February 12-18- National Jello Week
Officially declared by the Utah Legislature in 2001, the second week of February is National Jello Week. Jello has a long and interesting history. Jell-O, as it was originally called, has existed as a product since the late 1890′s.
The Jello brand is now owned by Kraft Foods, which sells more than 300 million boxes a year. LeRoy, New York was the original home of Jell-O, and currently houses the Jell-O Museum
Jello currently comes in more than 25 flavors of gelatin and 30 flavors of pudding products for gourmet recipes. Comedian Bill Cosby was the Jello spokesman from 1974 until 2010.
Most adults have tried Jello shots (Jello with alcohol).
