Celery Jell-O and Mixed Vegetable Jell-O

We've posted some completely awful recipes and pictures of the Jell-O craze of the 20th century, although those were mostly recipes from the company. Real people make delicious and fruity Jell-O salads from sweet things like fruit, whipped cream, and marshmallows. Or at least they do after one or two experiments with vegetables in gelatin. But at the height of the Jell-O salad fad, the company made things easier with specific flavors made to go with veggies. Celery and mixed vegetables flavors were introduced in 1964. See more of the advertisements and read a couple recipes for the new flavors at ClickAmericana. Yum! See their other vintage recipes here. -via Metafilter

In college I went to Thanksgiving dinner at the home of a good friend. One of the family's signature dishes for the holiday was lime Jello with minced green olives. I picked at it while the rest of the folks tucked into it with gusto. I could not even finish my meager portion just to be polite. They all had seconds, quietly judging me.

After seeing these off and on for a few years, who else would love to try Celery Jello? I would seriously like to give it a taste. I imagine it'd be similar to the themed-flavors of Jones Soda.
