I completely understand that Jello is supposed to be a “fun food”, but I’m guilty of sucking the fun right out of it. For me to eat it, it must not have anything in it, or on it. No fruits mixed in, no ice cream, no whipped cream and especially no custard topping- yuck! AND it must be either : strawberry, red raspberry, cherry or purple grape flavor. If not I will scrunch up my face, shake my head “no”, stick out my tongue and refuse to even taste it. So it probably goes without saying that Jello salad is a definite “notta chance!”

YEP! I’m a Jello fun-sucking-snob.

When I tore open this morning’s 12 days of tea packet and saw LIME jello SALAD I automatically had a case of my scrunch-faced, head-shaking tongue sticky-outty protest.

(Aside: I must refuse to even look at Jello salad whenever it’s around because I didn’t know there were marshmallows in it)

I thought all hope was lost in me liking this tea. Both the dry leaf and the brewed tea smells exactly like lime jello, so much that I expected to see some of the jello powder mixed in with the leaves. I seriously expected to dislike this tea, so as I brought my cup to my lips for that initial sip, my face was prescrunched like the Grinch. But as the tea went through my lips and over my gums, my heart grew 3 sizes. “Huh! that’s pretty good!” I don’t think I’d buy a full 2 oz bag of this, but I will enjoy finishing what I have. If 52teas were to ever start selling smaller sample sizes, I would definitely buy that, which is saying a lot for a tea, I thought I’d have to choke down or feed to the drain.

This Jello snob was pleasantly surprised.

I can’t convince myself to try this. I do not care for lime green jello or green tea, so I’m pretty sure I’d hate it. Passing it all on to my 12 days partner in crime :)

Ooooh, I have a weakness for lime jello! :P (Best jello is lemon jello made w/half water, half-OJ — TART!! Idk if that would work for you? Maybe with pulp-free OJ, hee.)

I’m not usually a fan of strong citrus flavors, which is odd because I enjoy eating actual citrus fruits. This one is pretty good, but with the strong taste, I can see how it may not be for everyone.

Ozli – I’ve never tried lemon jello with OJ – doesn’t sound like my thing, but I promise if I ever run across it I’ll at least give it a try.

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
