Cherry isn't a great flavor to me for most sweets and/or candy so I'm not surprised that I'm not a fan of the cherry Jello. I will make it for everyone else, or for a get together.

Cherry is the best flavor - Jello is an amazing snack! Paired together this may be one of the best snacks ever. They are great for on the go, and very delicious. I highly recommend NOT looking up on the internet what Jello is made out of though or you may never eat it again!

This flavor is really tasty! I like all flavors, but also like that they will never stop selling because they make the best recipes! Just like the cherry, the jello mix boxes are pretty simple and easy to make.
