For a friend’s birthday over the weekend, we concocted and later made a handful of Pokemon themed jello shots. Though our friend originally had considered doing all 151 of the original pokemon, we wheedled the list down to 50 and finally to around 2 dozen. I’m not going to go into all of the details, and several ideas which seemed good on paper did not work out in practice.
But the following were highlights and ones I would recommend*:
Ivysaur/Venusaur**: blue raspberry & cherry jello with a chunk of strawberry
Charmeleon/Charzard**: orange and cherry jello (w/fireball) plus chili pepper flakes
Pikachu: lemon jello with a maraschino cherry, dusted with pop-rocks after set.
Those three were the best, with the Pikachu probably being a favorite. Others ranged from okay to terrible.
I’ll talk about where the magazine is at and stuff tomorrow.
*:worth noting, I’m not a fan of jello or jello shots (or even Pokemon), but I did enjoy these.
**:The only difference in these was the size of the shot; first evolutions lacked the respective non-jello garnish
