Sour Gold-Bears's Reviews

's review Tracy, California

Better than Sour Patch Kids. I love Haribo gummy bears. Normally, my least favorite gummy bear is the pineapple flavored bear but with these sour flavored gummies the pineapple is the best! It killed me to wait to share them with my husband but I knew he would really enjoy them. I'm glad I did, they made his night.

's review Littlerock,

I've loved these since I was a kid and haven't had them in so long and getting to sample them and try them again rekindled my love! My kids really loved them to I like watching their funny faces because of how sour they are, yet sweet! I love everything HARIBO makes, its a very stand up company that makes good food. I would reccommend this and any of thier products.

A tantalizingly sweet-tart tongue tease! If you love sour candy these soft sour gummies are for you. wonderfuly fruity flavors (pineapple is my favorite) with that sour tang you want, and a mouth-pleasing texture that's not too hard. A new entry on my treat list.

's review Pensacola, Florida

Appearing here in order of my preference, the flavors are as follows:

White- Pineapple

Green - Strawberry

Red - Raspberry

Yellow - Lemon

Orange - Orange

Appearance wise these bears are very much what you would expect - colorful, whimsically bear shaped candies covered in white granules of what one would assume is sour flavoring. They packaging was pleasant, Gold with strong lettering and a nice sized window to view your treats through. It was also quite easy to open, though I would prefer a resealable bag.

Flavor - I will admit that upon receiving the bag I didn't pay any attention to the flavors before diving in (and they aren't prominently displayed) so I was pleasantly surprised when I grabbed a Pineapple one first off. The flavors are all strong and true to what they should be, but to me they weren't at all sour. The sour powder may as well have not existed. While for me that isn't/wasn't a deal breaker, I could see how it might be rather disappointing to someone who was really hoping/looking for that sour flavor. There is nothing worse than craving something and not having any way to satisfy it.

Texturally I was a bit put off. I am a bit texture person and when things aren't as I expect them to be I kind of whig out a bit. These were considerably tougher/chewier than I anticipated. They aren't really the type of gummy candy that you happily bite the heads off of and stick the bodies together in a weird act of playing god. Instead you must chew and chew before they begin to break down. That is pretty disappointing to me, but I will say that it allows you to get satisfied off of fewer bears, so maybe that is a win?

On a more personal note, I must say that I was ecstatic to find that the Green bear was indeed Strawberry and not Green Apple. I cannot stand Green Apple, because I associate it with the scent of Stink Bugs, and thus most green candies these days are off limits.

's review Mc Kee,

My family liked the Haribo Sour Gold Bears that I received from Swaggable. The gummy bears are not as sour as I thought they would be. I like that the bag includes a variety of different sour gummy flavors. I like the Sour Gold Bears, but they are a little tough to chew. My daughter really liked the Haribo Sour Gold Bears and has already asked me to buy her some more.

's review Modesto, California

To be perfectly honest I am not a huge fan of Gummi Candy or Sour Candy. So when I was offered to try out the new Haribo Sour Gold-Bear gummi candy, I was a bit hesitant. However I am so glad I decided to try them. They aren't too sour at all, they are instead a perfect blend of sour that melts away to sweetness. I enjoyed every last one (they were too good to share!) My favorite flavor is the lemon, which my bag happened to have a lot of! I highly recommend giving these yummy gummies a try!

's review Tucson, Arizona

Now, I live in Tucson, and it was hot when these were delivered... so there are some points I should touch on before I begin.  First, I advise against leaving gummy bears in your mailbox for 4 hours when it's 80 degrees outside.  Some of them begin to form unions, if you know what I mean.  Also of note, sour powder does not survive these unions.  So I only had about half a bag of Haribo Sour Gold-Bears to start with.  Secondly, though I enjoy gummy candies, I am not the mass consumer of sour gummies that my children are, so for the most part, in this, I defer to their judgement.

The texture of the Sour Gold Bears was exactly that of the regular Gold Bears, if you are familiar with them.  Easily bitten through and gummy without being chewy, unlike their worm counterparts.  Each Bear represents a distinct flavor according to the color of the bear, and the flavor is uniform throughout.  The sour in the name is seemingly derived from the tart powder that adheres to the outside of the gummy bear.  As such, the sour bite only lasts for a few seconds after the initial introduction to the mouth.  You are then left with the more typical gummy bear experience that Haribo is known for.

My children want me to point out that the sour bite is not impressive.  It's more like they are tangy than actually sour.  For me, this was fine.  For the kids, they were left wishing for Sweet-Tarts, and lemonheads.  Clearly not sour enough to satisfy the connoiseurs of sour candy.  We then proceeded to polish off the bag... and yes, even those joined in candy matrimony.

Maybe these are the more adult version of sour candy.  I'll definitely eat them again.  Not so much for the kiddos (both teenagers btw not youngins).  Both of them independently said that they would have preferred plain Gold-Bears over the sour version, and both said the powder made them too sweet.  Whatever that means.

I do apologize for the mixed review.  I guess if you are looking to satisfy a sour craving, I'd recommend something else.  On the other hand, if you want something like gummy bears, but a little different, go for it.  They aren't bad.
