Jelly Slugs

4 packets quick-set jelly (knox gelatin)
1 litre sparkling lemonade
1 packet Rowntree's Bursting Bugs (I'd guess gummy worms would work, Yankees)
You will also need a clear plastic bowl (25 cl) per guest

Make up two of the jellies according to the packet instructions, using lemonade instead of water for stage two.
Fill the bowls 1/3 full, then leave until set.
Position two or three bugs in each bowl.
Make up the other two jellies, again using lemonade.
Allow to cool for a couple of minutes and then pour over the first layer and bugs.
Allow to cool for an hour, and then decorate with an additional bug on the top.

Could you give me an idea of the quantity of "1 packet Rowntree's Bursting Bugs"? Since I'm in the US, I'll be using gummy worms, however I was wondering how many ounces to use.
