Two things that are sure to conjure up visions of your childhood are Jelly Babies and Vimto. One is a refreshing drink for after school, while the other is a sugar-coated treat you probably scoffed on long car journeys.
Now, Poundland is bringing a real taste of the ’90s back to our lives by selling Vimto Jelly Babies. Coming from Poundland, you can imagine they aren’t going to cost an arm and a leg either.
Available NOW in Poundland stores for just £1 a bag, Vimto Jelly Babies have that classic flavour of blackcurrant, raspberry, and grape in Jelly Baby form. Be warned though, Vimto Jelly Babies are only expected to be a limited run – get them before they grow up!
It didn’t take long for news of Vimto Jelly Babies to start spreading, with those lucky few who’ve picked up a pack sharing their rave reviews online.
Royal babies are old news. Jelly babies are where it's at: https://t.co/mQ9bxS3JzF— Michael Moran (@TheMichaelMoran) May 8, 2019
I just finished a packet of Vimto jelly babies. They were right fine 😊— MrsKrabapple (@MrsKrabapple) May 6, 2019
Can’t believe Vimto flavoured jelly babies exist 😭😭 pic.twitter.com/tTtlTNDk5v— Adam Goldfine (@adamg411) May 5, 2019
Sadly, the beef gelatin used in Vimto Jelly Babies means they’re not suitable for vegetarians. Well, at least veggies can still eat Percy Pigs.
Spotted a new (to me) @vimto item the other day💜💜💜— HippieMark (@hippiemark) May 5, 2019
And then, ultimate sadness.
Vimto jelly babies have beef gelatin in them.
Why, damn you why?
This isn’t the first time Vimto has branched out into confectionery. By now, most of you will have seen those chewy Vimto bonbons, but did you know they make up only a small part of the company’s range of sweets? Elsewhere, you can wrap your jaws around sweet n sour chewy sweets, Vimto chew bars, and Vimto jelly beans.
As we all celebrate the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s own bouncing bundle of joy, maybe we should forget the Royal baby for a moment? Why not get yourself some Vimto Jelly Babies instead?
