Jelly Babies

If only I had known babies now come in jelly/gummi form…

Ironically, as a vegetarian, I would probably choose not to eat these. Because of the gelatin. The baby-ness is perfectly ok.

    But real babies also contain gelatin.

    I thought it was vegans who didn’t eat gelatin.

    Film contains gelatin… movies are murder!

    Any Doctor Who fan knows all about Jelly Babies. And so thus, Hemant loses some geek cred.

    65.8 geek credits deducted. Ignorance of the longest running sci-fi series of all time?
    Ouch.

    Anyone from the UK will be looking on oddly. Jelly Babies have been around for a long time and we don’t think twice about them. Are they new in the US?

    They were always mentioned in Dr Who and because of that I would always look for them in America, but I could never find them anywhere. I had assumed they were a fictional candy created for the show. It’s good to know they actually exist.

    Cannibalistic infanticide is common throughout the UK, however it is frowned upon if the baby isn’t eaten in jellied form.

    These sweets are such a normal thing in the UK that it’s very odd to see that an outsider thinks that the idea of eating jelly babies is an odd one. When I think about it, they are quite a gruesome confectionary item.

    This makes me wonder what else is thought of as normal in the UK that would seem strange and repulsive to a foreigner.

    Are they new in the US? No wonder I couldent find them anywhere. I must admit that I was confused by the post at first.

    About Doctor Who: (bragging slightly) I Met David Tennant in M&S near my house. It was really cool.

    Jelly Babies aren’t widely available in the US, their ecological niche is occupied by Gummi Bears.

    As part American, I can say that I used to be able to buy these in the Blarney store chain in the states. Though, I’m not sure if that chain still exists.

    … But yeah, Jelly babies are somewhat like Swedish fish, only better tasting and not as chewy. They’ve been around for at least 20 years.
