Is That Your Final Answer? (The Difference Between 'Spread' and 'Jelly')

Know It All: What’s the Difference Between Jelly, Jam, Marmalade, Preserves, and Fruit Spread?  (Primer Magazine)

Oh, really?  I have visual evidence that suggests otherwise.
In jelly, the fruit contained is in the form of juice. Thus, the only thing “strawberry” in strawberry jelly is strawberry juice. That’s why it’s more gelatinous and easier to spread – it’s just goo (juice and pectin, technically). 

Oh and “fruit spread”? That’s just a jam or preserve made without sugar.

I dunno about that.
