    spong adjectives etc

    A sponge is spongy. Is this referred as texture? The feeling of an object?

    How can we describe cream? creamy? sticky? gluey?
    How about ice cream? before it starts to melt? It's hard so it's hardy? As it starts to melt? slimy? melty?

    What about jelly? I want to know the adjective that explain the resilience of jelly. bouncy?elasticity?springy?spongy?flubby?

    You could say that, yes.

    Creamy.

    Hard. Hardy means something else.

    As it starts to melt? slimy? melty?
    Good question. I don't have an answer.

    What about jelly? I want to know the adjective that explain the resilience of jelly: bouncy, elasticity, springy, spongy, flubby?
    Bouncy works. Personally, I use jiggly.

    jiggly - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary
