Bassetts Jelly Babies - Berry Mix

Finally Bassetts have listened, and they now produce just Berries in one bag. My favourite has always been the Blackcurrant and Strawberry jelly babies, so this is a huge bonus for me.
I don't eat many jelly babies anymore , as we are trying to keep the sweet amount to a limit in my house, so the kids are healthy. However, a small amount is always fine.
This is a 190g bag, so it's perfect for sharing among friends. There were 28 babies in my bag, so I'll be taking them up the park to share with all the kids. The flavours include Blackcurrant, Strawberry and Raspberry.
Of course the main ingredient is sugar, so small amounts only.
My only major concern is they contain Bovine Gelatine. I'm hoping that Bassetts will soon come up with an alternative to make these a Vegetarian Sweet. It always bothers me that a sweet is not vegetarian. The good side is that they do contain Actual Real Fruit Juice! Ok, it's concentrated, but, it's still got some fruit in there somewhere.
Jelly Babies can be bought in most shops, down the sweet aisle.
