One of the cool parts of my job at RadioShack is our partnership with Instructables and that bunch. They have how-to’s that show you how to make really fun stuff, including Glow Jello. Unfortunately, this doesn’t actually glow in the dark (cool as that would be), but it does, reportedly, glow under a black light, which is just as cool.
The key ingredient, apparently, is Indian tonic water, which contains quinine. The ingredients are:
- 150 ml gin
- 350 ml Indian tonic water (containing quinine)
- A splash of rose water (optional)
- 5 leaves of gelatine
