  1. this jello is super fun. you can use any kind of jello. the applesauce gives it a fun texture and i also have put raspberries or bananas ect. in as well. i never put the red hots in.. but i've made several variations on this jello and it is always a hit.
  2. 14 servings from this recipe??? not likely! Obviously you cannot rely on the nutrition facts being accurate.
  3. I tried hitting the five-star review a few times but shucks, ma'am, it still won't give you the ten this recipe deserves, LOL. This is one of the awesome ones-and look at the nutrition facts!, you can't beat that, can you! I promised my GD Carly she could have one when she came home from school but if I don't sit on my hands the rest of the day, she won't be lucky enough to have one. I should have taken your advice and made a double batch. TY,TY,TY Carol. Made for New Kids on the Block, a tag game.
