The Gallery: Guilty Pleasures

This weeks theme for The Gallery is Guilty Pleasures. When I saw it, I instantly knew what the subject of mine would be. You see I am addicted to jellies, especially those of the sour fizzy variety. I just love them and eat far too many. The amazing thing is I went totally off them when I was pregnant with Ben, even the sight or smell of them back then was enough to make me feel sick. Once he was born however my love of the brightly coloured sugary treats was well and truly rekindled. I have some dislikes though - I hate green pastilles, purple jelly beans and I can't stand jelly babies.

The great thing about this theme was it gave me the perfect excuse to visit my favourite sweet shop Mr Simms and indulge in lots of my favourites all in the quest for a perfect picture (thank you Tara for the excuse). So here you are, feast your eyes on my guilty brown bag full of pleasure - I already have and they are gone.

Haha, I was the opposite - I became addicted to sweets when I was pregnant  especially the sour jelly ones but now I can't eat them! x

I love the sour jelly ones - yummy! It was mad when I was pregnant alright - I couldn't get enough pears and apples :) x

Mummy's Space said...

Oooh I loved woolworths pick and mix especially the sour cherries... x

Mari said...

Brilliant! At least you remembered to take a photo before devouring them! 

Mummy's Space said...

Lol Absolutely. It took all my will power not to 'try' them before I got home and took a picture ;)

Kirstin said...

you can keep the fizzy ones, but those unfizzy cherries I could happily eat a bag full of just them.

Mummy's Space said...

Lol - they are yummy! :)

Actually Mummy said...

Oh I hate jelly babies too! But pic n mix like that! What a luscious photo that is - i will need to go out now to stop myself from raiding the kids stash!

Mummy's Space said...

I don't know what it is about jelly babies, texture or taste but they're not for me!

Mummy's Space said...

What's not to love about them :)

Mummy's Space said...

Mine too - I wish I had some left...

Mummy's Space said...

Ben would too if he got a chance. I have to hide them so he doesn't have too much sugar - for his own good of course ;)

Funky Wellies said...

Not one of my guilty pleasures, but glad Tara's theme gave you the perfect excuse! Great pic.

Multiple Mummy said...

Oh we have a Mr Simms sweet shop and that is my hubby's guilty pleasure! I am all for the chocolate myself! x

Oh good at last a guilty pleasure I don't like to indulge in. Don't get jellies myself - the only ones I can stand are the ones with fluffy white stuff on it. Its great as at least there's one treat I can buy the kids I don't want to finish off myself!
