Chicos (candy)

Chicos are a gelatinous sugar candy, similar to Jelly Babies, but rather than being fruit flavoured and in a variety of colours, they are all dark brown and are flavoured with cocoa resulting in a unique chocolate flavour. They are made by the Nestlé Corporation and marketed under their Australian brand Allen's Lollies. The word "chicos" in Spanish translates to the English word "children".[1]

Due to the image of a baby in the same colour as the candy featured on the front of the packaging, Chicos are sometimes known as "Chico Babies". However, they have never been branded, or promoted as such.

Chicos are Australian made and contain no artificial colours.
