One of the best things about being a child is being able to indulge in delicious food items such as SpaghettiOs and Jell-O. The dinner and dessert dishes are both delicious and simple and quite honestly…fun to eat! If you lived in a creative household as a kid, there is a good chance that you had the pleasure of turning your Jell-O into fun shapes, known as “Jell-O Jigglers.” And SpaghettiOs has branched out so much that you can buy cans with your favorite characters in noodle form.
There is no doubting that these two food items are delicious all on their own, but have you ever thought about putting them together for one master meal of sweet, salty and scrumptious?
Yeah, we didn’t think so.
But, apparently, the latest craze is combining the two legendary O’s in one to form an unforgettable Jello-O mold.
The recipe, which is just as simple as the individual preparations, is listed below…
Take two cans of condensed tomato soup and add them to water and some unflavored gelatin. The purpose of the unflavored gelatin is to give the mold shape some hold. Then throw in a can of SpaghettiOs.
Place this mixture into a round mound and let it chill in the fridge until it has solidified.
For the final step, you will take a bunch of Vienna sausages and arrange them in the center of the mold. This gives those who adore SpaghettiOs and hot dogs a chance to indulge.
Even if you can’t get yourself to take that first bite of this retro Jell-O mold, it will certainly serve as a conversation piece if you use it as the centerpiece of the rest of your food offerings. And maybe, just maybe…one of your guests will get hooked on the unique dish.
Commenters shared their thoughts on the “not-so-normal” mold…
“My God! Nononono! Never. Just the idea of adding water to a can of them is disgusting! This is a recipe for toddler vomit.”
Some commenters took it to the extreme and felt that the dish was so appalling, no child should have access to it.
“I’m calling child protective services on whoever made this video. This meal is child abuse.”
When you really think about it, who decided that they were going to toss SpaghettiOs into a mold and create this concoction? Someone must’ve been thinking about all the fun dishes of the past and what they would taste like if they were mashed together.
Maybe it’s the mold that sets you off and the look of it causes your stomach to stir. After all, food doesn’t always look so tasty when it moves around like it is a real living being.
If you really want to indulge, maybe you could take a slice of buttered white bread and add some of the mold to it, turning it into a Jello-O mold SpaghettiO sandwich. Everyone has different taste buds so surely there is someone out there who loves this dish and enjoys it regularly.
