Tonight I had a little container of orange jello with just a bit of whipped cream on it. Jello is non fat and low in calories (the sugar free kind) and it was very refreshing. I haven't eaten alot of jello in years as I ate too much of it one summer but tonight I had a craving for it. Do you like jello and what is your favorite kind?

Yes, I do like jello. Not very fond of the sugarfree but will eat it. My favorite is Strawberry and next would be Orange. I also love whipped cream but rarely eat it on jello. When I was a kid we would tilt the can of whipped cream and squirt it into the mouth. But I also ate sugar right out of the sugar bowl...lol Still have a sweet tooth.

It's okay for me too once in a while....I can remember eating sugar right out of the sugar bowl too...and dipping rhubarb into sugar and eating it that way.....makes my glands tighten up right now just thinking of it! LOL

Yes, I do like jello. Cherry is my favorite, with whipped cream, of course.

I love jello as a treat...light but still sweet...the sugar free kind. I like strawberry with sliced bananas in it. Then I pile it high with cool whip. It is an easy desert.

I love the strawberry or cherry jello the best. Of course the kind with whipped cream is the best. I used to buy the little containers of it and just open up one when I wanted it since it was just me that usually eats it. I also like black cherry. I might need to get some, haven't had any in a while.

yes i am a big fan of jell-o. but since i'm vegetarian i can't eat it (due to the gelatin) anymore. so i was quite happy when i discovered that hunts brand gel snacks don't use any gelatin (instead they use carrageenan - derived from seaweed). the only downside is that they seem to only come in the ready made snack packs as opposed to being able to make a bowl yourself at home. still i'm quite happy that we vegetarians have hunts to eat!

I am glad you did find something! Way to go. I have to buy special stuff for my granddaughter they also know how to charge for special stuff!

oh yes, i probably should have mentioned that they're basically the same price as the jello snack packs (if not cheaper in some places). so no paying extra for special stuff for once!

We call it jelly in UK I think and the only time I ever have it is when my little boy has a birthday party. Jelly and icecream, yummy, but tend not to think about it other than that unless someone posts a discussion about it LOL but I have none in the store cupboard so will just have to wait. His birthday on 20th February anyway so not long to wait eh! Ellie :D

I'm partial to cherry, although orange is a close second. Pour a little bit of Fresca in the mixture of the jello, and when it is ready, it is even better. I prefer it just like that, with a little zing.

That sounds good too! Now I am getting all kinds of ideas! It's a simple salad or dessert! Thanks!

I love jello, but I haven't had it in a while. Now I'll be craving it - lol. I like the red flavors. I even have a jello cookbook. One time my sister and I did a rainbow jello mold, it was really neat. Another favorite is the "red monster" although I don't think that it's the real name. But you use black cherry jello, cool whip, black cherry pie filling and pineapple bits (nuts are optional). Very yummy!

I do like jello, but not the premade in the store kind - the texture is weird to me. I do not make it often and when I do it does not last at all - the kids really enjoy it as well. I like lemon, lime, orange but my favorite is MANGO... it is not easy to find the mango flavor and i am thrilled when I see it. apricot is also good I do not care for the red flavors nor blue.

I like the old standbys I think.....lemon, orange, strawberry. I have never tried the mango!

I hate it with a passion. The flavor is unbearable and the texture is worse.
