Peach Jell-O Recipe Cards

In 1897, Jell-O came into existence with four flavors: strawberry, raspberry, orange, and lemon. This was followed a few years later by cherry and chocolate, and, in 1907, peach became the seventh Jell-O flavor. Somewhere along the way, peach fell out of favor, but it was reintroduced in 1975. In celebration of this heralded event, General Foods printed up this sheet of recipe cards that feature particularly ghastly colors and particularly translucent foods.

Interesting, huh? Learn more about the fascinating history of Jell-O! And, in case you can't get enough gelatin pictures, I've officially scanned in all my Jell-O cookbooks, so more will be posted this week!
