Rated 1 out of 5 by from This recipe was terrible! This recipe was terrible! It looked so cute, so I decided to make it as an alternative dessert at my Memorial Day BBQ for those that are gluten free. I could not get the strawberries to stay at the bottom of the cup as they floated towards the top. However, my biggest complaint was the gummy fish. They got all soggy and weird tasting. Everyone was grossed out. I don't know why the jello destroyed the fish, but I won't be making this again for sure! I'd suggest trying another recipe.

It was messy and the kids didn't even like it. They said that the gummy fish were slime and the jello tasted nasty with all of that stuff in it. I thought the cups would look cute but all you could really see was the blue jello. You all must have had a really good photographer to get that good of a pic of the cup. The real thing didn't look anything like the pic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent idea! Excellent idea!!!! I teach an afterschool cooking class to kids. They loved the idea of it, however the fruit floated to the top and the fish sank to the bottom. Next time I will try just barely covering the bottom with jello, adding fruit, refridgerate, and then proceeding to add more later when adding the fish. Also, may want to use slightly more water than required. Hard to see through the dark blue color to the fish.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I expanded this recipe into an aquarium of fish. I expanded this recipe into an aquarium of fish. The Swedish fish began to disintegrate and built up a gray slime over a candy fish skeleton. In addition, the fish interacted with the Jell-O, preventing a full gel set. It scored major cool points with kids, but the fish texture was gritty and did not come out like I expected. And the color was darker then what was pictured on the website.

Carp are an important symbol of this day and carp kites are flown outside families' homes, one for each male in the house. Children make crafts of carp in schools and I thought this would be different and perfect to help celebrate the occasion. Mahalo! Thanks!

Big hit with the kids, they didn't mind that the strawberries wouldn't stay on the bottom. Next time I will try chilling longer with just the berries and a bit of jello in there to see if that works as others suggested. Also the jello is a bit too dark to really "see" the fish unless you hold them into the light.
