Connecting through Frankfurt airport I did not discover a store filled with caviar (like in Zurich airport) but I did discover something much handier for airplane travel and bad-movie watching for 8 hours–ginger-lemon gummies! The man at the sales counter who spoke only German pointed to the pack and said “spicy” just to warn me of what I was getting into, but I smiled and hugged the pack to my chest to show my delight. Only then could he smile back and wish me a “happy trip”.
Now, first off, you should know I love gummi candy. And I think this Haribo brand rocks. Especially their mango gummies which I discovered only a month ago in Toronto. Their simulated mango flavour is divine.
So I could only be more pleased to have these ginger ones be also labelled “wellness gums” as you see on the package. Who needs Buckley’s for a cough and cold? Or even Cold FX?
I also love that they have real ginger root on the pack. Makes it seem kind of local and artisanal, no? Farmer’s market-ish almost.
Dappled in sunlight it’s almost like I picked them fresh from a tree.
I hope one day you all get out to Frankfurt airport and get yourselves some of these. For now, since it is my birthday I have been eating them since 7am.
Now excuse me while I spend the rest n my day on-line at the Haribo Fun-Planet. First stop: Sour S’ghetti Station.
