East Texas Celebrates 168 Years of Jell-O [VIDEO]

Special weeks like these don’t come around often enough, so when they do arrive, I get goo-goo ga-ga over them.

Frankly, I don’t know too may people who are JELL-O eaters, myself included, but if it’s hangin’ out on the dessert table at the buffet, I’m poundin’ down a few plate fulls similar to the John Belushi cafeteria scene in “Animal House” (at 52 seconds of the video).

JELL-O dates back to the mid 1840s, where the “powder” was first patented, but it wasn’t until the turn of the twentieth century, that JELL-O became a household name, pulling down $250,000 in sales, according to this website.

Raspberry, orange, strawberry, and lemon have had staying power since JELL-O’s inception.  Over a decade later, at last count, 29 total flavors are available for consumption.

There have been some flavor bombs in JELL-O’s illustrious career including bubble gum, maple syrup (yuk!), and an attempt to follow in the path of yogurt, with a “plain” flavor.  Now that’s an oxymoron  -  how does a “plain” flavor taste?

Remember, it’s “National JELL-O Week”!  A die-hard JELL-O fan?  They have a Facebook page!
