The following song is known by most Australians as it has been used in advertising since 1938 and can be found on many children's music CDs. The song is accompanied by a logo of an aeroplane named Bertie who is recognisable to most Australians.
Aeroplane jelly was first marketed in 1927. The company was founded by Bert Appleroth who allegedly wrote the famous advertising jingle. In 1937 (or '38) 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,
It's made from pure fruit, one more good reason why
I like Aeroplane Jelly, Aeroplane Jelly for me... ba-boom!
