I Ate Jell-o and I Liked It

This is big news, folks. Big.

I've never (ever) been a fan of Jell-o gelatin. Not even when I was a kid. Maybe it was the trauma inflicted upon me by the aunt who made endless variations of Jell-o molds that were stunningly beautiful but all tasted of disappointment and weirdness.

Or maybe I just didn't like the flavors.

But that didn't stop me from saying I'd take sample of the Jell-o Simply Good gelatin and pudding mixes that are being made with no artificial flavors or colors. While I've never been fond of the gelatin, I've been known to use the pudding mix in ice cream, so I figured that I'd like that, at least.

But ... I figured I'd have to try the Jell-o at least once. For science, you know.

And here's the weird thing. I actually liked it. It made a nice, light snack.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa? Me, eating Jell-o, willingly?

What's the world coming to? Next thing you know, the Cubs will be playing in the World Series...

Oh. Wait.

So that's the big news. The less-shocking news is that I also tried the pudding. Chocolate first. Of course. And it seemed different, too, in a good way. Perhaps its the new flavorings.

So, there ya go. If you haven't tried the new Jell-o yet, maybe it's time to try again. I probably won't be making Jell-o molds that look like the Taj Mahal any time soon, but I'll be making Jell-o once in a while as snack.

Who's it for: People who like Jell-o or who haven't tried it recently and might want to try again.

Pros: Tastes better. Natural flavors and stuff.

Cons: Someone could still use it to make a horrible Jell-o mold.

Wishes: I really really really really hope they expand this line with more flavors.

    1. I'm always willing to be the guinea pig. I was skeptical, since I never cared for it before, but the flavor was actually nice.
