No need to wrinkle your forehead over that perpetual question, "What shall we have for desert tonight?" For-here's Jell-O!.
Believe it or not, this little Jello cook booklet is dated 1928! I had no idea Jello had been around so long. I remember as a kid it was pretty much everywhere. Every cafeteria had little jello cubes in a bowl and every pot luck had at least a couple of jello salads. These days it's mostly just for kids, but it looks like in 1928 it was pretty exotic. Or at least the makers of Jello wanted people to believe.
|I can almost imagine this being acted out in a silent film.|
|The illustrations are cute. I can't imagine trying to draw Jello.|
|And the illustrations are all signed "Giro". (rhymes with Hero)|
|And we're done. Doesn't this make you want to go buy some Jell-O?|
