comment How do you make Welch's fruit snacks?
Experiment 4 had great texture, but the coconut oil showed up in little bits and tasted horrible. Experiment 4 had the best texture I think, but there were corn starch clumps, it didn't dissolve very well. In Experiment 6, the texture was shockingly not as good as 4, not as firm, and I mixed things in one at a time to try to make sure everything dissolved.

We tried the corn starch molding, but the finish on the fruit snacks was very hard and not pleasurable to eat.

Worth a shot, that's what experiments are for! I'll try this evening after work. Thanks :)

Just picked up some Pectin, going to retry Experiment #2 but using Pectin instead of Corn Starch. Any recommendation for how much to put in?

I don't mind processed/manufactured foods, so I would say I just want to see if it can be done on my own. I just love fruit snacks, and want to make some :)

I think I'll try coconut oil, I didn't see that in the ingredient list last time I looked. Any insight on how much I should add? (probably to Experiment #2)

Right, I think it has something to do with the mysterious "modified corn starch".
