I participated in this campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Haribo. I received product samples, and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
How many of y'all remember watching the Smurfs when you were growing up? More than likely, if you were a kid during the 80's, you remember the show quite well. Back then, we waited all week for cartoons because they were only on on Saturday mornings - How many of y'all remember those days?! There was something so intriguing about those little blue people, wasn't there? Who was your favorite Smurf? Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Vanity, Grouchy .... maybe you liked Gargamel and Azrael? Papa Smurf was probably my favorite!
You can take a trip down memory lane - or even share the Smurfs with your kids! Did you know that Smurfs 2 is in theaters right now? It came out on July 31st. If you're interested in seeing the movie, be sure to look for a theater near you! You can see the trailer for the Smurfs 2 movie above. I would love to go see it in the theaters, but with 2 little ones, we'll wait for it to come out on DVD! If you have seen the movie, I would love to hear your feedback! :)
Speaking of Smurfs and movies ..... Have you ever heard of Haribo? They are the world's largest maker of gummi, licorice and marshmallow candy. Y'all know movies and candy go together, right?! Of course, you have to have popcorn and a soda, too! ;) In preparation of the highly anticipated Smurfs 2, Haribo is debuting Smurfs gummi candy in stores nationwide. They're a strawberry and raspberry flavored candy shaped like Smurfs - including Papa Smurf and Smurfette! I had no idea that they are also gluten and fat-free!
My kiddos loved guessing the characters as they ate the candy. Having 4 boys, they like to bite the heads off first! Tell me that *is* a boy thing. LOL. They all loved the fruity flavor too, of course!
If you are planning to see Smurfs 2 and want some Smurf candy to snack on or you just want to try the gummi candy without the movie - you can find them nationwide at the suggested retail price of $1.09-$1.69. You can find a store near you HERE.
