About Jelly Drops

The fun & engaging way to support hydration!

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. Now, these deliciously fruity treats are available for everyone!

They are enjoyed by people in their homes, in care homes, and other care settings.

Jelly Drops are not suitable for people with or suspected of having swallowing difficulties. If you have any concerns please consult a speech & language therapist prior to use.

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.

Following feedback from our customers, we've recently developed a new and improved recipe. New Jelly Drops are smoother, more jelly-like in texture and even tastier than before, while still having the same great benefits. They have been getting fantastic reviews from new and old customers alike!

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.

Many people with diabetes choose Jelly Drops as a sugar-free alternative to traditional sweets. Jelly Drops contain no sugar and only 14g of carbohydrates per box, but we recommend consulting with a medical professional if you have any concerns.

Even though they are made of 95% water, Jelly Drops don’t ‘burst’ 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 jelly.

Jelly Drops are available to buy online through the Jelly Drops shop only. Currently we only deliver to UK addresses, but have plans to launch Jelly Drops in the USA very soon.

Jelly Drops are made of 95% water, providing a boost in fluid intake for those with dementia who struggle with hydration.

They come in a range of bright, eye-catching colours and are presented in a uniquely designed transparent container, which help the sweets attract attention from people with dementia, who may otherwise forget about them.

Both the innovative packaging and the shape of the sweets themselves, allow them to be easily accessible, even for those who are less dexterous.

This helps encourage an enjoyable habit of healthy snacking, which many find to be easy and enjoyable.

Jelly Drops are not currently available for delivery in the United States, however we plan on launching in the US very soon. Please find out more information and sign up to be the first to know when we launch on our Jelly Drops US page.
