Price:- £1.00 for a 220g bag
Purchased from My local corner shop
I love the haribo range but marshmallows are my favourite I love them. I can only eat about a handful before I feel full. I was looking in my local shop for a bag of sweets. My Saturday sugar fix ( no judging allowed it's Saturday)
I find the price is excellent and it seems to be the only bag of sweets that the pice hasn't changed for as long as I can remember. I expect someone to comment on this and tell me that it was cheaper way before I was born (haha)
The bag contains white and pink marshmallows I don't know the exact amount per bag as I didn't count but the bag isn't mostly air which is a given bonus. I don't think there is any difference between the pink and white marshmallows apart from the colour. The bag lasts me quite a while and as long as you fold over the top they stay fresh and yummy. The marshmallows have a very nice soft texture and
Each 40g serving contains
Energy 135 calories
Of which sugars 26g
Of which saturates 0g
These marshmallows are amazing so delicious and NO FAT, quite a few calories which isn't great for the figure but everyone is allowed a treat once in a while.
I would recommend these sweets for anyone who isn't a vegetarian ( unfortunately not suitable due to gelatine) they are delicious .There are also no artificial colours or flavours.
These marshmallows come in a large plastic bag (I believe you can also get these in big tubs too). You get quite a few in a bag (at a guess I'd say you get more than 20). The bag consists of pink and white marshmallows.
When you open the bag, you are greeted with a sweet smell. It is a kind of artificial sweetness, yet it is so inviting. Each marshmallow is all soft and squishy. They are not covered in flour which is good as it means that you don't make a mess. The marshmallows are quite light.
They taste very, very sweet. Sickly sweet in fact. The pink ones have a slight 'strawberry' flavour to them. The white ones have a slight 'creamy' taste to them. There is something quite artificial about them, yet I find them to be so incredibly moreish (once I start eating them, I just cannot stop). I do find them quite filling though (doesn't stop me eating them though!)
I like to suck on them, although sometimes the temptation if far too tempting, and I end up chewing them. Although if you don't chew on them, they do eventually melt away which is nice.
Considering Haribo is aimed at kids, I am surprised at how big these marshmallows are. They quite massive considering they are for kid . So I would say they are the type of things where you take a bite and then another bite rather than eat the whole thing in one go (for children).
These marshmallows are fat free....ALTHOUGH they do contain a lot of calories!! 330 calories per 100g which is a lot! So they are obviously not going to do your waist line any good! So I would only recommend these as an occasional treat. They are a great treat for the whole family as there are plenty of marshmallows to go around and adults love them just as much as kids!
I paid £1 for a bag of these from Iceland which I think is good value for money. You can also get them cheaper from places such as B&M Bargains and Home Bargains. They are really good value for money.
I love these and can't wait to buy another bag of them!
Thanks for reading!

These are lovely foamy marshmallows, that taste amazing. They are not sickly sweet, but are sweet enough and have a lovely soft coating which is a bonus. I hate the cheap marshmallows from other shops/brands that have too much icing sugar on the outside that dries them out and causes the outer layer to get a weird cracked skin that does not give a great texture in your mouth - this is definitely not the case with these sweets. There is a lovely satiny outside, but when you bite into them, they give you a lovely silky, sticky, light, gooey surprise.
They come in two colours, white and pink, but both taste the same. They are a reasonable size, larger than most other brands. The major plus to these is that they are fat free, but the down side is that they are mostly made of sugar, but with sugar being easier to burn than fat, this is better I suppose.
I bought these mainly for two things:
1) For a topping for hot chocolate. The marshmallows melted slowly giving a lovely rich, velvelty head to my hot choclate which when stirred resulted in my hot chocolate tasting better giving it a silky, not too sweet, creamy flavour.
2) For toasting. These are the king of toasting marshmallows. They are so large and spongy so stay on your fork for ages, and give a great carmelised crust whilst staying gooey and soft in the middle.
I am quite a fan or marshmallows whether eaten on their own or melted and dipped in chocolate like in the old days but normally when I had a a hankering for marshmallows it would be the Princess pink and white marshmallows in the blue bag I would buy. But today in Poundland I saw these and thought well for a £1 why not.
I have seen them in both formats, in the bag as above and in the way I got them, in a plastic tub. There is 225g in this tub. The tub is just see-through with a snap-off lid. There are 344 per 100g. I suppose it would be handy for parties or for taking to the cinema or something and the tub might be handy for storage after. Inside the marshmallows are all different shapes; cylinders, twisters and swirls and the colours used are varied including yellow, pink, green and blue. It does look aesthetically pleasing and would definitley attract children I think.
