    Dolly mixture is a British confection, consisting of a variety of multi-coloured fondant shapes, such as cubes and cylinders, with subtle flavourings. The mixtures also include hard-coated fondants in round edged cube shapes, and sugar coated jellies. They are sold together in a mixture, in a medium-sized packet. The product is produced by various companies in different countries; the most popular brands are those produced by Trebor Bassett (now a part of the Cadbury's consortium) and Haribo.


    The name "Dolly" refers to the small size of the sweets.[citation needed]


    The Goon Show character, Bluebottle, was frequently rewarded, or able to be bribed, with a quantity of dolly mixture.
