Tough and messy competition at jelly contest
Records toppled along with plenty of very messy jelly today as schools from across the county competed in the Tallest Jelly Competition at the Forum in Norwich.
Last year's top height of 63cm, the tallest since the Institute of Food Research contest began, by a team from Hethersett Old Hall School was beaten by the same group whose bran flakes, bread and instant mash potato mixtures were stacked together to create a 72cm structure.
That was beaten by combined efforts from Sheringham High and Kelling Primary schools whose late decision to join their two jellies reach the dizzy heights of 75cm.
But their efforts were discounted by judges who could only accept entries from single schools. They were instead awarded the prize for best overall jelly after impressing the IFR scientists with their method which used couscous.
Acle Primary School got the prize for best work book which awards a school with a particularly well thought through idea, even if it did not work on the day.
