    Several times recently I've heard this mentioned on TV.
    Just what are they?

    It's jello. You make it the same way but instead of adding just hot water you add half water and half alcohol. Vodka works well. You then put them in one ounce paper Dixie cups to set.

    Alabama? I thought maybe you were in England and never heard of it.

    They're pretty lame (IMO of course) You actaully let them set individually in little flexible plastic or paper shot glass sized medicine cups until the jello takes, then squeeze all the jello out of the cup (you more or less drink them as they will not get as solid as pure jello due to the alcohol in them)...I dunno about them really.

    I have friends who make them by the hundreds,using different flavors.At parties,they pass them around in big bowls.they are in little plastic throw away containers.They get as hard as regular jello so you have to use your tongue to get the shot out.

    Yes - Alabama. We're not as "backwards" as some people think.

    I like them!

    You can make any flavour, and I usually dig my finger around the edge between the Jello and the cup and then you have to suck really hard (no pun intended) to get the Jello out...it's a fun and (hopefully) yummy treat!
