i'm surprised at people choking on these jelly cups,
but then i shouldn't.  i always thought the choking
hazard was from its size, not its consistency (which
is no different than regular jelly), and with young
children or pets swallowing the whole thing, cup and
all.  i'm surprised they don't just outlaw jelly

and susan, the juice squirting is all part of a big
conspiracy (like soup dumplings)...  :-)
