Allen’s Lollies have discontinued one of our childhood favourites and we are shattered.

The company, owned by Nestle, have stopped producing Marella Jubes earlier this year.

A Nestle spokesperson confirmed to Yahoo7 News production had ceased in June.

Fans of the multi-flavoured lollies took to social media to reveal their devastation over the decision.

Allen’s Lollies responded saying, “We’re just as disappointed as you are to see them go but over time demand has decreased and we’ve had to make way for new ideas and products,” a spokesperson said online.

“We’re sorry to disappoint you and appreciate your support over the years.”

Noooo! Please say it isn’t so.

Jubes hold dear memories for me.

Weekend sleepovers at my grandma’s house always seemed to include the good old jubes and lemonade cordial.

She loved jubes! There was often a packet on her bedside table.

Feeling very nostalgic to think they are now a thing of the past.

Are you a jube lover?

  • I guess it is lack of demand.

  • I’ve heard of Jubes and would eat them if offered but it wasn’t something that I really remember seeing sold by Allens or any other in particular.

  • I love Marella Jubes but don’t actually recall seeing them in the Allens range. I do love them though.

  • One of the girls I worked with used to stretch the snakes to see how long they got before they broke. We decided to have a competition during our morning tea break one day. She’d had too much experience so we all lost out to her

  • My husband used to love these. Every time I went shopping had to buy at least 2 packets. No wonder it was getting harder to find them on the shelves. Decline in favouritism wouldn’t have helped when a lot of shops weren’t supplying them.
