Jello?

My fiancé and her sister made the claim that most Americans love jello, and even eat it on a regular basis with their meals. The other part of the claim is that Canadians do not like jello. I don't really believe that there is a large disparity between the love of jello in the two countries. What does everyone think?

I've met lots of Canadians who do not like jello, which leads me to believe lots of Canadians are not jello fans. Whereas I've never met an American who didn't like it.

I wouldn't say that I dislike it, but I also do not eat it regularly with a meal, so there's that.

I don't really like Jello. It has probably been years since I have eaten it. I would say that it is found at most pot luck/picnic/social gathering meals here in the midwest, and lots of kids eat it in their lunches.

I don't know anyone who regularly eats jello with a meal. That is just weird...

Lots of kids that you know? Or that you think they do?

We all like Jello in my family, but we only have it 3-4 times a year, I'd say.

Jello is absolutely awesome if you are sick and on clear liquids. Other than that... I think the last time I had Jello was sometime in 2009 on clear liquids.

I will say if you go to a church potluck in the US for some odd reason there will almost always be 2-3 Jello salads brought by little old ladies. And it is polite to take some, whether you want to or not... I have no idea why.

Some Jello dishes are truly awful. I remember a "Tomato Aspic" that I tasted at a dinner when my husband and I were first dating. His grandmother had made it, and of course I had to try it. It was so horrible I could hardly swallow it, but choked it down. The relationship got easier from that point on.

This.

I really don't care for the stuff, honestly. I mean, I will eat it, but I find the consistency strange.

Kids that I know. I have 4 little ones at home and I know they eat jello often, and their friends do, too. I also work at a school and I know they serve it in the lunch lines.

Jello is good, although I rarely have it.

Pretty common at potlucks though, yeah.

But the jello at the potluck would be a jello salad like Bill said?

Is a jello salad the same as jello? I think of jello like a see through solid coolaid.
