Tangfastics not tangy any more

26
Found 2nd May 2017
as the title says, does anyone else agree that Haribo Tangfastics aren't sour or tangy any more ?
i emailed Haribo last week and received a reply saying they are sorry I was not happy with my purchase ? thats obviously an automated reply.
when tangfastics were originally released they made peoples cheeks suck in and your eyes water, but now they are just standard Haribos with sugar on in my opinion.

​i dont think they can afford them
Were they ever anything other than standard Haribo with sugar on? Finding properly sour sweets is very difficult. I haven't found any in recent years.

More importantly, Space Raiders are no longer tangy either.

American sour skittles are one of those most sour sweets I've had. Suck them for a bit and by the end of the pack they've burnt the skin away on your tongue! So much more sour (and nicer) than the UK version.

WRONG!

TEN packs of pickled onion then rinse your mouth with Listerine. I swear you cry in between the bouts of passing in and out of conscious.

Oh, they're made by the same company as Toxic Waste? They are my most disappointing sour sweet of all time. The only good thing I can say for them is they come in a barrel, which reminds me of the Toxic Waste level of Crash Bandicoot.

Using Listerine is cheating. You shouldn't need mouthwash to make your corn snacks tangy X)

Oh, bad assumption by me then. Sorry.
Everything in the 80s/ 90's was bigger portions and tasted better....Feast for crying out loud is not the same...Taste of Coke has change completely and less fizz....Cadbury's tasted much better back in the day, i wish i could go back to the 80s/90s.

​you just reminded me of Uncle Rico from the Napoleon Dynamite film
Forgive the untimely bump, but I tried Aldi's "Fizz Mania" sweets today and they're solid. Pretty much like Tangfastics used to be. 49p for a 230g bag too!
no need to apologise mate, we need all the sourness we can get . wish Aldi was 24 hour
