what are jelly drops?
Jelly Drops are award-winning sweets designed to boost hydration. They’re 95% water, sugar free and vegan with a fantastic, solid but smooth texture!
Inventor Lewis Hornby was inspired to create water sweets after his late grandma Pat, who had dementia, was struggling to hydrate. Today, these deliciously fruity treats are designed to be enjoyed by everyone!
"The texture was spot on and the flavour remained the same refreshing taste, which is fantastic. I feel VERY excited about the new product!”
When Pat, our founder Lewis’s grandma, was rushed to hospital with severe dehydration, they were told to prepare themselves for the worst. Pat, who had dementia, spent 24 hours on IV fluids in hospital before thankfully making a full recovery. Lewis was left wondering how something so small could have a potentially life-threatening impact.
Lewis then spent a month in his grandmother’s care home to try and find a solution. Consulting with doctors and speech and language therapists, he spent 18 months testing and developing the product you see today.
Jelly Drops are made with 95% water and are an engaging sweet that allows people to boost their water intake independently and with more dignity. Created with grandma Pat in mind, but loved by everyone.
Jelly Drops has gone from being the spark of an idea to a product that’s received worldwide attention and created an incredible community behind us.
Our video of Grandma Pat’s first interaction with Jelly Drops has been watched over 100 million times, Lewis has been interviewed on The BBC, Sky News as well as being featured in The Metro, on Yahoo News, the TED X stage and much more.
