Who didn't grow up on Jell-O gelatin? Hospitals dished it out after your tonsils were removed and mom always had a box stashed away in case of a dessert emergency. For more than 100 years, Jell-O has reigned as America's Most Famous Dessert, selling more than one million packages a day and more than 500 million each year.
But where and when and how did it all begin? Complete with over 200 photographs and illustrations, this book uncovers everything from the history of the product and its marketing sales and strategies through the year to off-the-wall recipes and alternative uses such as Jell-O shots and wrestling.
