Rowntrees Jungilees

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

The advert was probably Alan Randall doing his seventies copy of of George Formby. I can only remember "Rowntrees Jungilees are new and nice to eat" from the adverts on the box. They came in a card-type box and my mum only bought them once if memory serves me correctly. Kinda like jellybabies in animal shapes then?

    Rowntrees Junglies are new and nice to eat With Tortoises and elephants they're fruit flavoured jelly sweets. Gobble up a lion, or grab yourself a bear, Lots of jelly animals for everyone to share, Rowntrees Junglies are new and lots of fun.

    'Jolly jelly junglies are new and lots of fun....' I can still hear the man singing it now! (Is it on YouTube??). The sweets were pretty boring - just jelly animals, but funny how the advert lives on in my mind..
