New Jell-O flavors

I noticed Mango Jell-O the other day - label said that it was a new flavor. Since I used mango nectar in place of the cold water when making it, I can't comment on how it tastes plain. A couple of years ago they came out with Pina Colada and Margarita flavors but I never found them in the stores. They do have Pineapple Jell-O, though, and I sometimes use coconut milk instead of cold water.
Oddly enough, the chain supermarkets in my area tend not to carry many flavors - I find pineapple, apricot, and peach only in a small independent grocery store. Not a big deal, since I often use plain gelatin and concoct my own jello with various canned and fresh fruits and juices.

  1. Pineapple Jell-O with coconut milk - what a great idea! Must take just like a (virgin) piƱa colada right? One of my favorite desserts is raspberry Jell-O made with white grape & peach juice.

    1. Those flavors all make great Jello shooters. :::::shuffling away::::::

          Yup, I can confirm the pina colada jello shots are ridiculously tasty. Advice, make more - wayyyyy more - than your sophisticated palate tells you to make. They go FAST.

            1. I imagine these have been discontinued (will they bring them back?) but in the past there were savory flavored Jello products: tomato flavored I think. Really, they were used to make aspic. I think there was also celery flavored Jello.
