When contacted by MailOnline, a spokesperson for Haribo confirmed the truth, explaining: ‘This seems to have people a little fry-ed, but we can confirm that even though they look like flying saucers, Haribo Starmix does in fact contain tasty eggs, as well as our other popular and well-known sweet pieces that have been brought together in one bag.’
Others claimed that the sweet was definitely a UFO. One man wrote: ‘They are eggs but they represent UFO’s as do the cola bottles they are the rockets, the ‘bears’ are astronauts, it’s just about making it cute for kids’ and many people backed him up, whilst others joked about how crushed they were by the news
