Sooooo happy that most I've never heard of and my mother evidently didn't fix for friends. Except that lime jello and cottage cheese mold, think that one didn't die out until the end of the 70s. Have to say that those radish flowers were kind of cute...

There was really a Jello and turning-food-into-loaves fad going on in the 50's, wasn't there?

I was giggling before I got to the Banana Candle, but then I completely lost control - ROFL! - "Put that back in your nightstand drawer, lady!!"

Great comments. I still can't quite believe these molded jello extravaganzas caught on. The pineapple liver sausage one was pretty disturbing.

they would probably look at what we eat - chia seeds and oat milk, and quinoa and think what we eat is gross too
