I found this photo on Flickr and had to share it. FlyHeatherFly, a well-traveled flight attendant, snapped this pic at Woodman’s Grocery store in Kenosha, Wisconsin and claims this was only the tip of the jello mold iceberg as there was a complete isle dedicated to them. Who knew Kenosha loves jello?
Why yes!!!! the Mid-westerners here in this frozen tundra do eat (lbs.) of pre-made Jello. Any color, any flavor, any time.
Great photo. The word isn’t isle, it’s aisle.
Greetings from Wisconsin! Talk of bizarre Jello recipes has been dominating our neighborhood dinner conversations recently. It all started with a Jello Cookery book from the 50s or 60s and just took off from there. A friend featured your blog on her fb profile a couple days ago and mentioned a WI shoutout, so here’s our shoutback.
Thanks Jaxon! Hope you’re keeping warm out there in the mid-west!
i’m so glad to have found your wonderful blog!
i was curious as to what the jell-o desserts with what looks like cream are called? also do you have a recipe for them? thanks. 🙂
Glad you like my blog! I make many of my cream jellos with sweetened condensed milk. You can use plain gelatin (Knox) or a flavored gelatin to give the milk a flavor. Use 2 packages of Knox or 2 (3 oz) packages of flavored gelatin prepared with 2 cups boiling water and once can of sweetened condensed milk. Pour this mixture into the mold to set. My favorite is to make layered molds, with layers of creamy gelatin and layers of clear gelatin.
Hey! I live like 20 minutes away from that Woodman’s! The grocery store was started in my hometown of Janesville, WI. Cool(whip) Blog!!
