Let's talk about: Jelly Babies

There are a lot of references to Jelly Babies on Doctor Who. 
I always wondered what they were and what they tasted like. 
The last time I was at London Market they had some so I picked up a bag. 
This past week as my daughters and I were studying the United Kingdom in our summer Geography lessons, we finally tried them. 
They looked like large gummy bears, but in the shape of people (kind of), covered with a white dust. 

It is really hard to describe what these tasted like. 
They were kind of firm on the outside and more chewy on the inside but not chewy in the way that any of our American candy I can think of is chewy. The closest thing I can compare it to would be those fruit flavored candies that look like orange slices. 
The flavor was sweet but not too sweet. 
We all liked the red and orange ones best as well as the blue and purple ones least. 
My main feeling about these was that while they tasted fine they wouldn't be something I would necessarily pick up again. Not bad but not something to be really excited about either.

*Have you tried Jelly Babies?
*If so, did you like them?
