Haribo Raspberries - Five Below in The Gallery, PA
Gummy candies are my favorite. I went a bit overboard and bought a ton of Haribo sweets that were on sale. I never had these raspberries before, so this was the perfect chance to try them out.
The bag is a classic black and red design with a berry print. The print is beautiful! It reminds me of EGL (Elegant Gothic Lolita) dress patterns.
The candies smell like a mixture of blackberry and raspberry, so there is no chance mistaking these for their licorice counterparts.
Visually, these are adorable! They look like pretty little berries! These would be beautiful decorations for cupcakes or cakes, but the colors would bleed a bit into icings or frostings. These would also look precious in a china bowl for a lolita picnic or event!
Outside, the candy is covered by lightly raspberry flavored confectionery pearls. They are softer than nonpareils and crumble as you chew the candy. These little beads add a nice texture and mouth-feel, I’d eat a bag of just these!
The center isn’t a real gummy, it’s more like a Turkish delight. The inside has a bright raspberry flavor that pairs well with the candy coating.
I think these Haribo Raspberries are visually appealing AND tasty! A great sweet for any tea party, or Lolita gathering. If you like raspberries and chewy treats you MUST try these.
