Jello 1-2-3

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.

Love seeing your box of 1-2-3 - wish I still had one! Someone who read my post on 1-2-3 jello left the following instructions for making a homemade version of 1-2-3 jello - you might want to give it a try to relive those wonderful jello memories we both have!

Using regular jello, instead of mixing it with cold water put in the same amount of ice cubes. Then put it into the food processor and blend. It will be very frothy. Pour into you glass and it will start to separate!

Thanks! From one jello lover to another!
