Haribo Little Cupcakes
These Haribo Little Cupcakes have been sat there on the shelf in Tesco for a while now, annoyingly calling me to try them. Don't they know I already consume enough sugar to feed a small army?!
I finally plopped them in my basket, in need of some weekend sweets. They cost 98p or so, are not suitable for vegetarians and implore you to "create your own delicious cupcake creations with a caramel or lemon biscuit base, finishing it off with either a blueberry, orange, lemon, cherry, vanilla or strawberry topping".
Annoyingly, there were no strawberry toppings in my bag, boo! There also seemed to be an over-abundance of biscuit bases to toppings.
I do love the idea of these I have to say. It's a lot of fun creating your own flavour combinations, and how cute do they look?
The caramel biscuit bases had a strong sweet caramel flavour, with definite hints of biscuit, and they went perfectly with all the toppings I tried. The blueberry in particular was very tasty, as was vanilla and cherry. The lemon biscuit bases were nice and even had a hint of ginger thrown in, but I didn't like them as much as the caramel; the citrusy flavour doesn't work so well. Nevertheless these are all highly moreish and addictive, whichever flavour combo you go for.
Overall, I have to say these are a fantastic concept from Haribo and make for a lot of fun, I imagine kids and big kids alike will love them. They would also make a perfect Christmas stocking filler!
