Jell-O Museum~~Homeschool Field Trip

Our homeschool group had the pleasure of going to the Jell-O museum this past Friday.  In all the years we have lived here we have never been.  So we were all excited to go.

The children playing some games while waiting for our tour.

This was boxes of jell-o from all over the world.  Who knew it was so popular other than here in the US. 

This was our tour guide...she was a peach let me tell you.  I loved her!  She was just as fun as the jell-o itself!

Below are some of the boxes from around the world...
I can not remember where this one is from. 

From Egypt

This was from China.  The interesting thing was they are in rolls.

Interesting from Pakistan

This was a recreation of a magazine ad.  The museum found all the pieces from the ad and did this display.

Jell-O mold display.  I love all these.  I would like to collect some of these.  They sell some of them in the gift shop.  A really fun one is a jell-o mold of the brain!!  How fun would that be?!

These remind me of my grandmother's house.  Especially the round one in the front.  She doesn't use it for a jello mold, she uses it to make an ice ring for the punch bowl.

Early advertising gimmicks.  Our daughter Hannah loved looking at these.

Christmas ornament.  I'd love one of these as well.

This was the video section where the kids could sit and watch some old Jell-O commercials.  I remember some of them when I was a kid.

Here is the display of the brain made from the mold.  Isn't that fun?!

Most people have these.  I have an American flag mold.

I hope you enjoyed your tour of the museum as much as we did.  If you are ever in the Rochester, NY area you really should stop in here.   Tomorrow we are heading out on another field trip...this time to the recycling center.  This should be fun!

I love Jello! Especially Orange!

I was surprised when my cousin told me she didn't know what it was, but then I found out that it is indeed called Jelly on other continents
