J for ABC Wednesday

ABC WEDNESDAY ROUND 7: 'J'


Jell-O creates giggling youngsters using cookie cutters to design hand-held Jigglers. When that method isn't imaginative enough, a plastic fork or knife can render an uncommon form which is eyed with jealousy by the next would-be artist. Colors, swirls, fun and joy. And, of course, easy-O.

For oldsters who tipple: Jell-O shots are highly joyful.

And whodathunk? A Jell-O Museum in New York - http://www.jellogallery.org/

The image is from the Kraft Jell-O website:  http://www.kraftrecipes.com/recipes/jell-o-jigglers-53920.aspx I chose a simple image but there are some incredibly complex Jigglers happenin' out there!

Have you had Jell-O Jigglers? Don't you just love them?

Hi there, this is a fun post. This is one thing I never did with my kids and now I am wondering why not. We did home made play dough a lot. Maybe it's because I don't like jello that much...

lol - such fun! I remember the days of making jell-o for my kids and the fun they had. :D

Jello Jigglers were the snack of choice for my kidlets when they were little. I had completely forgotten about them. Thanks for the memory.

Carver said...

What a fun post for the letter J. Great job with the jello.

We call it jelly over here. It's still yummy though!

A Jell-o museum. OH MY!

Joy said...

Hey a jell-o shop for all things jello-o, I do like an enthusiast museum.
I've missed out, never done the jiggler thing, although we did have moulds in shapes of rabbits and such like, always fun to wobble.

Probably a decade since last I had them - thank you a million for the memories.

Please have a good Wednesday.

I still love Jello, - and so few calories! Perhaps we could have a few Jiggly creations for dessert.

I didn't know about the Jell-O Museum, but, I know about Jell-O I use to make it often. As a matter of fact I still make it with mixed fruit.

Jama said...

It's called Jelly over here, and cooled jelly are perfect for hot and humid weather.

JELL-O shots! Invented by the singer Tom Lehrer - such useless info in my brain...

I used to love jeloo! Don't have it much anymore! Great post for J.

Carol said...

What a jolly, colorful, jiggly giggly J post!

Kate said...

Haven't made those for ages! The colours really make the photo bright!

Lily Hydrangea said...

Looks yummy! I've never heard of Jigglers before. These are pretty. I usually just pour the Jello into a boring plain bowl.
One time I got a little creative for my son's birthday & I put gummy fish in some blue Jello & topped it with cool whip. That was fun.
Have a great week!
: )

magiceye said...

jiggly take on the theme! :)
lovely!

Gayle said...

When we were kids, we used to eat jello straight out of the box with our fingers - which would then be stained the color of the jello!

Reader Wil said...

Something new for me! I 'd never heard of Jell-O before! So even Bill Cosby is involved!

RuneE said...

I missed the Jell-O museum when I was in New York recently. That must be rectified.

Cezar and Léia said...

Thanks a lot!

Mara said...

I love jello, but I can only get the red strawberry one in the Netherlands. As soon as I can find other colours and flavours, I might have a go at making artwork fo dessert.

Cheryl said...

Giggly and jiggly Jell-O! I don't even like it but this was fun.

jabblog said...

Very colourful and tasty too!

Wendy said...

Oh gosh, does THIS bring me back to my childhood and memories I forgot :) I love how you always use such great colors! Now, I want to make some jello jigglers!

Wanda said...

Little slow getting around this week..but I remember making finger jello for my kids...

Gel said...

Hi there (and so sorry I haven't visited in a while; somehow you weren't still on my list when my computer files were redone after a crash),

That plate of colorful jello forms made me smile and think of my childhood. Actually, as an adult I *still* love red jello! I'm fascinated that there is a jello museum. That will have to a stop next time we go to NY.

Linda said...

This photo made me smile. A museum!
