It's probably not something you think about, or even bother to check, but in a strange plot twist to the snacks we thought we knew, the green-colored Haribo Gold-Bears are strawberry-flavored.

Think you have trust issues? Green gummy bears are strawberry flavored.... Not apple or lime, STRAWBERRY— Connor McCandlish (@CMcCandlish2) September 3, 2015
According to Thrillist, the red bears in Germany are strawberry-flavored. At least we can all trust Germany.
