Major German supermarkets are pulling the country’s famous Haribo products from their shelves, amid a reported dispute over escalating prices for the beloved gummy bears. Deutsche Welle reports that Haribo wanted to raise the price of a 360 gram package of bears from €1.19 to €1.29 (or about N$ 25), with the Bonn-based company citing the higher prices for the raw ingredients needed to produce its candy brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. Discount supermarket chain Lidl responded to the proposed price hike by pulling Haribo products from its shelves in August, and now Edeka, Germany’s largest supermarket chain, has followed suit. Meanwhile, competitor Aldi has responded to the gummy bear bickering by featuring Haribo products prominently in recent advertisements and offering the gummy bears at discount prices.
