Jelly Drops - Water Sweets Designed For People With Dementia & Others Who Get Dehydrated

What Are Jelly Drops?

Jelly Drops are award-winning candy designed to boost hydration. They’re 95% water, sugar free & vegan with added electrolytes.

Inventor Lewis Hornby was inspired to create water candy after his grandma Pat, who had dementia, was struggling to hydrate.

With a fantastic solid, but smooth, texture - these candies do not have a liquid centre - encouraging independent hydration for all, through a delicious snack.

Our Story

When Pat, our founder Lewis’s grandma, was rushed to hospital with severe dehydration, he was told to prepare for the worst. Pat, who had dementia, thankfully made a full recovery, but Lewis was left wondering how something so small could have a potentially life-threatening impact.

Lewis spent a month in his grandmother’s care home to try and find a solution. Consulting with doctors and speech and language therapists, he spent 18 months testing and developing the product you see today.

Jelly Drops Founder Lewis Hornby and His Grandma Pat

Since launching we’ve received over 15 awards, made over 10 million drops and heard hundreds of stories from our amazing community about how Jelly Drops have changed people’s lives.

Grandma Pat's story has touched millions around the world, including being featured on the BBC, Sky News and the Ted X stage.

We were pleased to be able to help even more people who struggle with hydration, by first bringing Jelly Drops to the USA, and then to Canada in 2023.

Proud Partners of the Alzheimer’s Society

We were delighted to be selected for the prestigious Alzheimer’s Society Accelerator Programme for dementia innovation, allowing us to learn from people affected by dementia, to ensure that Jelly Drops are the most effective that they can be.

We are now proud to be able to give back to the Alzheimer’s Society’s important work, with 1% of profits from every box sold going directly to them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Jelly Drops have many properties that are perfect for those looking for a healthy snack. Not only do they contain 95% water with added electrolytes, helping to boost fluid intake, but they are also sugar-free, contain no artificial colours and are vegan. A delicious snack, many of our customers find them a perfect sugar-free alternative to traditional sweets.

Even though they are made of 95% water, Jelly Drops don’t ‘burst’ or have a liquid centre as you may expect. We’ve specifically made them with a solid texture, but one that is still super easy to chew, unlike other candy such as jelly beans or fruit gummies. Many people describe them as being a similar texture to traditional trifle jell-o.

Currently, we only recommend Jelly Drops to people without swallowing difficulties. If you have swallowing difficulties, please consult a Speech and Language Therapist prior to use.

Jelly Drops are made of 95% water, meaning that each serving contains 50ml water. Many people find this the perfect way to increase fluid intake throughout the day, without relying on drinks alone.
