Konjac Jelly

I remember that some years back, a gelatin like sweet made of konjac glucomannan was banned in the United States, after some children reportedly choked on them.

I remember that I liked that sweet as a dessert. It was soft, chewy, not really that sweet and refreshing. Just right. I was sad that it was taken off the market after the US ban. We used to buy big containers of these, pop some in the refrigerator (it tastes so much better when cool) and just get one whenever we feel like it.

It's also quite nutritious, I've since learned. It has soluble dietary fiber and may also be used in constipation.

It's now used in some diet products. I'd still rather take the jelly dessert anytime -- maybe that would help me lose weight? Anybody know where I can still find this dessert?
