Ahh, Jell-O! It's a favorite in many Mormon households and a staple of ward potlucks across the US. We're all for a good Jell-O dish! (In fact, you should make sure to check out the winners from our Jell-O recipe contest.) But there are just some things you shouldn't do with this strange, jiggly treat. Check out our list of things you shouldn't do with Jell-O:
Don't . . .
Look directly at it as you eat
Jell-O's jiggliness is almost memorizing. Looking at it too long could lead to heartburn, headaches, nausea, and leftover Jell-O.
Learn Jell-O Tricks
Because just no.
Make sculptures of things
Now you can have your phone and eat it too! Ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring.... Jell-O phone!
Put things in it
A little strawberry or raspberry in Jell-O can be divine--but keep the office supplies out of it.
Make it into a pet
J-E-L-L-O... it's alive!
Learn what Jell-O is made of
Just like Oreo cookies, you simply can't enjoy Jell-O the same way once you've read the ingredients label.
Try to figure out if Jell-O is a solid or a liquid
Is it neither? Both? Does it matter?
Give it to sick people
They're already sick--and giving them a liquid-solid whose ingredients are best left a mystery is probably a no.
We're all for the love of Jell-O--but it can be taken too far.
