  1. That looks so good! Thanks! I will be making it.. but will probably omit the mini marshmallows.

  2. Are you from Iowa? For the longest time Des Moines and Iowa were the largest per capita consumers of jello products. You could not go to a function or to do without someone bringing a bowl of this salad.

    • No I’m from Ohio but I grew up the same way, everybody used Jello..lol My next recipe with Jello will be in a can with pineapple and then slice. My Mom used to make it when I was a kid.
