Confectionery manufacturer Haribo, makers of the famous Gold Gummy Bears, recently opened its very first flagship store – in the beautiful city of Bonn in the Rhineland area of Germany.
Haribo (the acronym stands for HAns RIegel BOnn, the initials of company founder Hans Riegel) was established in 1920 and its fruit gums and liquorice products are available pretty much all over the world. The company has subsidiaries in 22 countries and produces some 100 million gold bears per day (!).
And now they have finally opened a proper flagship store – long overdue, I think – right in Bonn’s city centre. As a major Haribo fan I was delighted to see the shop when I was home for Christmas last week. It retails Haribo’s entire German product portfolio as well as Haribo merchandise and limited editions products. Absolutely worth a visit!
