  • Thread-topic: [Aroid-l] Iron Chef - Konnyaku- jelly cups !!

Actually three Califonia children died as a result of choking on them. The
problem being that they are quite soft and pliant and the proper size to block
the throat if inhaled whole. While their import is now prohibited in California,
they can still be found if you know where to look. (I especially like the
ones with a segment of mandarin orange in them)

These fruit jelly cups have been outlawed here California. Many children have been killed &/OR brain damaged ,from these as they lodge in the throat AND do not dissolve making them a very cruel plug that can’t be easily removed except in a hospital setting ,with that being way to late to save the child’s life

The small cups of fruit flavored jelly hold a square piece of almost flavorless konjac (or what I always assumed was the konjac part).  You can see a photo of it here:
There is also a small amount of juice in the cup, which usually squirts out at you when you peel off the foil cover.
