“There’s always room for Jell-O”

“There’s always room for dessert” is an old saying used at many meals. “There’s always room for Jell-O” is a popular Jell-O brand gelatin slogan that was introduced in 1964.


Wikipedia: Jell-O
Jell-O is a brand name belonging to Illinois-based Kraft Foods for varieties of gelatin desserts, including fruit gels, puddings and no-bake cream pies. The brand’s popularity led to “jello” becoming a generic term for gelatin dessert across the U.S. and Canada.

Nutrition more broadly is another issue. Jell-O has long positioned itself as a lighter alternative to cakes and pies (as the slogan goes, “There’s always room for Jell-O"). But the trend now is toward foods that claim some sort of benefit, such as protein and fiber.
