Help! European Candy Chewy Fruit

Thu Apr 18, 2013 11:13 pm

I feel like an idiot posting this but I need help from my friends across the pond! You have a soft chewy candy that is fruit flavored and some are honey filled and I need the name!

I can see them, I can taste them, I know exactly what I'm looking for but cannot for the life of me think of the name of this candy! They are like Mamba but better. They come in a "roll" and are kind of packaged like Starburst. If someone is going by the store or a gift shop just take a picture of the candy section and post it ill find it!

Thank you for all the help. I'm not going to be back in that area for a while and was going to order some on Amazon but I need to know what it is that I am looking for!

When you say 'Europe' where do you mean exactly? Being a little bit more specific would help - we're still different countries with different products available in different nations (at the moment) !

Well I've seen them in the UK, Cyprus, Germany, and Austria! If someone works at LeMeridian Hotel in Limassol I know for a fact their gift shop carries them, I clear them out each time I am there!

In England you can find such candy under the name Maynards Winegums. In the Netherlands Fruit-tella is an option (though not honey flavoured).

If it's neither of those, Haribo is a large candy brands that can be found all over Europe. If you look at their website you might find what you're looking for. Large Dutch brands include Red Band and Klene.

Ooooooh, you rascal!   

We do have some disgusting stuff, as does anywhere! We also have some very good stuff. As a side note - what in particular do you dislike here in the UK, Aesma?

That's it!!!!!

I wanted to say the name was something like Nutella but I knew that was wrong! I spent over an hour searching Google to find this candy and all I needed to do was post on Anet! I love this site!

Again thank you so much!

I had no idea what Mamba was so I googled it. The equivalent of that over here is MAOAM, but I've never heard of honey filled ones... Do you have anymore clues?

EDIT: Oh I see you got it. Fruit-tellas forgot they existed!

There were a few possibilities but Honey I have never heard of unless I'm having a mental block. Can you describe the colour of the pack and are they individually wrapped?

EDIT : Problem solved. Never seen Frutella Honey flavor though .

I am ALMOST sure that I had some that had honey in them last time. They were not honey flavored but had a honey filled center maybe? Or maybe I was just eating something else that day!

Trans fats don't scare me, I have no desire to live a loooooong life. The quicker delicious food takes me out the better! I think all of us working at this Chicago based airline feel about that way after this looooong week which is about to get much worse.....

Never heard of honey flavored Fruitella in France or Belgium... Also I would never have thought one could order Fruitella on Amazon

As far as I have found out so far one can order ANYTHING on Amazon! I have yet to find something I cannot buy which is a really good thing since I will never have actual time to go buy things working here! It's bad when your "home" address is really your office because you never actually leave it!
