Pint Pots: beer-flavored gummies

Pint Pots

Ok, file this one under weird. They are gummi candies that smell and taste just like beer. They’re like gummi cola bottles, only with beer. Evidently, they are quite popular in England as all the online candy stores I found them at are based in the U.K.

The Pint Pots are non-alcoholic, so who eats these? Are kids in the U.K. eating them? Seems like a good way to get them used to the taste of beer. Are adults eating them, maybe for those times when you can’t drink a beer (like at work), but you are craving that “yummy” beer taste? I don’t get it. Anyone care to enlighten me?

They are kinda cute though with the simulated foam head on top and the word BEER across them. Below are some links to candy stores that sell Pint Pots (and you can find them on eBay too). I’d like to try some, but not enough to pay shipping from the U.K.

    There’s a candy store in Napa that makes “beer brittle” – Peanut brittle with beer in it. Ridiculoustly expensive and strange it’s not wine brittle coming from Napa. From what I hear it takes a lot of beer to make wine…

    My friends and I used to buy these as kids from penny sweet shops.

    All I can really remember is just how amazingly cheap and synthetic they tasted, which is just what a seven year old wants.

    OMG! I want to try these Beer Gummies SOOOOo bad! From Jon’s comment, I would say these have been around a long time… but not here in Oregon (or anywhere in the USA?). A curse on my location for not having the variety of weird and interesting sweets I crave!

    [...] Now, if you’re one of those stuffy, social commentators who believes Talking Boony is a Trojan Horse to encourage mindless binge drinking, I’d love to hear what you think of something that actually opens and pours the beer for you! It kinda blows “get me a VB, the crickets about to start” out of the park doesn’t it? Or how about this from Candy Addict? The problems I see are a little less socially orientated and centres around the fact that it doesn’t follow you around cold beer in tow and the squeaky little pokemon voice definately has to go.

    They don’t actually taste anything like beer really, in the same way that coffee ice cream doesn’t taste very much like coffee. They are delicious though, one of the best ‘penny sweets’ around, and even though they don’t taste of beer they have a pretty unique taste: I wish they were more popular!

    Great website by the way!

    I want to eat these! I have had beer flavored gummies from Cranberry Sweets (beer is an ingredient), but nothing that looked like these.

    The pint pots do not taste or smell like beer and are a waste of money.They are not cute because they are about the size of your little finger and are twisted and malformed.A better name for the candy would be “British teeth”

    So this isn\’t my real e-mail because I don\’t want to be junked. I just wanted to say that I\’m an AirForce Bratt so even though I\’m American, I grew up in the east part of England. As a kid, my friends and I would always go to the corner store and buy these. They are delicious. It was rumored that if you ate 50 of them, you’d be drunk (obviously not true) but we ate them because they tasted good though. So like 10 years later (and living back in the US) I’m having this craving for them but had no idea what they were called. A Google search later and thanks to this website, I have my answer. I’m gunna order some right now – they are the best gummy ever.

    RESPONSE: Just for the record, when you leave you email in a comment, I am the only one that sees it – it is not published on the site.

    I got to try some PINT POTS by ordering them off ebay and getting them shipped to me. BLAH! They tasted like BITTER dark Beer and smelled AWFUL. But that is just my opinion. The LAGER TOPS gummies were good though… kinda like a fruity light beer taste.

    Can I order them online and ship them overseas?

    I did a review of both the Pint Post and the Lager Tops when my friend mailed some over from England!

    I thought the Pint Pots were much better if you want a beer-flavored gummi candy, the Lager Tops tasted more like lemon to me. Its an interesting idea, but…..
