Jelly is a clear fruit spread made with sweetened fruit juice and jam has both fruit juice and fruit pieces in the spread. The healthier choice will be jam because it has more fruit in it (and less sugar).
Since jam is made from crushed fruit or pulp, it tends to be chunkier (but not as chunky as preserves) and more flavorful, but less spreadable. On the other hand, jelly is only made from juice or syrup, so it's easy to spread but doesn't bring as much to the table in terms of flavor.
In brief, the main difference between jelly jam and marmalade lies in the ingredients; jam includes a mashed or a chopped fruit or vegetable pulp while jelly contains strained fruit or vegetable juice, and marmalade includes the juice and the peel of citrus fruits.
What Is Jelly? Jelly is the rigid cousin to jam, just as sweet, but firm, smooth and gelatinous. It's often made from fruit juice that isn't suitable for jam because it doesn't contain enough natural pectin (the gelling ingredient), or it has seeds that are difficult to remove, such as those found in grapes.
A peanut butter and jelly sandwich (PB&J) consists of peanut butter and fruit preserves—jelly—spread on bread.
Americans call jam “jam,” they call jelly (a clear substance made of fruit juice, sugar and pectin) “jelly,” and they call marmalade “marmalade.”
In British English, crackers are sometimes called water biscuits, or savory biscuits.

So you can say that the UK equivalent of saltine crackers are cream crackers that are available in local grocery stores across the UK. Cream crackers are plain crackers that can be a substitute for saltine crackers, but they are less salty and denser, unlike saltine crackers.
They were made in the United Kingdom by Huntley and Palmers, and in Australia and New Zealand under the brand name Arnott's Salada.
Foods high in starch — such as saltines, bread, and toast — help absorb gastric acid and settle a queasy stomach. "The bland nature of a cracker helps to satisfy hunger (excessive hunger can exasperate nausea) without the strong smells or tastes that may increase nausea," says Palinski-Wade.
The holes in the crackers are called docking holes. In order to stop these bubbles from expanding and bursting, a machine called a docker pricks holes in the dough to allow the air to escape so that the cracker can bake properly. This method reduces the air bubbles and ensures that the crackers are flat and crispy.
The reason the crackers got their name is that they are shaped like oysters and were often thrown into oyster-based stews. In modern times the oyster crackers are most commonly used as a topping for clam chowder, seafood stew, tomato soup, and Cincinnati-style chili.
However, the "saltine challenge" is harder than you might think. The rules are that a person must completely finish chewing and swallowing 6 salted saltine crackers in one minute without help from liquids or lubrication. The dry saltiness of the crackers makes the task nearly impossible.
In this activity the graham crackers represent the plates of earth and the peanut butter or frosting represents the magma (molten rock) underneath. The area where two plates meet is called a plate boundary. Create three major plate boundaries and watch what happens to the earth's crust as you move the plates!
1. What happens to the wet ends of the graham crackers? They crumble and buckle up which shows how mountain ranges form when continents collide and rocks are pushed up.
A tectonic plate (also called lithospheric plate) is a massive, irregularly shaped slab of solid rock, generally composed of both continental and oceanic lithosphere. Plate size can vary greatly, from a few hundred to thousands of kilometers across; the Pacific and Antarctic Plates are among the largest.
The icing represents the magma - melted rock that is in between the core and the tectonic plates. The top graham cracker pieces represent the tectonic plates.
