Have you ever eaten Jello, I mean you must have, "There's always room for Jello" they used to say. Well if you love jello then you might like this treat too. I only say might due to the fact that there's something really strange about this thing. That being that it taste, act, and pretty much is exacly the same thing as Jello but it doesn't require any refrideration. That scares me a litte, not in the good way either, not that there is a good way to be afraid when it comes to eating slimy foods with bits of fruit at the bottom.

This slimy treat went down pretty well, it was a little juicy and left a wet sticky mess on my pant leg... I wasn't impressed. The texture wasn't bad, particularly if you don't mind Jello (see first paragraph). The flavour was really nice, I love mandarine oranges, particularly the ones in the can, and this treat hit that flavour right on the head. The nice little treat of an actual piece of mandarine orange (from a can I imagine) was also a nice touch.

If you've never eaten a jelly like treat like these before my one peice of advice is this, chew.
