Aeroplane Jelly
Australia Crest

Aeroplane jelly was first marketed in 1927. The company was founded by Bert Appleroth who allegedly wrote the famous advertising jingle.

In 1937 five-year-old Joy King recorded I Like Aeroplane Jelly -

I like Aeroplane Jelly, Aeroplane Jelly for me

I like it for dinner, I like it for tea

A little each day is a good recipe

The quality's high as the name will imply

And it's made from pure fruit, one more good reason why

I like Aeroplane jelly, Aeroplane Jelly for me.....ba-boom!

Editor - "my favourite is orange, to which I add a can of mandarin oranges, sans syrup, before the jelly has set".
