Whatever happened to Fruit Jellies?

Back in the 1960s, New Berry Fruits made in Bedford by Meltis were a popular sweet treat, along with others like Clarnico's Real Fruit Jellies and Terry's York Fruits. Since then, as the price difference between sugar and chocolate narrowed, the popularity of jellies declined and have now become hard to find on supermarket shelves.

The good news is that York Fruits (as can be seen here - but no longer made by Terry's) are still available, while New Berry Fruits with the liquid centres can be found (from my experience) fruit jelly candy manufacturers.
