Haribo Happy Cola

As I’m sure you’re well aware, kids and grown-ups love it so, the happy world of Haribo. But just how happy will Haribo’s Happy Cola make you?

Those who are in the know are more likely to be aware of Haribo due to their gummy bears. They also have what seems to be around a few hundred different types of gummy candy variations. The one most appropriate to this site is, of course, Happy Cola.

The gummies are appropriately shaped like bottles, half filled with soda. This ratio of half gummy, half cola is pretty accurate. The candy tastes like the “clear” flavored gummy bears (my personal favorite) with enough of a cola flavor that you’ll recognize it as something unique.

The cola flavor is a bit sweet, which is a rare comment coming from me, but because it only takes up about half the flavor, again, sharing the other half with the “clear” flavor, it works out perfectly.

Without knowing that these were supposed to be cola flavored, I may not have guessed that properly, but that doesn’t mean they’re not good. Just don’t expect to be overwhelmed by a cola taste. If I have any other negative, is that after eating a bunch of these, your hands will smell terrible. So...maybe consider a fork?
