This has been the year of the slime. And, now, Jell-O is taking slime to the next level by making it edible! Yep, that’s ooey, gooey, droppy, floppy, sticky, icky slime that you can actually eat.
This isn’t the first time that edible slime has made waves on the internet, but those previous versions were homemade and required lots of parent preparation and cleanup. No, thanks. Holidays are busy enough without worrying about cleaning up slime from off the kitchen counter and your favorite nonstick pot.
That’s why we are so happy that the culinary geniuses at Jell-O have created a gelatin slime which comes in two delicious-sounding flavors: Unicorn Slime (strawberry-flavored) and Monster Slime (lime-flavored).
Despite their wacky appearances, they are 100-percent edible and the company claims its slime will easily wash off of skin or clothing with just soap and water. Plus, it’s easy to make.
All you have to do is put 3 scoops of the slime mixture into a bowl, add a scoop of warm water and stir it for 30 seconds. Then add a tablespoon of warm water … and dunk your hands in and start playing! When you’re done, you can eat the Jell-O slime, or lick it off your fingers as you go.
If you want to try Jell-O Play Slime, you can preorder it right now on Amazon. It doesn’t officially come out until Dec. 1, but you might want to move fast if you don’t want to worry about it selling out. This would definitely make an awesome stocking stuffer or Hanukkah gift!
One jar costs $9.99 on Amazon, and there is enough in each can for two sessions of play. (Or should we say two servings of play?)
For people who want to play with their food even more, this slime is just one of the exciting new items from the new Jell-O Play line. The new collection boasts kits that help kids build edible toys, including Jell-O Mud, Jell-O edible stickers, Jell-O Jigglers and Jell-O Play build-and-eat kits.
“Jell-O Play is a toy you can eat,” said Katy Marshall, marketing and sales lead at Kraft Heinz, in a press release about the new brand. “There are no rules to what you can make when you let your creativity out of your head, onto your plate and into your mouth.”
