Bring the Snacks Back!

Why is it that certain snacks go out of style? After all, they were good once, why don't people still make them?

I mean, I understand, some of it is a change in culture. When I grew up it was rare that anyone had peanut allergies so my favorite Peanut Butter Goodies were everywhere. My goodness, they were on our school menu at least once a week and everyone loved them. Now? Some schools won't allow even peanut butter sandwiches because of a handful of students are allergic.  I get it, peanut allergies can land a student in the hospital but in real life, people have to adapt to their surroundings, not the other way around....

And peanut butter goodies are SO GOOD....

But what about Finger jello? Does anyone remember that? Finger jello is AWESOME and yet you never hear of anyone making it anymore.

Well, I'm bringing finger jello back. It's great. It's low in calories. Did I mention it's AWESOME? 


3 packets of unflavored (Knox) Gelatine
3 packages of jello (most have the sugar in them)
(1/2 cup of sugar if your Jello/Flavored Gelatin is sugar free)
3 cups of boiling water
1 cup of cold water

Mix your unflavored gelatine in your one cup of cold water. 

Mix your 3 packages of your favorite jello in with your boiling water. If your Jello is sugar free, add sugar and disolve. 

Mix both gelatin mixtures together and put in an ungreased 13x9 pan. 

Let it cool and once cool, put in refrigerator to firm up. Once firm, cut into squares and eat with your fingers. YUM.


What other snacks of your childhood do you want to bring back? Let's make a concerted effort so they don't disappear forever!
