Today's Review: Haribo Frosty Twists

Christmas is coming. People may still not want to admit it, but in just over a week all the other festivities will be out of the way (apart from you Americans with your Thanksgiving). I've been picking at festive bits and bobs over the last month or so, and I'm continuing on that theme with these Frosty Twists from Haribo. They look pretty much the same as the Rainbow Twists that have been out for a while now, but apparently I haven't reviewed them, so this can account for both varieties.

These Frosty Twists are two toned, woven chewy, sour sweets. They're pretty much like green and red fizzy laces wound together and chopped into bitesize pieces. The packaging states that these are apple and cherry twists, but I didn't exactly get those distinct flavours. These are fruity, yes, and tasty too, but more generic chewy sweet fruity than anything else. I guess it's because the sour coating detracts from the overall taste. Not too much though, it certainly leaves a tingle on the tongue, but the fruitiness does shine through. This is a nice variety of Haribo, sour, fruity treats that aren't quite as strong as Tangfastics. They're definitely nowhere near the best Haribo varieties, but they're a nice festive entry into the usual bland offering of differently shaped gummies. So pick some up before Christmas is done.

My rating: 4/5

  1. these are way better than the Rainbow twists! Rainbow twists have a plasticy taste and rubbery, waxy feel and no fizz.
