Shark Tank Jello

Serves Makes 13 half pint jars     adjust servings


For the Jello

  • 1 (2 liter) bottle lemon lime soda, flat
  • 4 (1/4 ounce) packages unflavored gelatin
  • 2 drops blue food coloring

For the tanks

  • 26 half pint jars (with a lid) 13 for the shark tank and 13 for the jello to set up in.
  • gummy sharks (I found mine at Walmart)
  • nerds (about 5 boxes)


    For the Jello:

    1. Pour the soda into a large bowl and let it sit on the counter up to 4 hours to become flat.
    2. Once the soda is flat; pour 1 cup of the soda into a bowl; sprinkle the gelatin over the soda and let stand to soften (about 5 minutes).
    3. Pour 2 cups of soda in a small saucepan over medium heat.
    4. Heat until just before a boil.
    5. Add softened gelatin, stiffing to dissolve completely (about 2 minutes).
    6. Pour into the bowl with the remaining soda along with food coloring; stir to combine.
    7. Fill each jar up to the line.
    8. Store in refrigerator until solidified (overnight is best).

    For the Tanks:

    1. When ready, run a knife around the edges to release the seal, turn upside down on top of another jar that already has the nerds in the bottom (about 3 jars per box).
    2. Jiggle loose the jello until it starts to move; it will slowly slide down into the jar that is ready to become a shark tank.
    3. Once the jello is in place; make a slice in the jello with a sharp knife and insert the gummy shark.
    4. You may also add candy shaped fish.
