Advantages: Taste great - Variety of favours
Disadvantages: Full of sugar, flavourings and colourings.
Mmm jelly babies... I love these and it's Haribo's version that I like the most. They come in a wide variety of flavours (as you can see from the picture) and truly kinder to your sweet tooth. I can't get enough of these and whenever I see these in my local newsagents I have to pick bag or two up. They seem to be of a much higher quality and I believe they taste better :D.
The only problem with them is the health thing. Yeah, they're not healthy, and if you look at the ingredients you'll soon see why. This fruity confectionary is filled with flavourings, colourings and glazing agents (beeswax). There's also a whole lot of glucose syrup in there - I guess that's why I like them so much. It's important you bear this in mind though as too many won't do you any good by the looks of it.
I recommend these to you in moderation. I love them, but have cut down lately as I've began to realise the ingredients used aren't exactly healthy. I prefer these to the rival Bassetts jelly babies due to the sweetness but you may disagree. It's best you try both before buying in bulk!
Summary: Try Haribo and Bassetts, just for comparison ;) But watchout for those artificial flavourings!
