Back in the fifties, early sixties jelly was my favourite desert, we didn’t have it that often so when we did I hardly ate any dinner to make room for the jelly and custard.
The strange thing is that I haven’t eaten it since and what’s more, I have no interest in doing so either. None what so ever.
When shopping at my local grocer’s I see that they still sell it, both the pack where you make it yourself and finished jelly and every time I notice I wonder: “Who on earth buy that stuff”.
And this is not because I no longer eat much desert, because I do. I got a sweet tooth the size of a battleship. But jelly, no thanks.
Has anyone else of you out there noticed that some of your childhood favourites really doesn’t blow up your skirt anymore – Ted
