Lychee Everydaze Essential C’s Konjac Jelly (with collagen and vitamin c)- Made in Korea
Why We Love It
My family snacks pretty frequently, especially my kids, ages 7, 9 and 10. This jelly reminds me of the jelly sticks I used to get for one of my brothers (who is 15 years younger than me) at the Asian supermarkets, except this version doesn’t contain table sugar, it is made with natural sweetener, Erythritol. You can read more about it below. We do find ourselves a little fuller eating this as a snack, as opposed to having chips or regular jello. We like how it’s only 10 calories, compared to other sweet snacks (cookies, ice cream, candy, etc).
I will say I agree with their instructions, to break apart the jelly in the pouch before squeezing or sucking the jelly from the pouch to prevent choking. Personally, my family didn’t have any problem eating it and the isn’t exactly a age recommended to eat this, I wouldn’t personally give it to anyone younger than 7 (you can try it for yourself first, before deciding if you think your child can eat the jelly safely).
My kids do notice an aftertaste (probably from the erythritol sweetener), but they still enjoy and choose to have this for their snack.
