Why not? Pretty popular in candies. For instance gummy worms:
Corn Syrup, Sugar, Gelatin, Modified Food Starch (Corn), Citric Acid, Apple Juice From Concentrate, Sodium Citrate, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Coconut Oil*, Colors (Black Carrot Juice, Beta-Carotene, Spirulina Extract, Turmeric), Carnauba Wax*. *Adds a trivial amount of fat.

Yar, but it doesn't work out with jam/jellies in my experience.  No attempt to fix them does, really.  Why?  No se.  At best you get a weird, "Something's off here" tart that doesn't quite go

Prunus maritima, the beach plum, is a species of plum native to the East Coast of the United States.

Pina coladas are complex? Is she a college freshman?

For flavored seltzer, throw some frozen raspberries or huckleberries in a glass. Lightly thaw them in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute. Add a little bit of seltzer water. Stir and squish. Then top up with more seltzer. Add ice and/or lemon as you prefer.

For a more adult drink, and add vodka or bourbon. Maybe some mint.

Where I was growing up in MN, we had sumac.  I'm not sure who planted it, but my father was kind of into Sunset magazine and food and i don't recall him ever cooking with sumac.  Maybe he didn't realize it was an herb/spice or it wasn't a thing at that time ('70s). Maybe he didn't plant them.

A spoonful of Minute Maid frozen lime-aid to the seltzer is refreshing.

Yellow mustard, kosher salt, and anchovie paste REALLY makes the flavor profile of your favorite fruity seltzer much more complex and dynamic.

meat cupola. the things in rural Cape Cod we called as beach plums, actually were rose hips. possibly because actual P.maritima were rarely/never seen?

I've been on a sparkling mineral water kick of lately.  Sure, LaCroix is pretty damn good, but if you haven't tried the San Pellegrino flavored ones, you're missing out.  All zero calories but some of the flavors are pretty damn good like Dark Morello Cherry & Pomegranate, or Blood Orange & Black Raspberry.  And the tiny bubbles!

It's not that hard to stick by it, it's honestly a surprisingly good pizza. The spice of the pepperoni, onion, and jalapeno is balanced out by the sweet and tang of the pineapple, all on a nice base of a good tomato sauce, a mix of mozzarella and dry jack cheese, and a light, springy sourdough crust that adds structure, flavor, and texture.

And the brown ale rounds it all out with those malty caramel flavors.

YMMV. Offer void without my taste buds. May cause experimentation.

/ Emmentaler, mushrooms, and caramelized onions also works well. Goes nicely with a Rogue Dead Guy.

If you're into goat cheese I want you to do this thing.  Or some variation on it.

I had to make little breakfast foods for a party, SO:

- Small-dice sweet potatoes.  Fried in a skillet until browned and mostly cooked.
- Small-dice ripe bell peppers. Same.
- Bit of finely chopped rosemary and garlic. Sweat and mix it all together.

- Grease mini cupcake wells and put a little fontina at the bottom.  Or whatever cheese.
- Add tater mixture. Top with goat cheese.
- Fill almost to the top with seasoned eggs.

- Bake until baked.

I want to do this again as a frittata instead of fiddly egg bites.  But they were SO YUMMY.
