Things I Love: Haribo Cola Gummi Candy

Haribo Gummi Candy, Happy-Cola, 5-Ounce BagI’ve spoken at length about my devotion to Marks & Spencer’s fruit gums. So if you can’t tell, I love gummy candies and one of the best in market has got to be Haribo’s Happy Cola Gummy Candy. It really is the perfect combination – coca cola and gummy candy. I happen to love both.

Each individual gummy in the bag is shaped like a coke bottle. For the most part, the texture is nice and chewy unless you get a rogue hard piece. The coke flavour is also very nice. I’m a fan fan fan.

Haribo Gummi Candy, Fizzy Cola, 5-Ounce Bags (Pack of 12)

But did you know it can get even better? Haribo also came out with Fizzy Cola. It’s exactly like the original, except with an added sour, sweet, tangy coating.

Fuckin delicious. Excuse my language.

 

Things I Love: Ferrero Rocher

I cannot even begin to describe my lifelong love for Ferrero Rocher!!! I love it, I love it, I freakin love it. I’m not a person that craves chocolate, but Ferrero Rocher is its own food group as far as I’m concerned. Popular opinion is on my side too, just look at this chart below:

To me, Ferrero Rocher is the perfect gold nugget of chocolate hazelnut goodness. It’s not overwhelmingly chocolate-ty, which I love. According to Wikipedia, Ferrero Rocher consists of a whole roasted hazelnut encased in a thin wafer shell filled with hazelnut chocolate and covered in milk chocolate and chopped hazelnuts. AKA PERFECTION!!

Anyway, I love Ferrero Rocher. It’s the best chocolate in the world. Coming in at a distant second is Kinder Bueno (chocolate bar made of crispy wafer + hazelnut filling). Can you tell? I love hazelnut 🙂

 

Things I Love: Marks & Spencer Fruit Gums

fruit gumsI am obsessed with Fruit Gums from M&S. Like seriously unconditionally OBSESSED!!!

I grew up eating these soft, chewy sweets as a kid living in the 852. There are 5 flavours: blackcurrant (black), lime (green), orange (orange), raspberry (red), and lemon (yellow). My aunt used to pick me up occasionally from ballet practice in Tai Koo and we’d wandered over to the Marks & Spencer near there. She’d buy herself wine gums while I go straight for the fruit gums and red currant puffs. Many many years later, I’m still extremely fond of fruit gums. Alas, I’m now based mostly in the States, where sadly, there’s no Marks & Spencer!!! Although, it’s really for the best because I tend to eat literally 3 packs by myself in one sitting. No joke, these fruit gums are crack!!

You can find these fruit gums at the food section in Marks & Spencer (obviously) or online here. Note: they’ve since changed packaging. The picture on the website I linked to isn’t even the most recent packaging. The most recent one is orangey yellow and has a see-through section so you know what you’re getting. Personally, my favourite flavours are red and black!!
