As the name suggests, Ju-C Jelly candies are gelatinous candies packaged in the shape of the fruit-flavor they represent. For example, a grape-flavored jelly candy will be encased in a grape-shaped plastic packaging.
There are five major flavors (orange, strawberry, grape, apple, pineapple), each of them encased in their respective fruit shapes. All the five flavors are collectively sold in a big package.
How did Ju-C Jelly Candy become famous on Tik Tok?
The Ju-C Jelly candies became famous through Tik Tok. In December 2019, a famous comedian and a Tik Tok star, Jaden Sprinz, discovered the candies at a 99 cent store. Jaden is known for his long and naturally pointy canine teeth. He was browsing through the store for Christmas decoration when he stumbled upon the jelly candies.
The jelly candies’ craze began with Sprinz sampling a few of them on his Tik Tok Channel. Sprinz is famous for biting into various stuff to prove that his canines are natural and authentic.
If you look at the Ju-C Jelly candies, they have encased in plastic fruit-shaped packaging. The correct way of consuming the candy is by opening the plastic packet and slurping the jelly out of it.
However, Sprinz decided to bite into the candy without removing the casing. The moment he punctured the packet, the jelly flew out and startled him. The video became an instant hit. People all across started trying the trend.
Sprinz introduced a game called “Hit or Miss” with jelly candies to further spice up the trend. The challenge was simple. You had to bite into the jelly without removing the casing. If the casing pops and the jelly lands in your mouth, it’s a Hit. If the casing pops and the jelly sprays all around, it’s a Miss.
Two months later, when Sprinz went back to the store to pick up more jelly candy bags, they were out of stock! The trend had become viral in a short span.
