Favourite Haribo Starmix

One of my fondest memories of Belle as a child was the time, about ten years ago, when she found a cola bottle in a mini bag of HARIBO Gold Bears. Belle is the kind of person who likes everything JUST SO, so whereas a more typical child might not even notice, or just think ‘oh a cola bottle’ and eat it anyway, Belle decided that she needed to take action.

She was still surfing the wave of justice from having recently received a £2 voucher from Walkers because of finding a crisp that was ‘a bit funny looking’, so she was confident that she could make cola-bottle-gate work in her favour. She took photographs, sent them to HARIBO with a stern note, and a couple of weeks later was rewarded with an apology and a large packet of Starmix.

Her work was done. Justice was served.


If you find something you’re not expecting in a packet of HARIBO over the next few weeks, don’t be too quick to trade it in for a second bag of sweets, as it could be your ticket to a luxury UK family break with Forest Holidays.

HARIBO are putting on their own special Easter egg hunt, with the chance to win one of 20 eggs-cellent family breaks. (See what I did there?)

First up you need to look out for the limited edition bags of HARIBO Starmix, available in store now:

Crack open the bag – (Crack? Egg? Get it?) – and have a rummage through the much loved egg, bottle, heart, ring and bear shaped pieces. Take a moment to consider your favourites. Perhaps you want to rank them in order of preference and compare your findings with friends and family?

This would be my line up – I’m eggs-tremely fond of the white foamy bits on the eggs and hearts:

Take a closer look at those eggs…

All of my eggs had single yolks (boo!) but if you’re lucky enough to find one of the 20 hand-crafted ‘double yolkers’, hidden randomly in amongst the cola bottles and gummi bears alongside its winning ticket, then you’ve won a holiday! Yep, it’s that easy. Bag yourself a double yolker – one eggs, two yolks – and you’re off on an eggs-citing family holiday!

(Sorry, I’ll stop now.)

Grab yourself a bag of limited edition HARIBO Starmix before April 21st and get hunting!

And finally, the important question – what would your Starmix line-up look like?

    I’d pretty much go for the complete opposite to you! Cola bottle, ring, teddy bear, heart, egg (double yolker or not :-))

      All this time I thought this was just the ACCEPTED order, but the more people I speak to the more it seems I’m in a minority! Good news for me really as if I ever find myself sharing a bag with you you can let me have all the eggs and hearts :-)

    I see a flaw in this promotion, how do you stop your family scoffing the double yolker before you claim the prize, because they are a favourite in our house

      I thought the same! But you get a ticket in the packet as well in case you accidentally eat it without realising :-)
