    you need to run liquid over the mold to let it coat each shape, then you turn it so most runs out but the whole things coated. then u scrape the top to make the edges crisp, then let it set... if its too thin, add another layer and repeat til ur happy with the thickness

    When I was a kid in the early 90s, I could have sworn that Gushers came in a tear drop shape. They were filled with so much of the sugary fruit juice and were amazing. Then, they changed the shape to the diamond things and put less juice in. But nowadays, there is almost no juice in them at all and the sour flavors are disgusting.
