Many of us will remember the television adverts declaring, “Kids and grown-ups love it so, the happy world of Haribo!” and now the maker of the chewy sweets has given us another reason to love it.

Haribo launched its very own bingo game just in time for the festive season. The game, Christmas Mishap Bingo, has been described as for the entire family and it has been designed to help people connect with their inner child when dealing with the inevitable frustrations surrounding Christmas, such as toppled trees, gravy stains and turkey troubles. Talking about the game, a spokesperson said:

“It may look like your standard advent calendar, but there’s a playful twist. Instead of chocolate, behind each of the 25 windows is a delicious mini bag of Haribo sweets. And, when mishap happens, just shout Bingo and open the matching window on the box and reward yourself with a minipack of Haribo.”

Best of all, the confectioner is giving everyone the chance to win the game for free. All you have to do is visit the Haribo website and submit your funniest Christmas story. If it is judged to be funny enough, then Haribo will send you a box.

If you’re not lucky enough to win with your Christmas story, you can still try your luck and play at online bingo sites from our selected list.

Advertising Campaign to Support Game’s Launch

Haribo is promoting the game with the below advert, designed to celebrate Christmas and the joy children experience when things go wrong.

The company also conducted a wide survey among the UK about Brit’s most common Christmas mishaps and it came back with the following list:

A Truly Exclusive Game

Haribo has defined a mishap as “anything that doesn’t go to plan at Christmas time, past or present”.

The game contains doors such as “Overslept on Christmas morning”, “No more fridge space”, “Broken baubles”, “Power cut”, “Left the gifts on the train”, and “Batteries not included”. Behind the doors are 24 tasty Haribo treats, including Haribo Starmix, Tangfastics, Supermix, and Giant Strawbs.

If this sounds like your type of bingo game, then you will have to hurry over to the Haribo website, as the limited edition game is not being sold through shops. The only way you can get one is by supplying your Christmas mishap story.

There is no formal cut-off date; however, there are just 972 boxes available, so you will need to be quick if you want to claim one.

The Haribo Advent Calendar

If you don’t manage to win a Haribo Christmas Mishap Bingo, you could always buy a Haribo advent calendar. It brings together some of the company’s favourite products from across the world, including Happy Cola, Goldbears, and MAOAM. You can also make a Haribo Christmas tree if you follow the instructions in the below video.
