My friends Art and Marty recently returned from gallivanting around Europe, Berlin and Amsterdam mostly, and brought me some Euro-gelatin from both destinations. The German Götter Speise gelatin came in three flavors Himbeer (raspberry), Zitronen (lemon), and Waldmeister, which I assumed was lime by its green color but is actually Woodruff and had an herbal flavor. Combined with a little Vodka I used these gelatins to create rainbow jello shots for a summer rooftop party.
An interesting point is the meaning of Götter Speise
(or correctly as one word: Götterspeise),
which means God’s Food.
Or more poetically as Food of the Gods.
I actually looked unsuccessfully for a meaningful translation and decided that it just must be an overly complicated German word for gelatin. Being the “Food of the Gods” defiantly gives new importance to these jello shots. Thanks Patrick!

Hi. Yes you may use my photos and info regarding this jello. Please give me credit for the photo and post a link back to my blog. Thank you!
In German Gotterspeise’s literal translation is “food of the gods” but is used colloquially to mean Ambrosia/l (obvious reasons) and also both jelly and Jello, for reasons that aren’t clear, just are. Maybe it’s simply used to denote any sweet, fruity dessert?? In any case, I have friends who are American ex-Pats living in Amsterdam so definitely need to try the green Gotterspeise herbal green Jello, sounds interesting!
