"They have changed her life"
- Mrs J Powis
What Are Jelly Drops?
Jelly Drops are award-winning sweets designed to boost hydration. They’re 95% water, sugar free and vegan with added electrolytes.
Inventor Lewis Hornby was inspired to create water sweets after his grandma Pat, who had dementia, was struggling to hydrate.
With a fantastic solid, but smooth, texture - these sweets do not have a liquid centre - encouraging independent hydration for all, through a delicious snack.
(No Laxative Effect)

Designed for Dementia, Loved by All
Tackling a major dementia struggle
From the inability to hold cups to not equating thirst with drinking, it is often hard to ensure loved-ones do not become dehydrated.
Improving quality of life
Our innovative solution makes boosting water intake easy & enjoyable. Saving carers’ time & giving people with dementia an irresistible treat.
Helping many others
Jelly Drops are not just for dementia, being well-loved by a wide range of people who struggle with hydration or just want a healthy snack.
When Pat, our founder Lewis’s grandma, was rushed to hospital with severe dehydration, he was told to prepare for the worst. Pat, who had dementia, thankfully made a full recovery, but Lewis was left wondering how something so small could have a potentially life-threatening impact.
Lewis 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.
Since launching we’ve received over 15 awards, made over 1,000,000 drops and heard hundreds of stories from our amazing community about how Jelly Drops have changed people’s lives.
Grandma Pat's story has touched millions around the world, including being featured on the BBC, Sky News and the Ted X stage.
In 2021, we’re pleased to be able to help even more people who struggle with hydration, by bringing Jelly Drops to the USA.

Frequently Asked Questions
Jelly Drops have many properties that are perfect for those looking for a healthy snack. Not only do they contain 95% water and added electrolytes, helping to boost fluid intake, but they are also sugar-free, contain no artificial colours and are vegan. A delicious snack, many of our customers find them a perfect sugar-free alternative to traditional sweets.
Even though they are made of 95% water, Jelly Drops don’t ‘burst’ or have a liquid centre as you may expect. We’ve specifically made them with a solid texture, but one that is still super easy to chew, unlike other sweets such as jelly beans or wine gums. Many people describe them as being a similar texture to traditional trifle jelly.
Currently, we only recommend Jelly Drops to people without swallowing difficulties. If you have swallowing difficulties, please consult a Speech and Language Therapist prior to use.
Jelly Drops are made of 95% water, meaning that each tray contains 300ml water. Many people find this the perfect way to increase fluid intake throughout the day, without relying on drinks alone.
