jujubes

What is a jujube? I've always heard it pronounced "Joo-Joo-Bees," but the spelling looks to me it should read "Joo-Joobs." Regardless, these hard little translucent cylinders are a bizarre suspension of sugar, starch and mineral oil-- hence the "fat free" logo. They look a little bit like LEDs, or the lenses that go over them. If you wanted to build the edible equivalent of an LED matrix, these are your best bet.
