Hi Midnightsky, Leche Flan is somewhat popular here in the Philippines and there is not much Gelatin (Gulaman) that will equal the popularity of Leche Flan in every Filipino Feast. But since I have tasted other recipes of gelatin, I prefer the dessert called Lemon Gelatin Salad and I could not compare it with the local Leche Flan in taste and nutritional value. To answer you queries: 1. What desser is much more delicious: Leche Flan or Gulaman? - As I've said above I prefer a delicious gelatin treat called Lemon Gelatin Salad. 2. Which of the two costs more? If its single serving, I guess it will be the Lemon Gelatin Salad. But if one will make it in volume, it will be less costly since the fruits will be cheaper than the eggs to be used in Leche Flan. 3. How do you make a leche flan? - kindly refer to the procedures mentioned by pepai123456. 4. Which of the tow is easy to prepare? - I would say the Lemon Gelatin Salad is simpler than Leche Flan. 5. Which of the two is people's favorite? - As I've said earlier, Leche Flan is more popular than the Lemon Gelatin Salad. If I may, here is the ingredients and cooking procedure of this tasty gelatin dessert: Ingredients: 1 six-ounce package lemon gelatin 2 cups boiling water 1 12-ounce lemon lime soda 1 20-ounce crushed pineapple 1 15-ounce mandarin oranges, drained 2 cups green grapes, cut into halves 1 egg 1/2 cup sugar 2 tablespoons all purpose flour 1 tablespoon butter or margarine 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped lettuce leaves Procedure: 1. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in soda. Refrigerate until partially set. 2. Drain pineapple and reserve the syrup. Add water to pineapple syrup, at least up to 1 cup of the combined mixture. Set aside. 3. Stir, pineapple, oranges and grapes into the gelatin. Pour into a 13inch x 9inch x 2inch pan. Refrigerate. 4. In a saucepan, combine egg, sugar, flour, butter and reserved pineapple mixture over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until the mixture thickened. Cool completely. 5. Fold in whipped cream spreading over the gelatin. Refrigerate until firm. 6. Cut into squares and served on lettuce leaves, if desired. Enjoy!

They are both delicious.But I like the leche plan more but quite expensive and long to cook than gulaman.
