I wish you used a better measurement than a "pouch" of gelatin so you could use different sizes and brands of gelatin easily.
knox gelatin like that comes in 1 ounce pouches. most other brands do as well

I would dip the squares in chocolate like the fancy chocolate covered jellies you can buy in the candy stores.
I found them at my local family video movie rental place. chocolate covered gummy bears are sooooooo yummmmy.

if i remeber correctly if you reduce the water content you get firmer gummies but if anyone would like to get firmer gummies make experimental batches and reduce the juice content by say 10 ml until you like how firm they are

Is Knox gelatin like another 'normal' gelatin? It have flavour or not? its powder of sheets?
^^' Sorry for a silly question like this but I dont live on America.
Knox gelatin is an unflavored powder.Any unflavored gelatin should work each package of Knox is about 11 ml (or 3/4 tablespoon for us).Hope this helps
