I know they say jelly babies are good for energy during a race but downing a large sized bag purely cos they taste so amazing surely must be bad as they are not exactly calorie free!

Any reassurance please!

Yes, Muffin. If YOU eat lots and lots of jelly babies, they are clearly not fattening and we might all benefit from eating more of them.

Muffin, they are completely fat free.

I think the story I read was that they were created after WWI when food shortages forced people to get inventive. Nobody could think of a use for the Gelatin from bones until these little beauties popped up.


Ta BB - got it now.

Giant Smarties are much better, anyway.

(Cougie - it will never QUITE be gone. Believe me. I know.)

Nope. Jelly babies rule. And since they contain pork gelatin veggies mustn't eat them, so there's more left for the rest of us.

Thanks for the reassurance - they definitely are the best.

Jelly Babies, Wine Gums and Joosters got to have my fix of one of them every day.

Not sure thats healthy though.
