Freche Füchse or Cheeky Foxes are a cute, chewy gummy Haribo product from Germany.
There’s not an awful lot to say about these sweet little things, so let’s start with what Haribo say themselves! Via a Google translate, of course…
Fans of the popular flavor of Cola may look forward to. HARIBO cheeky foxes create a trendy taste experience with the mix combination of cola and orange lemonade. Through this inspiration, they refresh every everyday life. | Haribo.de
The combination of Cola and Orange might sound new but it’s actually a really popular flavour combination here for a soft drink. There are three different brands I know of which produce it:
That being said, there are many Spezi drinks; some can use the brand name and some can’t. You can find out a bit more here. For those in doubt, “Cola-Mix” is the generic description for a cola mixed with orange lemonade. A drink I know as orangeade.
So this bag of gummy foxes contains three different flavours. There’s cola, cola with orangeade and orangeade. The sniff test tells me this smells like a bag of cola bottles.
As with any standard Haribo gummy, these have a hard, tough chew. The foxes are nicely designed and very cute. I particularly like the look of the mixed foxes, with the darker body and orange heads!
So how do they taste? Just like you think they would! The fully cola ones taste like cola bottles and the fully orange ones taste like a lightly lemon kissed orange. The combination foxes were actually my favourite, giving a gentle citrus flavour to the usual cola. Like popping ice and a slice in your drink – only without the ice part.
If you fancy a bag of cola bottles with a twist, this would be a fun alternative.
