My bologna has a first name, it’s J-e-l-l-o

Hi, I’m Lola….again and I’m a Jello-holic.

My addiction began at a very young age. Jello is a huge part of the Utah Mormon culture.

It is served at every party, meeting, Sunday dinner, and funeral luncheon.

It is served with vegetables,

and fruit.

They call it a Jello Salad….I’m pretty sure that you don’t want to put Ranch or Thousand Island on it though.

They make it look like pies and candy.

and sneak it into cake.

Now, a grown woman, I crave it’s jiggley goodness,

It’s fruity joy.

I think that Jello may be the perfect food.

I’ll bet that there is Jello in Heaven.

and Heaven looks a lot like this. San Francisco in Jello via ifindkarma flickr

  1. Wow! That rainbow jello is gorgeous, really too pretty to eat. I guess I am a jello purist, only strawberry with absolutely nothing suspended in it.My Mom always made peach jello with canned peaches in it, YUCKO!!


  2. Ugh! Jello is so nasty! The only time I will ever ever ever eat it is if I am sick beyond sick and need fluids to just stay alive. They added veggies to it!!! Oh ick!


  3. I used to kind of like Jello. Then I had to have colonoscopies. And on the day before you can’t eat actual food, but you can eat Jello because it’s clear. The first one tastes great. The next 6 not so good. I love the other Mormon food fave, that ice cream place in Salt Lake City whose name I can’t remember right now, but oh do they have good stuff!
