To tie in with the release of The Smurfs 2 movie which hit the cinemas today, Haribo have launched a new range of Smurf jelly sweets, featuring Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Gutsy, Brainy and Grouchy. They're supposed to be in raspberry, strawberry and lemon flavours but to be perfectly honest, I couldn't really distinguish any separate flavours. They are very nice though !
We couldn't help but laugh before it's not just their hats but their whole heads that have taken the different colours so you get a very red-faced Papa Smurf, a yellow-faced Smurfette and a bunch of pale-looking white-headed other Smurfs. This led to the Madhouse Mini-testers making stories up as they ate, about Papa Smurf being embarrassed, Smurfette feeling ill after going on the ferry and the other Smurfs having seen a ghost or being scared !
On the promotional packs you’ll also see details of a ‘smurftastic’ competition to win hundreds of tasty treats and official Smurfs movie merchandise. Prizes include bags of HARIBO Smurfs, The Smurfs DVDs, The Smurf 2 magnet sets, movie posters, and PS3 video games, as well as Sony Cyber-shot digital cameras. You can get more information at www.haribo.co.uk/smurfs.
