article recently on Jell-O's fiscal woes. Apparently, in this protein obsessed, paleo diet crazed era we live in; nobody's interested in a jiggly dessert. As I read the article, I tried to think of the last time I've had Jell-O and I was stumped. I'm sure some relative made some salad for Thanksgiving but that was almost a year ago. Jell-O, which was once a major part in every one of my Sunday dinners growing up, is now nearly completely out of my life.
I wonder if the rest of the Mormon culture has experienced the same shift. For years, Mormons' affinity for Jell-O* was the low hanging fruit for Mormon satirists (shoot, it's front and center on my masthead), but if Jell-O goes away where does that leave those of use who poke fun at the culture?
We Mormons need a new obsession and fast. Any suggestions?
