    HARIBO is UK’s favourite travel sweet, survey shows

    HARIBO has emerged as the top pick for British road trips, shows a recently released Carwow’s survey.

    The latest research conducted by Carwow asked drivers to vote for their favourite travel sweet and confectionery brands. HARIBO was the clear winner, with nearly one fifth of survey respondents naming this as their go-to sweet to inject the fun and moments of childlike happiness into lengthy car journeys.

    In second place came Werther’s Originals with 12 per cent of Brits voting for this sweet, whereas one in ten of the respondents said Fruit Pastilles are their confection of choice.

    HARIBO has stolen the hearts of Gen Z and Millennials, with over half (52 per cent) of younger respondents voting for this iconic sweet. Older generations typically opted for butterscotch Werther’s Originals, with 44 per cent of baby boomers voting for this sweet from the survey.

    Gender split showed that men and women’s sweet choices are united, with both selecting HARIBO as their favourite. Other top picks included Trebor Extra Strong Mints, Smarties, Percy Pigs, and Liquorice Allsorts.

    Less sweet with consumers, the least preferred treats for road trips were Midget Gems (2 per cent) and Fox’s Glacier Mints (3 per cent). Other unpopular sweets were Mentos and Starburst.

    John Rawlings, Consumer Editor at Carwow said, “During lengthy road trips, it’s the small comforts that help to keep our energy levels up. The practicality of the packaging is a big consideration, as minimising messiness in the car is important on long journeys. So, it’s no wonder that HARIBO has been crowned the winner.

    “Sweets also serve as a great way to beat travel sickness, and it’s easy to see why HARIBO would be the perfect remedy for this.”

    Louise Fox, head of marketing for HARIBO UK and Ireland, said,HARIBO is crowned the UK’s favourite travel sweet “Whenever you’re on the go, in the car, on a bus or a train, or maybe flying to an exotic destination, there’s nothing like grabbing a bag of HARIBO for a spontaneous moment of childlike happiness.

    Who wouldn’t love Goldbear to accompany them on a road trip? Along with rings, crocs, hearts, ice creams and jelly babies, HARIBO offers an incredible variety of different, high-quality textures and flavours, that are all gloriously mess-free. Perfect for keeping drivers and passengers alike happy.

There’s no need to leave the UK to taste the tropi – HARIBO will do the job, no matter the weather.”
