Weird and Kitsch sites
- The Physical and Chemical properties of Gelatin -- More than you ever realized you
wanted to know about the properties of food-grade industrial gelatin. Being a polymer, gelatin's macromolecular nature produces a viscosity in solution which at
most temperatures and concentrations displays rheological properties Newtonian in nature.
Party time! Excellent!
- Lark-N-Mark's Virtual Jello,
featuring Jell-O poetry, food, and art!
Historian Robert Topper
points out that the precursor to Jell-O, "lemon table jelly," was actually invented
by Peter Cooper in 1845, and provides a history of Jell-O.
Kraft's "JELL-O 100" page
Yes, Chef Andy hates animated GIFs, but somehow, seeing a quivering jell-o mold
on top of a marble pedestal almost makes them acceptable.
Tick Tock Toys
gleefully displays classics of vintage packaging from the 50's through the
70's. If you're Chef Andy's age, now you can revisit your childhood
friends Quisp, Quake, Funny Face, Libby the Kid ('That's Billy the Kid
spelled sideways, sortof') frozen dinners, and other staples of the
tyke foodstuff genre!
The Gallery of Regrettable Food is truely
in a class by itself, even if it doesn't include any Jell-O! You simply must
view Oscar Mayer's ad for their great new product,
"Sack O'Sauce in a Can O'Meat"! And while you're there, be sure to visit
the Orphanage of Cast-Off Mascots
and behold the sad lives of such entities as Dave, the Self-Denying Fish
and Undead Lard-Can Man.
The Tiki News Website
keeps you up-to-date (where "date" approximately equals 1957) with the
latest rum drinks and weekly calendar listings for live lounge music from
San Francisco to Cambridge.
Retro Classic TV's
will cheerfully sell you a vintage and fully functional TV set from the
polished wooden cabinets of the 1940's to the mod white plastic
pods of the 1970's.
Chef Andy's Meathead
and the Jell-O pages were featured on
a Boston evening news magazine.

"On Your Bookmark"
This page is all in Japanese, so I don't know what they're saying!
But it includes Jello alongside pizza, Snapple, Ovaltine, and Slurpees. What distinguished company!
Joys of Jell-O has been discovered by Disney! Visit their article on
- The Kitchen Link Dessert page,
an excellent all-purpose recipe site.
