Warm Up for Doctor Who with Bassetts Jelly Babies
The newest incarnation of Doctor Who begins this month starring Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor. In honor of an auspicious new season, let's celebrate by devouring the favorite snack of the Doctors of old (especially Tom Baker, the fourth Doctor), Bassetts Jelly Babies! A classic since 1864(!), the all-natural flavoring makes the Jelly Babies not only delicious but vaguely nutritious (or at least not so very unhealthy). Originally called "Unclaimed Babies" and later "Peace Babies," Jelly Babies remain the classic fruit jelly. Nice to know Dr. Who has such great taste!
