Dolly mixture is a British confection, consisting of a variety of multi-coloured fondant shapes, such as cubes and cylinders, with subtle flavourings. The mixture consists of small soft sweets and sugar-coated jellies.
The origins of the name are unknown, but some people[who?] have speculated it originated around the time of the British Raj in India, where dal (or dahl) is a dried mixture of beans, peas, or legumes of different sizes and colours. Over time the name dhal mixture is thought to have led to the name dolly mixture.
