“ Brand: Bassetts / Type: Jelly „
These Are Popsicle made by the same company that do the jelly babies gummy treats that are usually shaped as jelly babies and covered in powder...
Well... my husband bought a package of these thinking that i would love them as i love jelly babies sweets
and OMG ! haha ! at first glance they look pretty normal , small cylinder shaped lolly covered in a nice colorful wrapper, once i peeled back the wrapper i gasped as it jiggled on the stick in my hand! :X
not only that, when i took of the wrapper it was all weird slimy which did not help .. i felt violated :o
i would never give this to a child lol ... it's almost like a subliminal message.
i bite into it hoping it would taste fruity and sweet with a hint of powderyness... but it failed to deliver, the texture was off putting and tasted not right...like it was more bitter then sweet i dont know i would not buy these ..it is just too perverted..it is a scary wiggly slimy lolly that taste of crappyness.
do not buy these unless you plan to bring them to a party and randomly hand them over to your older friends just to see there expression.
the utter confusion and many facial expressions they will go through in a couple of seconds will be worth the money you paid for them... but other then that stay away!
I tried these lollies out last summer and I really love them.
They are so much fun, I can't remember how much they cost, but they weren't expensive and you get 8 individual lollies in each box.
There are a few flavours and they taste the same as the flavours of actual Jelly babies.
The great thing about these lollies is that they do actually wobble. I have no idea how they work, it must be something to do with Jelly, but once you have warmed them up a bit you can wobble them around. It's quite a strange sensation when it wobbles around, but great entertainment.
The lollies taste great, and they have a gimmick, I imagine they would be great for children's parties, or just to entertain children for a couple of minutes.
They taste really good, and they are so funny. If you are like me and enjoy silly things then these are great fun. I would really recommend them.
While we were out for the day on Saturday I treated my granddaughters' to an ice cream, only to find after buying them that the two year old was in an awkward mood and didn't want one after all. Well, I certainly wasn't going to waste the Jelly Babies ice lolly I'd spent almost £1 on so decided to eat it myself.
The first thing you'll notice with these lollies is how wobbly they are, I had the pink one and I must say it looks positively rude wobbling about on the stick like some kind of bizarre phallic symbol! Where on earth do they get their ideas from - and how did this one pass the test for it being suitable for children, I can imagine the sniggers in the playground now!
I had a pink one which is strawberry flavoured and very nice it was too. It's not a natural strawberry taste but a very pleasant flavour and not overly synthetic in my opinion. I'd liken it to the flavour of strawberry drinks in that it doesn't actually have the taste of strawberries the fruit, but tastes rather like strawberry sweets. Thinking about it now I realise they taste very similar to the red Jelly Babies, honestly I can be so dim sometimes!
I like the fact that the lollies are not too sweet which is a problem for me when it comes to this kind of cold snack. The level of sweetness is perfect and the sugar tastes comes more from the strawberry flavouring than anything in my opinion.
I'm not keen on the texture at all and would much prefer a solid ice lolly than a wobbly one like this because to me they do have a rather soft and just plain strange consistency. I feel the texture of these would definitely appeal to children although the wobbliness makes them break a little easier than other ice lollies so perhaps they are not as suitable for smaller children as the appearance would lead you to believe.
If you buy a box of these Jelly Babies Wobbly Lollies (for around the same price as I paid for a single one as a matter of fact!) and the box contains eight lollies; two each of green, orange, pink and purple. The box says that the flavours are all designed to be as similar as possible to the more famous sweets, and based on this pink one that I ate I can say they've gotten this one almost spot on so I don't see why any of the others would be any different.
Now, if I can just get over such a strange sight as a floppy pink ice lolly..........
We got a packet of these recently at Lidl and opened them to have one each on the way home. My two small boys loved them though the smallest (16 months) did have a bit of trouble with it but that's fairly normal. The flavour was good and obviously had real fruit juice in it but I really struggled with the texture not because I didn't like it though, in fact it was a nice change from a normal lolly.
The problem was I had picked a pink one and the end after the first couple of sucks was sort of domed and the whole lolly sort of lend to the side a bit, combine that with a texture that isn't a million miles from soft skin and well lets just say I struggled not to have a fit of giggles I would have had a hard time explaining to small boys!
If you want a lolly with a twist and a reasonable ingredient list then you will probably like these, and they seem to be gluten free though they arn't labled as such. I did do a double take when I spotted Hydrolysed Pea Protein, I think that is a first!
They would probably be a fun thing to start a hen night off with as well particularly if you bought several boxes and only had the pink ones !
I thought id take a walk up to my local Lidl today and see what bargains they had on offer,and after a good look round i spotted Bassetts Jelly Babies wobbly lollies for only 59pence for 8 full sized lollies. This seemed like a very reasonable price and this is what prompted me to pick them up as I am often on a limited budget but still want to enjoy some of the nicer things in life.
The packaging is a bright yellow with cute little jelly babies on the front, the lollies them self are made from real fruit juice and natural colours and flavours. I could really tell that these contained real fruit juice as they just did not have that artificial taste that you get with some lollies and this is great to know as I would share something like this with my children. I also worry about filling them up with lots of additives and rubbish and for such a cheap price I was pleasantly surprised by these.
You get 2 orange,strawberry,lime and blackcurrant and each of these flavours are refreshing and delicious. The lime was a particular favourite as it had a kind of tasty twang to it that was a little bit sharp and kept me licking my lips.
Each lollie is 65 calories which is quite reasonable indeed so I wouldn't even mind eating two of these in one go so I could sample each of the lovely flavours of course.
After a long walk home with my shopping my first thought was yum,yum for a Jelly babies lolly! Upon opening the packet I noticed the lovely sweet smell coming from inside the box and as I opened the packet and took out the lolly I noticed how the actually wobbled like real jelly,which the children also thought was great, I first tasted a strawberry lollie and it tasted great and very refreshing and the flavour was yummy. I would definitely recommend these lollies as a cheap and refreshing way to cool down in this hot weather that we have been having.
Nothing beats eating a nice cold ice-lolly on a hot summers day, and in this country (England) the opportunity to do so comes around very rarely. For this reason, the decision of which ice lolly you choose must be right.
You could go for the standard favourites or, as I often do, try a new type. I do not hesitate to do so as I am easily pleased when it comes to ice-lollies... That was until I tried these Jelly Babies Wobbly Lollies.
My first problem was trying to get the thing out the plastic wrapping each individual lolly comes in. The plastic seems to stick to it and I nearly tore the lolly in half trying to get it open! Now, this is strange, the lolly actually flopped all over the place, and I thought that it might fall off the stick and in to my lap if I wasn't careful. It's a good novelty for a couple of seconds, but that soon wears off when you place the lolly in to your mouth. It has the texture of a slug that's been bathing in baby oil... mmmmm nice. This alone was enough to put me off but the taste was no better. The flavouring tasted very strong and unpleasant and got very sickening towards the end.
Overall, I would not recommend these lollies, their texture is the main thing that put me off, but also the flavour leaves a lot to be desired.
I could never be described as the world's biggest fans of ice cream and frozen desserts, but the odd occasion does occur when after my evening meal I'm looking for something sweet to munch.
I was in my local "Farmfoods" store recently, and whilst perusing the frozen desserts for an item to fit this description, I came across this box of "Bassetts' Jelly Baby Wobbly ice Lollies". I was instantly attracted to them for two reasons:
1. I love jelly babies
2. The low price - 50p for the box!
My mind made up, I scooped the box from the freezer and felt rather chuffed at my little bargain. I mean, come on... 50p for a box of 8 lollies! Can't be bad! :-D
This was a week or so ago, and last night was the first time my "dessert craving" took hold after eating my dinner, right on cue. After rummaging through my kitchen cupboards and discarding packets of biscuits and savoury treats alike, I suddenly remembered about the box of frozen wobbly treats in my freezer! Oh Joy!
Retrieving the yellow box of lollies from my freezer, I noticed that there were four different colours (and I therefore assumed four flavours too) displayed on the box, alongside several of those wobbly little babies that we all know and love. I emptied the contents of the box onto the worktop for closer examination.
The box contained 8 assorted lollies, 1 x purple, 2 x green, 3 x pink and 2 x orange. I wasn't sure about the flavours because I couldn't find anything on the box to tell me what they were. I noticed that the packaging from the lollies (also yellow) had the flavours listed on the reverse, alongside details of what each colour/flavour contained, in the way of ingredients.
This led me to ascertain that the green ones were lime flavoured, the orange were orange flavoured, the pink ones were strawberry, and the purple was blackcurrant. Feeling rather disgruntled at the fact that I hadn't received equal quantities of each lolly (blackcurrant things are my favourite and I only received one of those, sniff) I opted to try the strawberry flavour (a pink lolly) and returned the rest to the freezer.
Upon removing the lolly from the outer plastic wrapper, I noticed that the smell of strawberry was very strong, and sweet, although not unpleasant. The lolly was indeed a bit "wobbly" and when I shook the lolly stick it didn't remove itself from the lolly (thankfully) but there was a bit of definite movement from the pink lolly.
The lolly is of a similar shape to a "mini milk" lolly; it is basically just a cylinder-shape, although it is a bit bigger than a mini milk. The lolly's colour had a slightly milky-coloured look about it, although I didn't notice this with the other flavours when I had seen them earlier.
The taste was indeed very sweet, and not unpleasant at all. Although I do think it was a bit artificial it has to be said, but I always think that about frozen ice lollies, and ice cream and things, so this was to be expected.
I ate the lolly and kept the wrapper for the purposes of this review today (am I dooyoo-obsessed or what?!) so I can tell you that the lolly contained 65 calories, which I though was fantastic considering the size of the lolly and the pleasant taste. I reckon these would a decent treat if you were on a diet or watching your calorie intake.
The packaging also states that it may contain traces of nuts, so if you have any allergies, I'd avoid this just to be on the safe side. There is a warning in capital letters at the bottom of the packaging that states 'THE NATURAL COLOURS IN THIS PRODUCT MAY STAIN.'
All in all, for what I paid, I feel I got good value for money. That said I wasn't blown away by these lollies, although I seldom am with frozen desserts, as I said earlier.
I am going to award the lollies 4 stars. I am deducting one star for the unequal quantities of each flavour in my box of lollies... I mean come on, everyone loves the blackcurrant ones, don't they?!
wow these things are amazingly awesome. they woblle and it makes us laugh :) unfortunatly we did not get any red ones which sucked :( but overall they are cool and fun and yeah maybe great for kids but us 14-15 year olds love them way more. they are tasty and make people laugh.
Each lolly contains more than 25% real fruit juice, no artificial colourings or flavours and have only 65 calories per stick. Each variant emulates its confectionary counterpart with the same wobbly texture as a real Jelly Baby but with a great cool twist.
