Taste test: strawberry gelatin dessert

Published Apr. 11, 2016

Like tissues and Kleenex, Jell-O is one of those food synonyms for any gelatin dessert. Our panelists are always surprised when they choose a generic variety over the more-familiar brand-name foods. It happened with Jell-O, although the popular brand did place second in our nonscientific poll. The final take from our judges was that there is no need to pay extra for a gelatin dessert base — especially if you are planning to add whipped cream, fresh fruit or any other sweet toppings.
