Everyone had their own individual tastes, but I grew up in Birmingham, England, and now living in the States,and they only sweets comparable would be gumdrops, which are covered in sugar, or gummy bears which get sticky -- but more important...they Jelly Babies, like Rowntrees' fruit pastilles -- have a blackcurrant flavor! Americans prefer grape and strawberry, they have yet to discover the delights of the blackcurrant! So, whenever I stumble onto a website that offers ex-pats a chance to purchase Jelly Babies, Fruit Pastilles, and Ribena..I'm there! They arrived fresh,and delicious. And I'm only eating two per week, so they'll last longer. Then I'll have to re-order...Crumbs :(
