probably.  konnyaku is not strictly a japanese
product, and these cups of jelly with fruit are sold
in chinese markets, sometimes with a small square of
fruit jelly in the middle.  it's just like fruit
jelly/gelatin in taste and consistency.

as i said, konnyaku noodles are served in soup at a
restaurant here in nyc, but they are really cute
because they are made as transparent bundles of tied
noodles, knotted.

oh yeah, if you are into japanese cuisine, there's
nothing like warm oden stew in the winter...


btw, what's a bushiban?
