Is jello another name for jelly, the flavoured dessert you mix with water, it has sugar and gelatine and flavour, and it sets as a clear gelatine dessert in a bowl, that you have put in the fridge? Just trying to work out our different terminology:)


@kiwigal81: yes it is the same thing, flavored jelly, which comes in many flavors. Jello-O is a brand name by Kraftfoods.
