Gummy Bear Obsession...

I just love gummy bears...I can eat them all day long till I get bloated..nuff said... 
The obsession for these cute little bears started when I first came to Germany.Well, if it isn't the land where gummy bears originated.The name Gummy Bear comes from the German word "Gummibär" but normally people would call them Gummibärchen (little bears) due to their cute tiny size.

Are you addicted to gummy bears too? Blame it on Hans Riegel, the inventor of gummy bears in the year 1922.He invented these yummy tummy bear-shaped confectionery and founded the Haribo company.Guess where the famous name Haribo comes from? Hans Riegel from Bonn!!!


Haribo is like Maggi in Malaysia.The name Haribo is synonym for gummi bears just like Maggi is well known for instant noodle.When you think of gummy bears, you would think of Haribo.Well apart from Haribo, there are other brands of gummy bears that are also well-known and giving a good competition to Haribo, such as Bärentreff, Bärenland, Bären Company just to name a few.

There's a wide array of choices on gummy bears.They come in various flavours, shapes, textures, colours and sizes. Not forgetting the sour, bio, vegetarian and sugar-free versions. Wowee..plenty to choose from...rambang mata terus...

Unfortunately, I can't buy the Haribo gummy bears from the supermarket as they contain pork gelatine.My alternative is to get the Haribo gummy bears from the turkish shops.Siap ada tanda halal from Malaysia & Asia Region plak..But2 they are not made in Germany.. Howoe...Hampa..

Halal Gummy bears...oh and marshmallows too..

So what do I do? I get the gummy bears from other brands like Bärentreff, Bärenland or Bären Company but only those without gelatine..Yeah2..I know the texture won't be the same with those contained gelatine but they still taste awesome..So yeah..And the best part is, there's no gelatine from pork or beef. So everyone can enjoy them...teruja kan..

I bought these to bring back to Malaysia..hee..chomeyl kan..

Oh the shape of the gummi bears from Bären Company is a bit different from others..siap ada peace yáll!

Before I end this post, lemme share this video with all of you.The song entitled "I'm A Gummy Bear" is a dance song by German composer Christian Schneider.The song has been translated in at least twenty five languages and has virally spread worldwide with more than 1 billion plays of the corresponding videos on YouTube and MySpace. Crazeeeee!!!
(Source from Wikipedia)

This video has the original german version along with 7 other languages..Enjoy!

 
Annoying tapi tapi nak sing along jugak...

 Oh guess what? Gummi bears are one of the candies that have been turned into a television show...
Sadly, the show only ran from 1985 till 1990...tengok siaran ulangan jerla..

 My favourite Gummibärchen ever...

I'm looking forward to pursue my degree at German after i'm finishing my A-Level.do you have any advice for me?

Nabil Aizat Abdul Rahman said...

to Monalessa:
Hai Mona.I'm doing mechanical engineering.I'm studying at a university of applied science(Fachhochschule).Everything is taught in German.Fachhochschule is different that the normal uni because you'll also have practical other than just theory.The lesson in Uni will mostly be taught in English.but there'll be more theory..
