Alpenliebe Juicyfills Orange & Mango Flavour – A Candylicious Review
Alpenliebe Juicyfills are centre-filled candies that the brand claims are rich in vitamin C. We tried mango and orange, can you guess our favorite?
With a caramel filling or coffee-flavored, as kids, we had at least one candy we swore to not share. Candies are the ideal bite-sized craving killers, ones no one can truly be too old for.
Started with a caramel-flavored lollipop, Alpenliebe has been an inevitable part of every 90’s kid. Recently, they launched fruit-flavored, center-filled candies that we ordered for our Alpenliebe Juicyfills review.
Is the center-filling jelly-like? How intense is the flavor of the specified fruit in the candy?
Alpenliebe Juicyfills – Everything You Need To Know
1. Available Flavours
These fruit-flavored candies come in two flavor variants- Orange and mango.
We ordered the assorted pack that had 46 units of individually-wrapped candies.

The fruit powder content is equivalent to 3% fruit juice.
Alpenliebe Juicyfills – Our Review Factors
Candy isn’t eaten from a health/nutritional perspective. This is why this review isn’t as focused on the type of ingredients or calories. Since these are fruit-flavored candies, we’ve reviewed them more on how bold these flavors are. Sweet or sour? How do they taste?
What does the filling taste like? Is it exactly the same as the outer shell or a different flavor? If different, does it complement the outer shell? How prominent are the fruit flavors? Or do they just contribute to the visual appeal? Sweet and tart or sweet all the way through?
Candies are primarily sugar, in a melted and cooled-down form. When bit into, does the filling ooze out or does it have a jelly-like texture. Is the candy shell sticky?
Alpenliebe Juicyfills Flavours- Detailed Review
Individually wrapped in an assorted pack, Alpenliebe Juicyfills aren’t like regular candies. These have a fruit-flavored center filling. This filling isn’t something you can bite into, it has a more thick concentrate-like consistency.
More on each flavor is discussed in this section.
Before we started this review, we anticipated a candy that tasted like Alphonso mangoes. Sweet and luscious was what we hoped for.
Out of the 46 units, 19 were mango-flavored.
Usually, this is a vibrant-hued, oval-shaped candy. It has a light tinge of mangoes that have just ripened, a fresh-looking yellow. Taste-wise, the outer shell is adequately sweet, no complaints here. This shell showcases a fresh, fruity, mango-like taste. This also had an ever-so-slight tanginess. As we bit into one, the center filling has a thick syrup-like consistency.
The boiled-sugar shell definitely sticks to the teeth. But we got no complaints! The vitamin C claim is something we cannot really corroborate.
- The assorted pack is priced at Rs 50.
- It has a shelf life of 12 months.
- One pack holds 46 units.
- Main Ingredients- sugar, liquid glucose, mango fruit powder, vitamin C.
- One candy weighs approximately 3.5-4 grams.
