Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use flavored agar-agar powder 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 into the jelly solution while it’s still in liquid form.

What are some good flavor combinations?

This question depends heavily on what your personal preferences are. If you’re looking for something a little fruitier, we think lemonade or fizzy citrus-flavored sodas like Sprite and 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 lemon. Alternatively, if you don’t want to add fruit at all, the same sodas go great with lime-flavored jelly.
