Yes, it is one of the few desserts that I still eat as I consider it does not have as much sugar as a cake etc.
Also it is quite versatile as can be seen here or a simpler one here.

It can be "dressed up" so is therefore versatile and probably not too many calories.

I even quite like it plain with lashings of cream on it!

I like your jelly photo, Finy!

yes a good one miro, but who would go to that bother!

Nobody these days because you can buy so many "set" jellies that look lovely. Somebody actually asked me one day what jelly was and how do you make it . .
I was pretty astonished but I suppose it's just how things are now. I wonder if the sale of jelly crystals has plummeted. . . probably.

I like jelly but haven't made it for years. My daughter is having her wisdom teeth out next week, so I will be making up for lost time with my jelly making !!!
I have not had jello like that in a while but I had a homemade panna cotta recently. It was quite good.
Yes. I make up vegetarian jelly (with agar instead of gelatine) for the kids. It's a nice cold treat for after school. I like it made with fruit juice and pieces of fruit in it (like berries). It's also easy to get down if you've been sick.
I like the texture of jelly made with agar. . . nice body to it.

LOVE the Stuff, I think many will agree it just takes you back to being a kid again!! and you can still enjoy, with Ice Cream..or custard or alone.

I remember as a child my mother making it in one of the glass molds, No Idea! how she use to get it out sooo perfect?
Apparently it helps if you oil the mold first. I use molds that have a little hatch in the top so you can give the jelly a little push if it doesn't doesn't slide out after you flip the mold over.
Oh! thanks Jennifer will try that, it then would really make me time travel, love it.

I have some glass moulds like this Jonaj. I dip them into hot water when I am ready to get my desert out. It can take a couple of dips as the glass is very thick.

Oh! o.k. will have to give that a try too :)

Don't do it with Boiling water. I cut myself badly enough to require stitches one Christmas day when I mistook one of my vintage glass bowls for a pyrex one. When I poured boiling water into it it broke and speared the top of my foot. Fortunately I wasn't burnt as well as cut.

Yes I love jelly, & I have a few packets of them in the pantry, but I haven't made 1 for years, so there probably past their use-by-date by now.

I really like jelly but I haven't had it for years

I don't mind jelly, I used to have it as a child as a treat.
I like jelly. I used to eat it and enjoy it. Three years ago I was sick and jelly was one of the only foods offered. Unfortunately trying to eat it when I had a poor appetite has put me off, but I might be ready to try it again.
I have some ice block moulds that came with a recipe using jelly crystals. The melting iceblock stays solid a little longer.
Really enjoy a flavoursome jelly. I've found buying substitute brands don't have the flavour that the Aeroplane brand does. I also enjoy the jelly slices too and so easy to make.
I like jelly in trfle and red jelly (raspberry, strawberry, port wine etc.) with cream. I don't like ice cream with my jelly and I don't eat lime, lemon or orange jellies . . . all for different reasons. Yep, I'm weird.

I am trying to remember the last time I had jelly. That would have to be years and years ago. It is not that I dislike it,, just not something I would make for dessert.
I'm not really made on sweet jelly. I love aspic over pate or any savoury things in aspic.
I do enjoy jelly, when it is made with pieces of fresh fruit through it, as this is how my mum would always make it. The other thing which she did, and which I do is to use part fruit juice and part water for the liquid element of the jelly! When I was in hospital they gave me jelly with fruit in it, and I just found it so easy to eat as well as delicius. I have a packet of jelly crystals in the pantry which I recently bought, and I may just make it up this week!
I wish I liked jelly, its so colourful and playful and wobbly.
I'm going to try more but in the past I've been turned off but perhaps that was because I was brought p on diabetic sugar free jelly
I miss jelly so bad, I haven't had it since I became a vegetarian almost 5years ago! I really need to find a jelly with pectin or agar like Jennifer mentioned.
