The fabulous Leigh Anne Wilkes over at Your Home Based Mom blogged about one of the coolest food products that ever graced the shelves of a supermarket, yes, I am talking about Jello 1-2-3!
For those of you who have not had the pleasure of tasting it, Jello 1-2-3 was a dessert mix that seperated as it set, forming a big layer of Jello on the bottom and 2 creamy mousse layers of fluffy Jello on the top. It was simple, it was inexpensive, and it was my favorite dessert as a child. When I moved into my first apartment, Jello 1-2-3 was at the top of my shopping list.
Sadly, Jello 1-2-3 disappeared, reappeared in limited markets, then was discontinued in 2001.
Like Leigh Anne, I have fond memories of this yummy comfort food that has no substitute. I have one box that sits proudly in my kitchen as a memorial to to the dessert I loved. Thanks to Leigh Anne I have learned there is a petition to bring back Jello 1-2-3. If you'll sign it - we'll both be grateful.
