  • Depends on if it's jelly or jam. There is a difference.

    Jam is a mash of fruit with pieces of fruit in it and is not as clear and spreads easier because it is more of a thick liquid than jelly.

    Jelly is... well... Jelly. It has no chunks, it's more jellied and not runny.
    It looks more like jello.

  • How are they different things?
    In America, you put "jelly" on your sandwiches, which in Australia is what we call Jam.. They're basically the same thing (different brands and recipes etc).

    Jelly is a (somewhat) solid, that you eat at dessert, probably with ice cream or cream.

  • I only say jelly. I'll only call it jam if I'm reading a specific label aloud. I don't like either, so, I've never given it much thought.

  • Well they are 2 different things. I prefer jam. Easier to spread. But if I'm referring to a PBnJ sandwich then I'll say jelly even tho I'm more than likely using jam because it sounds better.

      well, i tend to prefer jelly because it has a nice smooth texture... but my grocery store now also sells "strawberry spread" ... i have no idea why there is now a jelly, a jam and a strawberry spread.

  • They are different things!

    "Jelly" in the UK is "Jell-O, leading to them thinking that Americans eat Jell-O sandwiches.
