Enjoyed reading your post, as always, but feel obliged to report that not everyone agrees Jello is yummy. I think it's disgusting - not because of how it's made, but because of its slimy, shaky texture and its fake flavor. Worst mouthfeel ever!


We had Jello at least once a week when I was growing up, usually as dessert but sometimes as "salad" (my mother would throw in shredded carrots, cucumbers, and assorted leftovers). I never thought it was anything more than tolerable, but my father loved it. During his final illness, when he couldn't eat much else, I made it for him and was gratified to watch him enjoy it.

If you want a real treat, substitute 7-Up or ginger ale for water in the recipe.
