Haribo’s Jogi Bussi
There are a lot of similarities here at Candygurus.
We are all brilliant – we’re GURUS dammit – watcha expect?
We know our candy like no others – at least none of the peeps in our immediate friend and family base.
We are swell lookers
And none of us are Chinese
Need I go on?
But we also have some differences. Jonny works in the sound industry, Matty in tech and I am the Master of Pain Delivery (sports massage therapist). Actually we are much more alike than different and while our tastes in candy usually click, sometimes they vary greatly. And we are not shy about opining those tastes – we’re not going to ram it down your throats but we’re also not going to hold them in. So this is why I am dedicating this post to my lovely wife.
Didn’t think so.
I’ll explain it again for the first time.
My family was visiting at Jonny Guru’s house. Very nice house by the way. And Jonny has a bit of a candy collection – plenty good, plenty bad. So he breaks out a couple of bags of treats and one is Haribo’s Jogi Bussi. Then goes on to eat one and rip it. I don’t remember exactly what he said – its not like I was toasted or something or maybe I was but it went something like “these suck….. yogurty crap squirting out…. blech…. don’t forget to take these home with you…. PLEASE” Jonny is very polite. I tried one or two before dinner and thought they were ok but not very impressive.
Anyway, an hour later my wife starts plowing through the bag – commenting – I actually like these… these are pretty good… etc… So I did take them home. And noted that I would give these another try. How bad can her taste be – she chose me, right. That was probably not the best argument in favor of her good taste but I trust her.
So last night, after the misses and Guru-ette Jr. are out for the night, I find myself searching through the pantry for a snack. Rock Gods need snacks and on Guitar Hero, I am a Rock God. Which is pretty funny because I can play the guitar – yet I suck. And I’m not even really all that good at Guitar Hero. But my daughter just loves it when I raise my guitar, thanking all my fans, savoring the applause from the Nintendo Wii system. Seriously – the crowd goes wild and to me and her – I am a Rock God. And Rock Gods need snacks. So I’m searching and then it hits me – take another look-see at the Haribo’s Jogi Bussi.
I do and “the crowd goes wild”. They are pretty darn good. Thick gummy texture. Haribo’s signiture fruity flavors and a twist – these are actually filled with liquid yogurt. They also have that layer of foam on the bottom that seems perfect as an addition to Haribo’s gummy’s but too much when its the main course. This all worked perfectly. After a couple of sets – I really Rocked out in Miami – I realized that I had eaten about three quarters of the bag. Either one of my groupies snuck in and helped her cute little self to some of these or I really like them.
I think the yogurt really messed up Jonny but they were just right for my tastes and gummy-candy-eating-habits. I could pop one in and let it sit while the foam melted away and then bite through gently and suck out the fruity-yogurty-cream, then I was left with Haribo’s high quality gummy. The flavors seem to be Strawberry, Peach, Apple, Pear and maybe Banana by looks of the bag – I didn’t really taste banana but the others all seemed distinctly different although a bit difficult to tell what they actually were with all the different layers of texture and flavor.
Regardless, I really liked these. I found them tasty and interesting and would definitely buy them again.
I might buy a bunch of bags of these to toss out to my adoring fans next time I rock out. I hope the bags don’t damage my TV.
