When it comes to sour gummy treats that tease the taste buds with a perfect balance of tartness and sweetness, HARIBO Tangfastics stands apart. It’s not just another candy; it’s a flavour journey that has captivated fans for years.
Origins of the Tangtastic Sensation
While HARIBO itself dates back to 1920, founded by Hans Riegel in Bonn, Germany, the introduction of Tangfastics to their extensive lineup came much later. The idea was to offer a zestier, tangier twist to the classic gummy – a challenge to the senses, for those who dared to venture beyond the usual. While the exact date of its introduction is a closely guarded company secret, what’s undeniable is its unwavering popularity over the years.
Tangfastics, like many of HARIBO’s creations, uses gelatine as a key ingredient, which means it’s not suitable for vegans. However, it is suitable for vegetarians who consume gelatine. As for its Halal suitability, HARIBO does offer a separate range of products made with beef gelatine that adheres to Halal standards, but it’s always advisable to check the specific packaging to ensure compliance.

Ah, the heart of Tangfastics – its delectably diverse mix of flavours. While the pack bursts with an assortment, some standout favourites include:
