Looking for great gift ideas, one of Mr- Brims top ten is fruit jellies. These delicious fruit shaped soft jellies are covered in sugar and taste fantastic. A box of these make a delicious gift idea for men and women. Taverners proper Fruit jellies are available in a 3kg box which makes a perfect gift ( and easier to wrap!)
Fruit jellies are only made with natural ingredients and flavourings so won’t have you bouncing off the walls which of course means you can eat more of them, the fact they are fruit shaped and fruity tasting means I am sure you can use them as one of your 5 a day!! ( don’t quote me on this I tend to make my own rules up when it comes to sweets!) They come in a variety of tasty flavours which include orange, lemon, lime, raspberry and blackberry. You know you are buying quality sweets when you buy from Taverners as they are made in the Traditional way.
FRUIT JELLIES HISTORY
Taverners have been producing sweets like Fruit Jellies in the Traditional way for many years, and are now owned by Tangerine who in 2005 acquired 3 sites, Liverpool, Blackpool and Poole in Dorset. These 3 sites manufactured boiled sweets, marshmallows, toffees and jellies. Taverners have a long history of manufacturing our English favourite sweets and have come a long way since hand dipping Brazil nuts in the 1920s.
Coming from Dorset England I remember the delicious smells and fruit perfumed smoke coming from the factory in Poole, back then the factory was known as Parrs. Always wondering what magnificent things they were making.
