Empty Jello

I'm eating green empty Jello that Clocky made.

Yeah... that's right... empty jello.
(as a kid, we called it "empty" when it didn't have any stuff in it.)


Growing up, it seemed like we consumed the jiggly at least once or twice a week...maybe more! If it wasn't with a meal at home, it was at a church potluck or part of a school lunch. And, no matter what anyone put in it to dress it up... the "stuff" always floated to the top.

Remember that?!

Now, I just never think to make it. But as John and I tasted the yummy lime green jello he made, we reminisced about the creative ways the wiggly gelatin had been disguised...

  • Mandarin oranges
  • Fruit cocktail
  • Marshmallows
  • Shredded carrots... usually in orange jello
  • Strawberries and Bananas
  • Tapioca with wild grape juice
  • Grapes
  • Pinapple
  • Cherries
  • Apples
  • Whipped cream and berries with nuts
  • Orange slices

C'mon BB!
**think**
I know there's more options than this... HELP!

Ha! It was funny to talk about this on the phone with you. My favorites growing up were the orange Jello with mandarin orange slices; green-lime Jello with pear fruit; or strawberries/bananas or fruit cocktail in the red-cherry Jello. We had it at most every meal. Great for hair and nail beauty : )

What about Jello shots? You know, the Jello disguising the vodka??

Is this admissible? :)
