HARIBO has announced the debut of a brand new jelly variety – Wild Berry.
The snack company introduced Wild Berry Goldbears as its new offering nationwide.
The bears are similar to the typical Haribo gold bears, but are infused with various berry flavors.
Blueberry, wild cherry, strawberry, raspberry and wild berry are all part of the flavor combination.
“HARIBO fans tell us they love our texture and flavor combinations, and Wild Berry Goldbears is a nod to that for a perfect summer treat,” said Rick LaBerge, Chief Commercial Officer of Haribo of America.
“HARIBO has been the world’s number one rubber brand for over a century because we stay true to our heritage while driving innovation, and it’s all inspired by our consumers,” he continued.
The new bears have already sparked interest on the internet.
“Okay, I NEED this…” said one fan on Reddit.
“I tried them, they’re really good and a nice new flavor for Haribo bears,” said another.
A potential customer was excited but also made a suggestion.
“These look good, imagine sour,” they said alongside a drooling emoji.
