What…Don’t They Make Mint Jello?

Actual conversation between husband and myself last night, after we’d gotten a little bit happy:

HIM:  How did you make that pie in the fridge?

ME:  It’s Jell-o, mixed with yogurt, then you fold in Cool Whip & throw it in the crust.

HIM:  But what flavor was the Jell-0?

ME:  It was strawberry jello and strawberry yogurt.

HIM:  Okay, but how about if you made it with lime, but you could use a chocolate crust? Then it would be like mint chocolate.

ME:  Except it’ll be lime.

HIM:  No…it’ll be like CHOCOLATE mint!

ME:  Except it’ll be lime.

HIM:  (Staring at me blankly) What are you talking about?

ME:  I’m talking about the fact that you would have a KEY LIME pie with a CHOCOLATE crust. What are YOU talking about?

HIM:  (Thinks about it for about 30 seconds.) Oh….I get it.

    I’m not sure what my favorite part of your blog post is. Could it be that I totally can see you two having that conversation? Or mayhaps it is the fact that you listed it under “just say no?” Or it could be that it just takes me back to times when the phone would ring and someone would say “The cookies are ready.”

    Sigh. Good times. Hugs to the both of ya!

    Kraft Foods discontinued Mint Jello in mid 2007 with a lot of other flavors in a re-organization after Philip Morris Companies Inc. sold off it’s food division,then change their name (Philip Morris)to Altria.

    You can make your own Mint Jello with the following:

    Apple Juice

    Mint Extract


    Knox Unflavored Gelatine

    Green Food Coloring

    Bring to a boil 1 cup of Apple Juice. Dissolve 3 table spoons heaping of Sugar in the boiling juice.

    In a bowl add 1 cup of cold apple juice,1 teaspoon of Mint Extract, 4 drops of green food coloring,and 1 envelope of Knox Unflavored Gelatine. Stir for 1 min. slowly and let stand for 1 min.
    Then add the hot juice to the cold and stir for 5 min.

    Refrigerate for 3 to 5 hours. Over night for best results.

    For a mold reduce the cold juice to 3/4 of a cup.
