Saw an interesting article on Jello.

They will never be able to take away out Jello Ads!

Yes, a slice of blue-tinged tuna salad sounds great, thank you!

Uh, I could have swoare franklanguage said the 19nth and that is when I wrote Peter Cooper's birthday down on my calendar and put it in the vintage ad's event calendar but no, all fault is mine, as usual--I can be a space cadet.

TODAY is Peter Cooper's birthday. Who is that??? He is the founder of JELLO! He created gelatin and his wife named it Jello!!

Let's have JELLO (yes even different brands, I call all gelatin jello anyway) ads today in all the pretty and hideous glory to celebrate the man to whom this community is in great debt!!
I know write_light already posted a lovely one, but I had to offer this:

Woman's Day, November 1940.  To put it with all the tact of which I am capable, that is like hell plum pudding.

Let us remember the inventor of Jell-o®, Peter Cooper, who was born during George Washington's presidency and without whom we would be missing a major component of vintage_ads.

This link also has important info about the history of Jell-o®; it's unclear whether Peter Cooper's wife, Sarah was the one who named the dessert, or the wife of Pearl B. Wait, who bought the patent from Cooper.

Jell-o® is even more popular than Spam™!

(Where's the Peter Cooper tag? Founder's Day is February 12; we might have a day-long tribute to Jell-O® on that day.)
