When an economist buys jell-o

We recently had our housewarming party, which was epic...
Like any good house party we had jell-o shots. These turned out, interestingly...

I found the recipe for the strongest jell-o shots -- which allows you to have 8-14 ounces of vodka in a basic batch.  We did 12, and yup, they were like straight alcohol. Maybe we'll go for a more reasonable level next time...

But before the shots were made, supplies needed to be purchased. There are soo many jell-o options out there. It's pretty ridiculous actually:



I'm pretty sure my boss would cry if he saw this.  Is demand really this high for jell-o?  Did I miss the epidemic that is only cured by strawberry jell-o? But wait, I really want melon fusion jell-o, but I want it in sugar free, why can I not get this?? What kind of world are we living in people?

But back to jell-o shots. More were made for the murder mystery party.  But this time we classed it up with shots from this awesome website. We made a halloweeny one, appropriate yes. 


They tasted delicious, much better than they looked, but that's the point. 

So the next time you're planning a party please include a jell-o shot on the menu. It can be strong, weak, pretty, or funky, just so long as it's there. And don't be overwhelmed by the jell-o selection, just do some yoga breathing before marching down the aisle...
