Finally, a candy fit for a princess is now available in Canada! With recent reports from the UK confirming that HARIBO products are a favourite of princess-to-be Kate Middleton, royalists across the country are clamouring for the gummy treats.

According to The Daily Mail, Middleton stops in to pick up favoured HARIBO brands Starmix and Tangfastics from her local shop twice a week making the low-fat treats a must have indulgence in her pre-wedding diet. Now available in retail outlets across Canada, the candies are the perfect pleasure to enjoy while watching the Royal Wedding.
