HARIBO celebrates National Watermelon Day with ABC7 Chicago

HARIBO of America celebrated #NationalWatermelonDay with a new treat perfect for summertime: Watermelon Gummies. The Watermelon gummi is HARIBO’s first-ever triple-layered, marshmallow-textured gummi released in the U.S. The mix of traditional and foam gummi gives each Watermelon “wedge” a soft and sweet chew.

HARIBO of America’s Head of Communications, Lauren Triffler and Fruit Sculptor, Chanse Schomber stopped by ABC7 Chicago to share the new treat. You can get HARIBO’s Watermelon gummies now at your local Walmart and Five Below stores.

At HARIBO of America, our Associates are our greatest asset. It’s their impactful work, dedication and passion for our brand that helps us continue to inspire childlike happiness around the world through our sweet treats. We took the opportunity to thank our workforce around the U.S. for all they do during our National Employee Appreciation Day celebration.
