Swedish Fish hold a special place in my heart. When I was in university learning to become a teacher, I had to complete a practicum. I was placed in a junior kindergarten classroom. We were studying sea life, and after three weeks, we had done every fish-related activity under the sun.
For our final 'sea day,' my host teacher asked if I could create some sort of sea-themed snack. I scoured the stores and found a huge tub of Swedish Fish... in order to make them more of a 'snack' item, I mixed up a large batch of blue jell-o and doled it out into little see-through plastic cups. Into each cup, I dropped three Swedish Fish. The kids absolutely loved the snack, although a few were hesitant about eating their jelly pets. ~ Jessica from Ontario
