People are suggesting Haribo fried eggs are something else entirely

It's blown our minds

It's blown our minds

If you're a fan of Starmix then you know exactly what we mean when we say the words 'fried egg sweets', a delicious combination of a jelly yolk and foamy white.

But we've recenlty had a total curveball thrown our way that's made us question whether they are actually fried eggs. It's quite possibly more mind blowing than what's actually in a Kit Kat wafer, or the fact that you've been eating Toblerone wrong your whole life.

One Facebook user has suggested that because it's called 'Starmix', the so-called fried eggs could actually be UFOs.


This new information has got us like:

While the theory does seem plausible, Haribo's official website has set things straight once and for all.

It reads: 'HARIBO Starmix contains the ever popular favourite shapes such as the lemon flavoured Fried Eggs and raspberry flavoured Heart Throbs' – did anyone else have no idea the love hearts were called Heart Throbs?

'There are also the iconic Cola Bottles and strawberry, lemon and orange flavoured Bears. As well as the playful Rings in raspberry & pineapple, orange & lemon and raspberry & lemon flavours.'

Don't know about you, but we're off to buy some Haribo Starmix for the office ASAP.

SO good.
