Which of Your Favourite Haribo Sweets Are Vegetarian?
There are many reasons why we might want to cut out meat from our diets, or at least cut down on the amount of animal products we consume. Some of us do it for ethical reasons, others out of environmental concern, and some of us do it because we need to cut down on saturated fats and eat more vitamins. But a vegetarian or even vegan diet doesn’t mean that we have to give up on the tasty treats we love. When we think of a beloved sweet brand like Haribo, we often think of succulent, sweet chewy goodies that make our mouths water. But did you know that some Haribo sweets are vegetarian-friendly?
You can have a satisfyingly chewy, sweet and tasty treat without the need for gelatine. Join us as we embark on a journey through the vegetarian Haribo sweets available right now. Eating more ethically shouldn’t mean that you have to turn your back on the treats you love.
Be sure to stock up on these delicious vegetarian sweets…
1. Giant strawbs
Plump, juicy, succulent and delicious, strawbs are the perfect addition to any vegetarian Pick n Mix combination. The sweet, fruity and subtly tangy flavour is long-lasting and good to the last chew. Making these the perfect sweets for any occasion, whether you’re setting up an irresistible candy buffet for friends, or enjoying a movie night in with the family. And if your diet is 100% plant-based, good news! Strawbs are also suitable for vegans.
2. Jelly Beans
Let’s face it. It’s never not a good time to have some jelly beans! Tiny, tasty, and bursting with sweetness, jelly beans are a delicious and satisfying treat for all kinds of occasions. They’re the perfect example of vegetarian Haribo. And because they come in all kinds of flavours, you can munch on them for as long as you like, yet never get bored.
These beans may not count towards your five portions of fruit and veg per day, but they’re a bright, cheerful, colourful and oh-so-tasty snack that’s sure to bring a burst of sunshine to even the rainiest and gloomiest winter day. Please note that because the soft outer shell of these jelly beans contains beeswax, they are not considered suitable for vegans.
3. Happy Cherries
Another fruity favourite, happy cherries are a sweet, tangy taste sensation with a satisfyingly soft and chewy texture beneath a layer of fizzy dusting. Perfect for all occasions, these cherry flavoured Haribo sweets are sure to put a smile on your face. And they're not only vegetarian but vegan-friendly, too.
4. Fizzy Cola Bottles
It’s okay to admit it. It’s just not a pick n mix without cola bottles. But while most cola bottles contain gelatine, these tasty fizzy cola bottles are 100% vegetarian. Their satisfyingly chewy texture instead comes from a combination of glucose syrup and natural plant starches. A sweet and refreshing treat that everyone can enjoy!
