Haribo ginger-lemon!

A package of Haribo ginger-lemon gummies caught my eye at Walgreens this morning. Since there's no way I would have overlooked them for long, I concluded they must be new, and an article confirmed they were just introduced in the US in September. Package says "Manufactured for Haribo of America/Made in Austria by Haribo Austria."

Anyway, if you like ginger, and you like lemon gummies, you will like these. I think the flavor is really well-balanced between the ginger and the lemon.

Anyone else tried these?

  1. Those sound amazing! I'm going to stop at Walgreens on my way home from work!

    1. That sounds yummy! Have never seen it; will check my Walgreens.

      1. Ruth, try melting a few in a cup of hot lemon or ginger tea-nice kick.

        1. We got some of these yesterday (thanks to this post) and they are awesome. Unfortunately the bag lasted about 10 minutes ... nice gingery tasted with a lemon aftertaste. I assume the coating is crystalized ginger or is it just sugar?

            I think it's just sugar. I had the exact same experience with the ginger upfront and the nice clean lemon aftertaste. And yeah, my bag didn't last long, either.

          2. I was pleasantly surprised by the strength of the ginger flavor in these, and as I torn open the corner of the bag powerful ginger aroma wafted out. Very nice.

            I did notice that all the Haribo gummies were the same price ($1.89), but every other flavor comes in a 5 oz bag, while the ginger-lemon are 4 oz. That's okay, I don't need extra candy...
