Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.
JELL-O EDIBLE SLIME
The one reason I like writing this strand is because I come across some really random items and today’s one is definitely one that is up there with the unusual. At the end of 2018, Jell-O announced that they were releasing a product that you may not only be able to eat but the main aim is to play with it. All slime is usually made with chemicals which means it is toxic to eat, well Jell-O wanted to combat that.
Edible Slime is available in two flavours – Monster (Lime) and Unicorn (Strawberry). The product is made edible as its made out of modified food starch with sugars. The product is available on Amazon for $10. When you open the product it comes out as a white powder and only changes colour when you add water to it.
There is a lot of mixed reviews for this product online, a majority of them are negative saying it doesn’t taste nice, it is messy and the powder gets everywhere. Even though it may not be for everyone at least it is a super product for children that if they do eat it, they wont be effected.
