I was recently given a giant jelly baby by a friend and last night, I attempted to eat him. I have long had an eye on these things, wondering what they’re like – I’m just a big kid at heart – so I was really excited to get one.
But there was one major question – HOW do you eat them?? Would it be a case of just picking him up and biting, or would a knife be required? I can tell you, no knife was getting through that baby and as I reached for the kitchen scissors, I quietly muttered ‘sorry’ as I cut through his leg.
I was shocked by the texture. Expecting a literal giant jelly baby, he – should I be referring to it as a he?! – was more like a giant block of gelatine, the kind you buy to make a jelly! And the flavour was pretty much the same too, so you don’t want to be over indulging in one sitting.
Good fun and I shall look forward to many more sugar rushes from him!
I’m not sure this picture shows just how big this guy is – he’s bigger than a dinner plate!
