Tonight I made myself a PB&J with jelly instead of jam, and wondered what the J really stands for. Jam or jelly?

Very True some people get caught up with what it really means but it is really quite simple

If you're seriously asking this question I think it's safe to assume that you're wearing a helmet and elbow pads, no?

I find I like Jesus better with crackers and wine.

The problem with this question is that what the brits call jam, americans call jelly, and what the brits call jelly, the americans call jello.


Actually, Jelly over here (U.S.) is closer to jam than jello, but without seeds that are present in jam. Jello is something else entirely.

what's the difference between jam and jelly? and if "jelly" is really "jello" in UK english, than that's seriously gross. who puts jello on their PB&J?

its jam you silly americans

jelly is the crap that you lot call "jello" and jello just sounds retarded.

Jelly is a different way of making fruit preserves you prat. Jelly uses the fruit juice in a pectin medium while jam has the flesh of the fruit in it.

I highly doubt that. Here in the US, jello is a gelatin dessert typically served in cubes and colored to match its flavor, which is almost always that of a fruit.
If you think anyone could be mistaken about whether or not that's what they're putting in their sandwiches, I think you're calling the wrong people silly.

It's not a huge argument. I'm not denying that we may have jams and jellies switched up. I know there are loads of screwy switch-ups between British English and American English. All I'm saying is that I don't think the jello you have in mind really is what we call jello over here. We have jam, jelly, AND jello. I just don't see how fruit flavored cubes of gelatin come into the equation at all.
