Dear Customer Services,
I like Jelly Babies. They make me smile. They taste nice, and they don't make me feel quite so guilty as some other confections do.
However. Why are there so many orange Jelly Babies? I recently opened a bag that was probably 75% orange. Now this is just not playing fair.
I will eat the orange ones, under sufferance, but readily hold my hand up to these not being at the top of my favourites list. The plan is – eat an orange one, then have another colour (preferably pink, a rare creature) to neutralise the taste of neat orange squash, but that bag contained so few non-orange that I had to resort to Plan B, skewer the orange ones on a paperclip to form an orange Jelly Babies kebab and give it to my friend. I do not like giving away my Jelly Babies, I am very selfish with my treats.
Other stores make their own version of Jelly Babies and their orange flavour is more mandarin but, I am afraid to say, yours is toxic.
I know you are going to tell me that the bags are filled randomly but it is surprising how much randomness affects the orange ones. Or is it that they just breed faster?
I would like to buy a bag that has more than its fair share of pink random filling, but I think I stand a far better chance of winning the Lottery.
Yours, demanding more colour equality
