Wikipedia: Tofu
Tofu (Chinese: ่ฑ†่…; pinyin: dรฒufu; Wadeโ€“Giles: tou4-fu) is a food prepared by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into solid white blocks of varying softness: silken, soft, firm, extra firm, or super firm. Tofu is also known as bean curd in English. Beyond these broad textural categories, there are many varieties of tofu. It has a subtle flavor, so it can be used in savory and sweet dishes.
 
Wikipedia: Jell-O
Jell-O is an American brand offering a variety of powdered gelatin dessert (fruit-flavored gels/jellies), pudding, and no-bake cream pie mixes. The original gelatin dessert (genericized as jello) is the signature of the brand. “Jell-O” is a registered trademark of Kraft Heinz, and is based in Chicago, Illinois.

Additional Context:
Savory jellies are still served around the world. Ukraine and Russia both make savory gelatin, Korea has acorn jelly that is divine, tofu can be considered a savory jelly cousin. The “eeew!” reaction is very much Anglosphere.
