Like this? Try these! If you enjoy Chef Andy's (ahem) "taste" in recipes, you'll like the following websites! Click and enjoy! Feel free to suggest new sites to Andy, or let him know about sites that have gone down. Thanks!

Other Jell-O 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.
Weird and Kitsch sites
  • 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 Chronicle, a Boston evening news magazine.
  • RETRO -- The Magazine of Classic 20th Century Popular Culture!
