How disappointing.

I don't like the yellow ones much either.

Complain to the manufacturers and they will send you 10,000 more packets.

<fingers crossed emoticon>

No, you are not! Send them back (if you can cope with not eating them) and ask for quality and variety testing to be more stringent.
You'll possibly be offered a lot more jelly babies than you had to start with!
My son would go spare if there were no red or black ones!!

My DD would have been very happy - she loves the yellow ones.

I would send them straight back and say you cannot buy another packet unless you have reassurances of no more serious errors such as this, and that you want to be compensated in some manner - ie girlandboy's plan of lots more packets. As long as they are not all yellow either!

YANBU. Its is wrong.

LOL at morningpaper

That would be a complete travesty for me, I live for the black, red and pink ones, orange at a push...yellow????

At least it wasn't almost completely made up of the green ones though wink

Lizzylou Wed 03-Jun-09 21:32:14

Gah, at my slow typing grin

Suralan, blame him

I wish they sold jelly babies in packets of single colours. I only like the green and yellow ones. One of the worst feelings in the world is to open the packet and find that they are nearly all red and black - barf.

fishie Wed 03-Jun-09 21:33:06

do they taste different according to colour? do smarties? (i do not like sweeties)

wrinklytum Wed 03-Jun-09 21:33:25

No black ones?They are my favourite.I would be gutted.

morningpaper Wed 03-Jun-09 21:35:11

janetite you FREAK

red and black are the best

SparklyGothKat Wed 03-Jun-09 21:35:51

I like orange, and red ones.. complain and they will send you 1,000,000,000 jellybabies

knickers0nmahead Wed 03-Jun-09 21:35:53

Ring or email them. Seriously, they will send you a voucher for some more! Yellow are yucky, but i still eat them!

lambanana Wed 03-Jun-09 21:36:36

I was the same when sports mixture substituted black liquorice ones for yacky purple blackcurrant ones!

A confectionery travesty!

Sounds marvellous. Was the other one green? If so, send it over in my direction. You can have my red ones.

janeite Wed 03-Jun-09 21:38:15

Moondog - maybe we could set up some sort of jelly baby exchange system?

janeite Wed 03-Jun-09 21:39:08

ooh ooh I had a solid chocolate KitKat once too. I was 17 and at a cricket match and it actually made cricket exciting for the first and only time for me.

Thunderduck Wed 03-Jun-09 21:39:32

Blackcurrant Sports Mixture are great. Far superior to the nasty liquorice.

Alibabaandthe40nappies Wed 03-Jun-09 21:41:00

shineon - that happened to me quite recently. I was gutted as I really like kitkat

That is awful about the jelly babies - I might have actually cried.

Paolosgirl Wed 03-Jun-09 21:41:18

Noooooo - green ones are the worst. Black are best, then red, then yellow, then orange then green. EVERYONE knows that!

Def. complain - it's a breach of your human rights, I'm sure of it.
