Gummi Clown Fish

Name: Gummi Clown Fish
Brand: Haribo
Place Purchased: (sample)
Price: $19.50 ($3.90 per pound)
Size: 5 lbs!
Calories per ounce: 100 calories (based on Gummi Bear package)
Type: Gummi

This was my biggest score from the recent trip to the CandyWarehouse. It’s a five pound box of gummis. Whew!

These little cuties are shaped like clown fish (yes, like Nemo from the movie). Each little fish is about two inches long and an inch wide. They’re big gummis. Luckily Haribo gummis are not sticky, so they’re easy to hold while you take a bite or pull it until it snaps (you can get it to about four inches before it gives way).

While real clown fish come in one color - orange, these come in three. Yellow (lemon), Green (sour apple?) and Red (berry?). I had a lot more trouble telling the flavors apart on these. I’m positive yellow is lemon, but that’s as much as I can commit to.

Soft, tart and sweet, these are excellent gummis. The large size makes them kind of fun to chew on, you get to decide how much you want by the size of your bite - but it’s harder to mix flavors. The size of the package is a bit daunting. I opened the bag the afternoon I got them and plowed through maybe a dozen fish and then separated them into little baggies of about a half a pound each. All my friends will be getting a fun hostess gift whenever they invite me over.

If I had my druthers, I’d do different colors and flavors than they chose. I’d like a pink grapefruit, an orange orange and keep the yellow lemon. Yes, they’d all be citrus. I’d call them Citrus Clown Fish.

Rating - 8 out of 10

  4.’s take on the flavors- “The red/white fish are flavored orange and lemon; the orange/white fish have an pineapple and lemon flavor; while the green/white fish taste like pear and lemon.”

    I’d have to agree- especially on the pineapple.

  5. The yellow fish is pineapple.  These are the best Gummi’s.  I am addicted.  World Market used to have them in tubs, but my local store has been out for sometime.  Must order on the internet.