However it goes down-hill from here. All they taste of to me is huge amounts of sugar mixed with chemicals. I mean I have actually eaten sugar cubes on their own before so though it sounds odd to say it, these actually taste even sicklier than that. The taste stays in your mouth too. They pull apart in the same way normal marshamllows do but they have coated them in this powdery rubbish that totally overwhelms any other taste that exists. You can get an idea of what it tastes like by smelling it in fact. It just feels like I am eating foam or something. These are so artificial that if you did give them to a child they would probably have no teeth left by their next visit to the dentist.
They're horrible and that's from someone with a very very sweet tooth. Not recommended even at the bargain price of a £1. Stick with the Princess variety.
I really like both marshmallows and Haribo so when Haribo bought out their own brand of marshmallows called Chamallows. I have no idea why they chose this name, it seems kind of weird to me but oh well.
They come in a purple plastic packet with a clear bit in the middle so that you can see through to the pink and white marshmallows inside. Haribo is written at the top in pink and Chamallows is written at the bottom in white. On the back are the ingredients and all the necessary nutritional information. Each 175g packet costs £1.20 which is a lot more expensive than supermarkets own version but then again they are Haribo so I expected them to be expensive.
These marshmallows have a really nasty smell, sort of like chemicals, yuck. I wasn't too keen on the taste either they didn't taste very nice either, again sort of like chemicals and too sweet. I really didn't like them. The texture didn't seem to be right either they were a bit to sticky, not something I like.
Not only do they smell and taste bad but they also contain loads of sugar! I'm trying to cut back on sugar so I didn't eat to many, be careful or you could end up with rotten teeth. However on the positive side they are free from nuts, milk, Soya and gluten.
Overall a 4 out of 10 for being allergy safe.
I have always been a fan of marshmallows, and yes I do think they are one of the greatest inventions in the sweet market.
I had to find one of the best companies who make the best marshmallows so I came across Haribo chamallows.
I have to say as much as I would like to laugh at the name chamallows it's as much as I would like to frown at the name because it's rather ridiculous.
You can't really go wrong with these chamallows, once you eat one you can never stop till you are full. I always finish a whole 175g in one day, not because I am greedy (which I am not) but because they are lovely.
I don't even remember the days I started consuming these, but who cares, all I know is that they've never let me down, they've actually got better as nowadays they state that they don't contain artificial colours (they never used to state this years ago).
I've never really had any problems with Haribo as a company. All their products I have consumed all taste good and are of good quality.
These Haribo chamallows do have this annoying smell, which you could say they stink. The smell is not attractive at all to my nose. Whenever I open a pack I make sure it is far away from my nose. However, the annoying smell does not have any effects on the mouth-watering taste produced by these chamallows. Once you put one on your tongue, that softness of the chamallows will relax your mouth.
That feeling of the chamallows melting in your mouth will give a sweet juice that will make you think you are in heaven. Make sure you are sitting down whilst having these chammalows, because when you bite on one, your legs will lose power, because the delicious taste will control your mind and make you travel in the sweet world of good tasting marshmallows.
I just love the taste of these marshmallows, they get me going.
You might be wondering what are the strings attached to marshmallows that taste so good. Well with the Haribo chamallows there are lots of sugars. A 175g of Haribo chamallows have more than 500 calories which is a quarter of your requested daily intake. A 175g pack will have just fewer than 5g of proteins and hardly any salt or sodium.
The chamallows don't have any fibre (needed to break down the fats in our body) and fat (a little bit needed for the body warmth, but too much can be of damage to health).
Overall these chamallows are not healthy at all, as long as you have the time to go to the gym after consuming these, you will be fine.
___Cost and Packaging___
Of course these chamallows come in a plastic packet and the chamallows are white and pink. You can buy these chamallows from major supermarkets and local shops (that's just how popular they are).
The price of these chammalows do vary a lot depending were you buy them from. However, to give you an idea of the price, nowadays, a 175g packet cost around 80p - £1.20. If you are lucky you could find them on special offer.
However, I think the price is worth it, so don't hesitate to buy them
I would definitely recommend these chamallows to anyone who has not tried them before, because they are good quality marshmallows that would leave you satisfied. However, if I was to be your doctor, I would tell you to stay away from these because they are by far bad for your health although you do need a bit of sugar in your body.
Overall because they taste, I am going to recommend them to everyone, who want something sweet and delicious in their tummy. You can't really go wrong with these chamallows, so give them a chance.
