Haribo Tangfastics Summer Frenzy Ice Cream & Sorbet Flavours
There seems to be a new Haribo Limited Edition for every season nowadays; the last few Summers they had the Frenzy Editions, which I thought were returning again this year. But it seems not...instead we're getting these "Summer Frenzy" Tangfastics which contain Ice Cream & Sorbet Flavours, and Starmix Summer Frenzy with Berry Flavours.
The ice cream flavours are Passionfruit, Mango, Bubblegum, Peach, Watermelon and Rhubarb & Custard...
Whilst the Sorbet flavours are Peach and Guava, Mango & Passionfruit and Pink Grapefruit.
Being honest I think this is quite a random mix of flavours for ice cream and sorbets...I mean when was the last time anyone bought a tub of watermelon ice cream? No matter, Haribo flavours are usually better in practice than on paper.
There were lots of Rhubarb and custard "Cherries" in the bag, and as nice as they were they became a big boring after a while. They tasted quite similar to Haribo Rhubarb and Custard Splats.
The rings were a bit different from usual and very tasty, with two tropical flavours combined into one. The pink grapefruit bottles were nice enough, but definitely not a worthy replacement for cola bottles.
The various fruit flavoured dinosaurs were all good; tangy and tropical. The Bubblegum ice cream ones were great, with the perfect Bubblegum flavour, although I suspect they've they've just reused the Bubblegum Splats formula.
Overall, as always with Haribo this Limited Edition is a mixed bag, quite literally! There's some nice tropical fruit flavours going on which make a nice change, but it's a stretch to call them ice cream flavours. When I think of ice cream I think vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, caramel, mint...these would have been more accurately described as just Sorbet Flavours. Nevertheless, it's a tasty bag of sweets and I'm sure will be very popular this summer.
Now, I need to try the Starmix Summer Frenzy with Berry flavours...stay tuned for a review!
