Jelly vs Jam
The term Jelly always appears to me to mean something else, but that's because I'm used to seeing it called jam because I live in the UK - surely there should be a brief mention in the relevant sections that these are known as jam doughnughts in British English.

Jelly is a sweet dessert made from sugar and gelatine. I have added the word Jam ínto the title. There is a redirect here also. I am not sure that it needs any more explanation than this.--Hauskalainen (talk) 16:36, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
In actual fact, the filling used for (most) 'jelly' donuts in the US is not jelly either. If it isn't technically jam, it sure is a close cousin - although the tubs in which it's packed are most likely to be simply labeled '_____________ filling'. The filling used for lemon-filled donuts is, on the other hand, much more commonly either a fruit curd or a custard type. Irish Melkite (talk) 07:09, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
- Hardly. At the very least, it appears to be written in proper English without the all the misspellings that plague most Wiki articles. Go look at the article on the International Space Station. Even though the U.S. has footed most of the cost, done virtually all of the construction, etc., the Wiki article comes off like it was built by the Brits, who have virtually had no role and certainly not paid for much, if any, of it - programme my a**! But I do have a very difficult time seeing how a bean curd filled donut can be classified as jelly filled.
