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.
