I've had a go at making some Coke and Lemonade Jelly sweets but failed miserably.

I read some older posts about doing it but couldn't get it to work. I used gelatine and 7UP free for lemonade jelly sweets and Pepsi Max for Coke jelly sweets. They didn't set properly first so i altered it and they didn't taste very coke flavoured or lemonade flavoured. In the end despite all the tweaking i used up so much coke and so much gelatine that i thought it wasn't worth the waste.

So any ideas or tips - i was hoping to not use bucket loads of gelatine as it gives it a weird artificial chemically taste.

I haven't looked at the original recipe for these but I assume they're not meant to be fizzy sweets? If so, you might try putting your coke or lemonade in a pan and simmering it for a while to reduce it and get rid of some of the water before you add the gelatine - that should intensify the flavour. Good luck! :)

It was purely so it would make coke or lemonade flavour jelly sweets that are syn free. A lot of fuss for a little gain i reckon

Adding a bit of citric acid (powder/crystals) would certainly help with adding zing to these sweets - I think you can buy it in supermarkets, it's usually used in baking and winemaking.

Did you get your silicone ice cube trays yet?

Not really done anything else with all of these ideas yet. Not wanting to add citric acid and more sweetner and that - the coke/lemonade would have enough in i'm a bit iffy with sweetner
