"Great joke! Fooled everyone on staff with this ... told them I'd prepared a special, fruity drink to start our mornings. Staff includes 3 Diabetics, so I prepared with Sugar Free Gelatin ... perfect! Even fooled my youngest son with this and he has always LOVED April Fools' Day. Will definitely try again and use an assortment of different fruit. LadyEVP"

"I made this for a work meeting I had with a few of my fellow workers. They enjoyed it. Several even made a contest to see if they could actually suck the jello through the straws. This is something I will save and make again.

"Why not use sugar free gelatin. It would reduce those carbs and make it a truly Light dessert!"
