    Yeah, any gelatin product is. Since I am trying really hard to avoid jiggling, I am also going to avoid eating things that jiggle. :laugh:

    I don't go out of my way to eat it, but given the contents, it is a source of protein. I didn't say GOOD source of protein, just a source. :tongue:

    I don't have a problem with it.

    Bleah, I am with you. My oldest son LOVES jello molds. My mother-in-law makes them for him and my husband. My younger son and I stay the heck away from them. We go have cake or something instead. I can deal with pudding, but not jello.

    Plus, I am a chocoholic. Tootie fruity flavors don't tempt me at all!

    Pudding is barely acceptable to me...haha....I am thinking it's a texture thing, cause I struggle with yogurt and cottage cheese too.

    Something a little more solid any day

    I remember as a kid, some kid in grade school was telling everyone that jello was made from horse hoofs...guess they weren't all that far off.

    ChubbyBunny, I'm with you. I've always said my life would be easier if I could eat yogurt. I can't choke any of that stuff down (yogurt, pudding, cottage cheese). The textures make me wanna gag, in the worst way! :sick: :bigsmile: :sick: :bigsmile:

    Where Jell-o comes from is no secret.
    It truly is animal bones and hooves.
    Its also where some of the best glues are made.
    It's because of the chemical properties in all bones that make it connect to each other.

    You can think of Jell-O as watered down, sugared glue if you like.

    I still think its delicious, esp green or orange, YUM!

    But then again, if you want to get grossed out, find out the allowable amount of "other" meat that goes in to hot dogs, I'll give you a hint, its in the double digits.

    Happy Feasting everyone! :drinker:
