Haribo gummy bears with 30% less sugar! What an idea. But do the new gummy bears taste like 30% less sugar? really as good as the normal gummy bears? How do the new varieties Haribo Fruitilicious, Sea Friends and Penguinstaste. That and whether the sugar-reduced gummy bears are worth it, she learns in this review. So let’s just start with the Haribo gummy bear test.
The nutritional values of the gummy bears with 30% less sugar:
It’s best to start with the nutritional values. After all, these are the real reason to choose the sugar-reduced version of Haribo’s fruit gums instead of the conventional Haribo’s. A glance at the specified nutrition table quickly reveals what the new varieties are promising. Because they do not have the same nutritional values as common gummy bears. Because on 100g, with just 34g of sugar, they actually have almost 30% less sugar than the conventional Haribo gums. Of course, this is also reflected in the total calorie content per 100g. Unlike the normal Haribo fruit gums, the new fruit gums have only 284 calories and not 343 calories. This means that you save not only a part of the sugar when you eat it, but also almost 60 calories! In addition, the increased fiber content is noticeable. Which has a positive effect on the health factor of Haribo’s.

What are the ingredients for sugar-reduced gummy bears
But these nutritional values naturally immediately raise the question: What is behind the gummy bears with 30% less sugar. So what are the ingredients of the new Haribo varieties? So if you turn the pack around and take a look at the ingredients, it’s immediately noticeable that, just like the normal gummy bears, they are simply made of gelatin flavourings, fruit juice concentrate and sugar.
How do sugar-reduced gummy bears taste?
In terms of taste, I must be able to say the new varieties: HARIBO Fruitilicious, Fruity Penguins and Sea Friends definitely convince. Because the low-calorie gummy bears taste just like the normal gummy bears from the supermarket. I even think they taste a little better, but that can also be a head thing.
Are low-calorie gummy bears really what they promise?
Haribo itself advertises that the new Haribo’s also “with 30% less sugar they still have the same, super fruity taste” as the conventional gummy bears. As I mentioned in the taste test, I share this conviction. Because even after I had given the Haribo’s to my parents to try, they couldn’t tell if the Haribo they ate were the sugar-reduced or the normal fruit gums.
