Which Haribo Sweet You're Most Likely to Grab from the Bag

When it comes to HARIBO, we all have a favorite. Whether it’s one of those squidgy fried eggs, delicious love hearts, or cute little gummy bears, we know exactly which ones we want to scoop first. But what are the chances of picking out your favorite from a bag and how might that differ from pack to pack?

Magnet, opened one hundred 190g bags of HARIBO Starmix and counted a whopping 5,738 sweets in a bid to find out which sweet you’re most likely to pick from your mix. After counting (and eating) our way through 100 bags, here’s what they found…


In a 190g bag of HARIBO Starmix, you have the highest chance of grabbing a gummy bear- as they make up a whopping 38% of the bag. There’s a one in five (20%) chance of picking out a ring, a 16% chance of snatching a heart and 14% chance of choosing a cola bottle. That just leaves the foamy fried egg, which you have a one in eight (12%) chance of picking out of a pack.

Using these calculations, we’ve also worked out what an average bag of 190g Haribo Starmix is made up of…


The least common sweet which makes up an eighth of a bag is the foamy fried egg, with an average pack count of 7. Sharing a pack with gummy bear fanatics? You’re in luck, as they’re the most common in a pack with a generous 22 bears to share or scoff.

HARIBO Starmix is a household favorite no matter where in the country you reside in. Intrigued as to which city favors each sweet the most, we asked 2,004 UK people to reveal who’s reaching for what in a bag.


Whether you’re more likely to grab a gummy bear or fish out a fried egg, these family favorites are usually gone before you can ask ‘are there any rings left?’.
