OH, it's done with birthday candles. Which is marginally reassuring, I guess.

TeaRoses: Rodrosehiptea on March 1st, 2012 05:04 pm (UTC)

That's very ... clever.

And by clever I mean "Please don't make me think about it eating it."

I'm glad they put that part in about the birthday candles, I wasn't to keen on eating something that was flammable.

You do realize most food is flammable right?

In fact pretty much ALL food is flammable. The process by which the body gets energy from food is remarkably similar, chemically, to combustion.

Fuel + oxygen ----energy released---> carbon dioxide + water

Try lighting, say, a corn flake on fire. They burn really well! ;)

Why...is it flesh colored instead of cranberry colored? The fresh cranberries I buy during the holidays are always a very dark, deep red. :=/
Tarsius syrichtakoboldmaki on March 1st, 2012 06:02 pm (UTC)
Because of the mayonaise, I guess...
Ew :(
Tarsius syrichtakoboldmaki on March 1st, 2012 06:03 pm (UTC)

also I want to make this.
I mean seriously. How can you not. (Just without mayonaise.)
DebW: call security bendy1deborahw37 on March 1st, 2012 06:21 pm (UTC)

Mmmm gelatin, mayo, melted wax and, by the look of the dustpan on the table, cranberries you've just swept up from the floor! Way to get rid of overstaying house guests!
htl_1126: happy bunnyhtl_1126 on March 1st, 2012 08:00 pm (UTC)
OMG, I completely missed the dustpan there I could only stare in horror at the flesh colored lit up tubes. Horrified!!!
Janejanenx01 on March 1st, 2012 09:01 pm (UTC)
That's not a dustpan, it's a cranberry scoop! You just can't see the tines in the blurry picture.
mysid: Minionsmysid on March 3rd, 2012 02:09 am (UTC)
For those unfamiliar with cranberry scoops. I guess it supposed to show how fresh the cranberries were--you know, before they got chopped up, mixed with mayonaise and gelatin, and lit on fire. Gotta have the freshest cranberries to do that.

EDIT: Dang, I almost forgot the YES

I'm just having a hard time imagining how cranberries and mayo taste together. It doesn't sound like the best combination in the world, especially when you add melted wax flavor from the candle.

No matter how it tastes, the color of it would make me ask why I was being served a flaming meat log. I'm rather sure I would decline the offer of a dollop of mayo on top, too.

Minus the wax, you should try a Thanksgiving leftovers sammich, to test the waters with a cranberry/mayo combo.
We're flat broke, but hey - we do it in style....: Huh?kshandra on March 1st, 2012 07:20 pm (UTC)

What in the hell...I lived through the 60s but I'm beginning to realize more and more what a bizzaro world it was.

But meat doesn't qualify for the contest!

cristinashortsweetcynic on March 1st, 2012 11:12 pm (UTC)

this is...on the one hand, i love everything cranberry. EVERYTHING.

but this...i looked at it and thought it was mystery meat, dumped right out of the can and onto lettuce...and then set on fire. and i didn't understand. and i don't think i like cranberries anymore.

You'll start a new holiday tradition...of vomiting! Woo-hoo! Party time for all!
greengardenfroggreengardenfrog on March 1st, 2012 11:24 pm (UTC)
Wow. Unappetizing looking AND potentially full of wax. :P
If anyone actually served these i wonder what the reaction of the diners was...
Me.cremepuff on March 1st, 2012 11:55 pm (UTC)
This is actually a nifty idea. I just don't get where the mayo comes in...why do so many of these ads combine mayo with Jello?...just no.
bunnycat94bunnycat94 on March 2nd, 2012 12:32 am (UTC)
Um, do these look slightly phallic to anyone else, or do I just have a dirty mind?
franklanguagefranklanguage on March 2nd, 2012 02:17 pm (UTC)
What? The are phallic!

I am so making this the next time we host Thanksgiving. The nieces and nephews will love it and the adults will be appropriately horrified.

... serve cranberry "candles" as your salad

Because a salad isn't a salad unless it's on fire and can provide ambient lighting.

foolishfiddlerfoolishfiddler on March 2nd, 2012 01:38 am (UTC)
Yes! Naughty, naughty jello!
Gillian: Excel Sagagillianinoz on March 2nd, 2012 02:01 am (UTC)
...mayonaise... Why did it have to be mayonaise...

Not that it matters...fearandloathing on March 2nd, 2012 01:38 pm (UTC)
I know... cream cheese might have been doable, but cranberries and mayo?? *gag*

Oh, UGH! I thought these were made out of ground ham and ham fat at first! God, these look disgusting!
cactuswrencactuswren on March 2nd, 2012 04:05 am (UTC)
Nothing quite so festive for Thanksgiving as SETTING FIRE TO THE DESSERT.

Susan Trexelalmond_cakes on March 2nd, 2012 03:51 pm (UTC)
Quite a bizarre jello creation; like people have wanted to eat food shaped like pillar candles? I've actually eaten a few cranberry jello salads and they are quite tasty; but not in this shape!
Nico: eepvilakins on March 2nd, 2012 11:47 pm (UTC)
Yes, for sheer disgust level.
sukairasukaira on March 3rd, 2012 01:19 am (UTC)
Yes. I would love to know how someone came up with this recipe, particularly the candle part of it.
Man Writing Slashwrite_light on March 3rd, 2012 01:27 am (UTC)
How they came up with that? "Hey what if we put a candle in it? "
Rocco Pizzoferratofoodpoisoningsf on March 4th, 2012 03:41 am (UTC)
You've come up with some wrong, but this is really wrong.

But hey, it's one way to make sure your guests screen your calls/block your email/never accept another invitation.

Eating something with candle wax melted in the center holds absolutely no appeal to me whatsoever. Actually, even without the candle inserted in the center, it still sounds gross.
