Commonly Asked Questions

Can I use flavored agar-agar in this recipe?

Of course! This recipe uses plain agar-agar powder but go ahead and use your favorite flavor in the mix. Just make sure to use a more neutral-flavored soda so the flavors don’t clash.

What can I add to the jelly?

You can add just about anything to this recipe. From fruits to candy, the choices are almost endless. Simply pop them in before the jelly solution is still in liquid form.

What are some good flavor combinations?

This question depends heavily on what your personal preferences are. However, we think lemonade or fizzy lemon-flavored soda like Sprite or 7-up go very well with sweeter fruits like blueberries or raspberries. The sweetness of the berries goes very well with the brightness of the lemo. Alternatively, if you don’t want to add fruit at all, the same sodas go great with lime-flavored jello.
