Explosion of jiggly flavour, in a fun, chewy package.

Everyone loves gummi bears. Everone's enjoyed biting the heads off of those little chewy bundles of joy (well, I like to bite those heads off). And for some weird reason, they still don't get caught in your teeth!
Now just imagine that with everyone else's favourite dessert: That bouncy, slurpy, refreshing, juicy... that almost, but not quite solid, stuff in a bowl that you wish you could have more of.
Now think of this:
Liquid jello injected into a giant empty cube made of that gummi-bear stuff, then refrigerated and left to jello-fy INSIDE that cube! Even better, make that gummi stuff shaped like something else, like maybe a BIG bear, or other kinds of cute, edible animals. And with all those different colours of gummi-bears, and all those flavours of jello, the combinations are endless. I think they'd make for good dinner-table bouncy balls too.

       In my youth, I briefly helped with the layout for a chemistry student magazine. Its editor-in chief poured considerable energy into creating giant gummi bears.   

       He'd melt lots of little gummi bears (they grow quite a lot as they dissolve in water - if you've never done this, put one in water now and look at the glass again tomorrow), pour that mixture into a large bear-shaped pudding form, let it set, and out popped one perfect, appealingly wobbly gigantic gummi bear.   

       Over the following week, we'd then invariably watch that wobbly shape shrivel into a hard, thin gummi bear skeleton as the water evaporated from the gummi mixture.   

       Apparently it's hard to stabilize this stuff. It did perform well as a very durable kind of hair gel, though.

       We now have giant Kit Kat bars. Why not a whole range of giant sweets ? I'm thinking of wine gums the size of saucers here .... uh , what was that noise ? Oh, yes, I know ... it was my pancreas, shrivelling up to a little greyish-black wizend thing from glucose overload ....
