In 2001, J-E-L-L-O (do me a favor and sing the tune as you read the word Jell-O) became the official snack of the State of Utah. Did you know we consume twice the amount of Jello as any other state? I probably buy more than my fair share of Jell-O because it is so versatile and inexpensive.
That puts a lot of people on a Jell-O Recipe quest. It seems you can never have too many recipes for this tasty product. My family loves this Creamy Orange Jell-O. It's so refreshing and light but it's also sweet enough that it could be used as a dessert. If you love Creamsicles, you will love this creamy orange and lemon Jell-O iced with cool whip and vanilla pudding.
