    Haha! I'm a nearly 30 year old bloke and I love sugar free jelly and cream! Have it a few times per week.

    Hehe, can something that tastes that good really be ok? And it only creates a spoons worth of washing up, too good to be true?

    Can't remember how many calories are in a pot (and I'm not going in the bin!), but its next to nothing.

    I think three a day may be a trifle too many...

    Love this thread. A celebration of jelly - wonderful. A delicious sweet treat that comes without guilt, worry, calculations or washing up. If there was an award for top foods suitable for diabetics this could well win the proze

    Oh jelly...... I told my other half I was going to get sugar free and he went in a sulk because "it's made of powder" as opposed to jelly cubes. So I lied and told him it was normal jelly once I made it and now he's none the wiser mwahahaha

    Might be an issue when I'm out of the honeymoon period and he asks why I'm eating it without a jab.....

    Yes I can't even say this properly as I laugh every time!

    Casserole also gets me going. WHAT makes a casserole different to a stew other than a funny name?!

    I can see the book now

    "Cookery FAO by Thundercat"

    I cook them all in the slow cooker anyway!

    Also - what's with the Americans calling jelly jello?
