    You could survive, but it wouldn't be exactly healthy.

    I just wondered, as my company sells 125grm pots of jelly for 57p :surprised
    and thought there was no food value in it.

    Arg! You know people are going to do that if you tell them not too.

    Disgusting! I don't think liquid cat is my cup of tea really.

    You could probably get away without drinking, but I doubt you'd live long on just water sugar gelatine and colouring.

    Jam would be fruit, pectin and sugar, perhaps a bit of acid, as from lemon.

    I think is is all the shapes that jelly/jello can be made in that makes it interesting, i am sure mom had a cat shaped one, or was it a rabbit.

    Wolly, you must come to the U.S. and visit the Jello Museum:
    http://www.jellomuseum.com/

    So America's Most Famous Dessert is really English Jelly?
    Spanking rigs? :confused: Oh, wait, I think Moonbear has one of those.:biggrin:

    Jell with the public? har har har :rofl: *slaps knee*
    So this all started as a cough remedy and laxative tea? :yuck:

    is the jeans i wore yesterday, they got smothered in jelly (raspberry) and
    now they stand in the out house looking all ghosty, last time it was fondant
