Princess Kate Middleton's got a Sweet Tooth

The Royal wedding is finally here!  Everyone's been talking about it and been counting down to the marriage of Prince William to Kate Middleton.  It was televised around the world and billions of people tuned in.

I think Kate's a lovely lady and will be a great Princess.  One AWESOME quality about her is that she has quite the sweet tooth!  It has been said that Kate got nervous about the big day, but she settled her nerves with sweets.

Kate's candy of choice?  Haribo Starmix and Tangfastics.  Kate buys about two packs a week.

Never heard of them?  Me neither.

Haribo Starmix is made up of gummy rings, fried eggs, hearts, bears, and cola bottles.  Haribo Tangfastics are gummies fantastically topped with sugar, some shapes including cola bottles, cherries, bears, and lizards.

But of course, we are all familiar with Haribo, which gives us our beloved gummy bears, sour peaches, gummy frogs, and sour cola bottles.  Starmix and Tangfastics are very popular in the UK, which is why Americans are unfamiliar with those products.

Anyway, since Kate's such a big candy fan, Haribo became inspired to make a new line of candy called "Heart's and Rings and Other Nice Things."  The pink bags of candy will include gummy rings, lips, cupcakes, heart throbs, and presents.  The product will be sold all over England.  Kate's sweet tooth sent Haribo's sales skyrocketing, so I'm sure it's a way to thank her for advertising their product.

I don't know about you, but Tangfastics sound absolutely delicious to me and I'd love to try some sometime because I love my sour candy!
