Oxford English Dictionary- Volume 6


This is one my of least favorite discrepancies between UK & US verbage...

for some reason,
calling jell-o a "jelly" just doesn't sit well.

{Pun intended.}

Both of these treats are fantastic, in my opinion.

There's nothing better than some a warm scone 
covered in clotted cream & jam...
or a bowl of chilly jell-o on a hot day. 

Yum.

Do any of you remember 
the jell-o egg molds from the nineties
that would come available around Easter?

Or jell-o jigglers?

I spent a lot of my youth trying to consume my body weight in both.
