Haribo Gummi Candy Gold-Bears, 5-Pound Bag
Haribo Gummy Gold Bears Candy is soft, chewy and translucent. And they are bursting with beary yummy flavor. There is nothing quite as whimsically delicious as gummy bears, a candy popular the world over for its sprightly personality and fruity taste. Squeeze them, line them up and make them dance, or just plain eat them. Haribo Gold-Bears are a mixed delight of white/pineapple, green/strawberry, yellow/lemon, orange/orange, and red/raspberry gummy bears.
One 5-pound bag containing approximately 985 pieces
Naturally flavored with balanced sweetness
Mouth watering, colorful candy
Flavors are pineapple (white), strawberry (green), lemon (yellow), orange (orange), and raspberry (red)

These truly are the best gummi bears in the world!Sep 01, 2006
By Mr. Miles Chen
The first time I encountered Haribo Gummi Bears was when I went to Germany for a semester overseas. I won a bag of these as a classroom prize.
At first, I thought these were going to be ordinary gummy bears, but, boy was I wrong. These candies truly are a step above all other gummy bears. In Germany, this is THE brand of gummy bears. Competitors' bags are sold at much lower prices, but few people buy them - and that's because the difference in quality and taste is noticeable. The other people's reviews regarding sweetness and softness are accurate. Haribo has found the perfect combination.
During the rest of my stay in Germany, I became a huge consumer of Haribo candies. Haribo sells other gummy candies, but their "Gold Bears" are the best.
When I returned to beautiful America, I was disappointed to find that Haribo is not so easy to acquire. They are sold online at other stores at decent prices but after shipping, the cost was quite steep.
I am truly excited to see these bears offered on Amazon with free super-saver shipping.
If you have never had Haribo Gummi Bears, you really need to try some. A 5-pound bag seems like a large quantity, but I promise, you will not be disappointed.
Edit: Nov 2, 2008 - When I wrote this review two years ago, Haribo was still quite difficult to find at grocery stores. It seems today that I can find them just about anywhere. In this case, Amazon still provides a really great deal on 5 lb bags. If you don't want 5 lbs, you can shop at a local grocery store.
But I must recommend this: if you will not eat all of the gummy bears right away, transfer them to an air tight container. If you leave the gummy bears exposed to the air, they will get very stiff after a while.

Directly opposed to previous reviewOct 25, 2009
I'm giving these a 5-star rating specifically because they are not vegetarian.
This is to counteract the fact that somebody gave them a 1-star rating for the same reason.
Also, they are delicious.
So is steak.

Nice little treat for the kids--and yourselfOct 08, 2006
By Joanna Daneman
These gummis are by far the best; the taste is tart and sweet, and the consistency is yes, gummy but not sticky. The bears resist the teeth with a pleasant rubbery consistency. And the outside is lightly dusted to prevent sticking together--however, they will melt with high temperatures in the Texas summer. They are nice mixed in trail mix for hiking, by the way.
A five pound bag is a lot, but if you pack a few every day in the kids' lunch bags, they will disappear. They are great for teaching counting, too. Or getting things done. Put a bowl of gummis out and an empty bowl next to it. When one task is done, put a gummi in the empty bowl. At the end of your list, eat the gummis. Yummi.

The Perfect BearsAug 17, 2006
By Karin D.
Haribo's Gold Bears are the best gummy bears I've ever had, and I've had a LOT of different gummy bears.
A lot of brands are way too sweet and way too soft - they're almost like slightly firmer Jello, but Haribo's are just right. Not too sweet, not mushy-soft. Just right. The perfect bears.
Haribo's flavors are yummy, mellow, and not so sickeningly sweet as cheap-o brands. The crappy super-sweet bears are so sweet that my teeth feel funny after I chew them (like they're instantly rotting from the excess sugar), and they give me a stomachache.
Haribo Gold Bears! The perfect bears!

Five glorious pounds of GUMMI!Jul 10, 2009
By Gordon Ewasiuk
I can't open this bag. It is just too beautiful. Five glorious pounds of gummi. It sits on my kitchen table. The rainbow of colors twinkling in the sunlight. Every time I get close to picking this HUGE bag up, my heart starts racing.
These Gummis were made in Turkey and imported into Baltimore.
The bag is not resealable so ensure you have some tupperware or a resealable bag when you open it. A resealable bag is a must. Gummis that have been exposed to air will harden and lose flavor. To waste a single, solitary gummi would be a crime.
For those who track such things, the average gummi serving is 17 pieces. That serving will get you 140 calories. With FIVE pounds of gummis, you will be counting all night long.
It takes, on average, approximately 45 minutes for a gummi to melt away in your mouth -- that is, if you can keep it in your mouth that long. Most people, myself included, will immediately start chewing on the gummi to get at the tasty fruit flavors.
Speaking of flavors, let's talk about the goodness that goes into a gummi. There are many ingredients: Corn Syrup, Sugar, Gelatin, Dextrose, Citric Acid, Starch, Artificial and Natural Flavors, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Caarnauba Wax, Beeswax Coating, and Artificial Colors -- Yellow 4, Red 40, and Blue 1.
I'm not sure how they cram all those ingredients into a gummi less than an inch tall and a 1/4 wide...but they do...and it tastes amazing.
Even now, as I write this review, I'm enjoying a pair of gummis. My mouth is doing a dance as I type.
You won't be disappointed.
