, powdered, apple fritter, old fashioned or chocolate kruller.
Still, it’s Haribo. They make damned good gummies. And this specific variety is from Germany, the original home of Haribo, so you know they’re going to be highly eatable.
Maybe it was the fact these were sent to us months back from super fan Suzi, or maybe it’s because they were on my shelf ever since — either way, time really adds to the texture of Haribo Donuts gummies. These babies were significantly bigger than your average gummy bear, maybe twice as much, and they were super chewy, even with the marshmallow softer side. Not chewy like gum, but hard gummy where you have to work it awhile before it breaks down.
Flavors are what you expect from Haribo gummies: lemon, apple, blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, and peach. Ok yes I guess these could also be jelly donuts? But let’s just all agree these get their name from the shape, not the recipes.
The best thing about Haribo Donuts is the sheer amount you get in the package. I’ve noticed this too from other German version of candy we get: there is more in the package than what we get in America. This package was teeming with candy. Our U.S. Haribo packages are like 12-15 pieces and done.
But the biggest drawback of thee Haribo Donuts? I cannot find them anywhere!
So what’s the point of this review if you quite literally can’t get these?
There’s none point.
