Overheard in the Office:

Roomie is lost in the intertubes on her computer screen...
RX: "Ice cream jelly spiders."

Me: "Pickle rainbow motor scooter!" (Jump!)

RX: "No, this is a real thing. Which you should link to."

*long pause*

RX: "Do you want the link?"

Me: "Nah, I found it."

RX: "Wow!"

Me: "Well, when you google 'ice cream jelly spiders', it pretty much takes you right there."

Am I missing a culinary phenomenon here?

I see Ice cream, I see gelatin...I see no arachnids...

If it's in Australia, you really don't want to see the spiders; but I'm sure you could google for examples.

Let's be honest. I want things that are BAD for what is ailing me.

You know you've arrived when Google has a dedicated spider for your website. Or would that be a jelly spider? Congrats, Tam!

You'd think that "Ice cream jelly spiders" would be a winning "Google whack."

Sedarius: No dissin' here! We've both bookmarked the site, for later dessert ideas. 'Sa pity you can't buy it in the States.

The brand is now owned by US food conglomerate McCormick.

While I couldn't find it on their web-site, Simply Australian (www.simplyoz.com) out of Cincinnati might sell it.

If you can't source it but want some, hit my gmail with an address, and I'll ship a care package.
