Coming Soon!

Yes, on Monday I’ll launch my first head-to-head review. I’ll take on the original gummi bears, Trolli and Haribo. I’ll tell you what flavor each color actually is and give you my assessment of which bear is best.

  1. I totally bet Haribo is going to win.  I love those little guys. (Although in your battle image, the Trolli bear is noticeably cuter.)

  2. Haribo is totally the winner. Especially when you take into account their other fine products like Sour Spaghetti, peaches, Tangfastics, Cola bottles… on and on.

    You’re right Lisa, I had a hard time photographing the Haribo bears so that they didn’t look evil.

    Haribo was definitely my favorite going in.

  4. I prefer Haribo myself. Trolli always felt a little too artificial… not that any kind of gummi animal is NOT artificial. But I digress…

    In an unrelated note - do you know anything about Luden’s cough drops? I am trying to figure out specifically what happened to the CHEWY version of their cough drops that used to exist but dissapeared long ago.

    Any info?

    Thanks! (Great blog btw)

  5. Totally Haribo. Much better flavor. Trolli seems waxy to me. And Haribo Twin Cherries are addictive.
