We always keep an array of Jello flavors on hand in our pantry.  The cherry Jello is great for making a Jello cake!  Not only does this light dessert taste great on its own but you can use it for so many different things.  It also works great when you add your own fruit to it.

Jello is the best on the shelf.  I do not care for the Sugarless but we are constantly buying all flavors. Great for upset tummies as well! Always have some on hand and the kids are always asking for it to be made. Will continue to buy as long as it stays the same! Can always find it just about everywhere!

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!
