Haribo Dragibus



To defend my title as an absolute sugar lover, I want to present another goodie to you, today.
Most of you probably know the brand Haribo which are quite famous for their gummy candy all over the world. Although it is actually a German confectionery company, that doesn’t mean that we can also get hold of all the different products that are out there.

One of these seemingly exclusive varieties are the Haribo Dragibus. They are supposed to be quite popular in France and also pretty much only available in this country, as far as I know.

There are three different Dragibus varieties: Dragibus Bi Cool, Dragibus Soft and the original Dragibus. I got a 120g pack of the original ones in one of my latest (rather extensive) online orders of foreign sweets.



A bag contains lots of little, colourful pearls with a chewy and fruity centre that is surrounded by a layer of sugar coating.
You might already know from *this* or  *this* post, that I’m a great lover of Jelly Belly. You could say that the Haribo Dragibus are kind of similar to them, only that the shell is quite a bit harder in comparison. Although I haven’t tried the soft version, I imagine them to be even more similar to an actual Jelly Bean.

Normally, there are six different flavours of Dragibus which could be strawberry, blackberry, raspberry, lemon, apple and blueberry. However, these are only the flavours that I associate with their colours as none of them really taste like a certain fruit in particular.

The ‘limited edition’ bag that I got also included white Dragibus which apparently was the outcome of peoples’ votes . Following Haribo’s typical link between their colours and flavours, these could possibly be pineapple flavoured (again, this is only a guess).

I think these might be a ‘love it or hate it’ candy as the taste is admittedly rather artificial in the beginning. However, for some reason I quite liked the strangely artificial and slightly sour initial taste of the shell which is followed by a fairly fruity taste once you start chewing it.
Although I have to warn you – these little pearls will stick to your teeth SO badly! ^_^'


Overall, I’ve been loving my gummy candy lately, so be prepared for more upcoming posts!
Also, I’d appreciate it so much if you participated in this very quick survey down below!

  2. Liebe Lena, da bin ich jetzt gar nicht gut, denn ich esse kaum jemals etwas von Haribo. Ehrlich gesagt, kenne ich die meisten Produkte von Haribo, die Du hier nennst gar nicht, die Goldbären aber natürlich und die habe ich jetzt auch angegeben :) Dir noch ein wunderbares Wochenende!
