Postre de Mil Colores

Even Joel-y Likes It!

My husband is not a big fan of Jell-o. “What’s the point?” he might comment. This week he tasted some, walked away, then came back to finish it off.

Here in Colombia they do have a lot of gelatina: boxes on the shelves in the stores, various treats at the panaderias, and cups of what you see in the picture above available from street vendors.

Mosaic Jell-o mold might be the US version of Postre de Mil Colores.

I don’t know if the chocolate balls were part of the jell-0 mold or if they were supposed to be on the side. One of my students brought it to me this Tuesday. Of course, you can really go crazy and put a zillion different candies in your jell-o if you want a tasty way to learn about cell structure. Pipe did last year. But he had to make it twice, because they ate the first one before I had a chance to see it.
