What an egg-cellent alternative to chocolate this Easter! Haribo’s Easter Egg is filled to the brim with tasty treats including Starmix, Tangfastics, Kiddies Supermix, Strawbs and Goldbears. The egg is dairy free, providing the perfect option for those with lactose intolerance. Hunt with Haribo is also a new range which is packed with gums and jellies in bunny, chick and lamb shaped pieces.
