today i learned – sun 11th nov 2018

as it’s remembrance sunday 🙌🏻 i thought that we should have a ww1 based fact 😊

#tdil jelly babies were invented to celebrate the end of ww1 😱

back when they were invented by george bassett & co in 1918, they were actually called “peace babies” 😁

they were made all the way up to ww2, until a shortage in supplies meant that production had to be stopped 😢

after the war, however, production started again but the name was changed to “jelly babies” 😊

from what i can find, they’ve always been the same tasty snack that we get today … they just had a different name 🤷🏻‍♂️

that was pretty short today 🙈 i guess all that’s left is for me to say that i’m super thankful and grateful for all of those brave soldiers that went to war to give us the lives that we know today 🙌🏻

i’m also massively grateful for all of the brave souls that go to war these days for us … don’t know what we’d do without you. Thank you! ♥️

peace y’all ♥️ #tdil
