Since 1897, Jell-O has brightened the lives of adults and children. With its playful jiggle and yummy taste, it is a simple snack that delivers satisfaction. The first four Jell-O flavors introduced were lemon, raspberry, strawberry and orange. Now the cool gelatin snack comes in a variety of flavors, including cherry, lime and grape.
