  1. I’m with you, and I love jello shots! They are such a fun thing to have at parties. I think the cinnamon roll jello shots sound the most interesting to me right now!

  2. Maybe this will be my intro to liking jello shots. So far, I haven’t liked them at all, but some of these look good!

  3. They all look so good and definitely a great variation or twist on a classic. Only can’t decide which I want to try first now.

  4. This is an awesome post indeed. I love jello shots and I will have to make some of these because they sounds so good. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Wow! I haven’t done Jello shots since the mid-1990s!

  6. Ahhhhh now this is my kinda blog post!!! I make jello shots all the time for get togethers during the summer….but all of these sounds pretty yummy… Can I have one of each hehe 😉

  7. So…I didn’t have my first jello shot until *after* I graduated college. Crazy, right? Also, I’ve never made them before. o.o But you had me at “salted caramel jello shots”…what??? I need to make those!

    • I’ve never made them myself – and also had never tried them in college (but had many after college.) Apparently I lead a sheltered life?

  8. I don’t do jello shots often…’s been YEARS but, the Margarita Lime Jello Shots sound yummy!

  9. I’ve never in my life have had a jello shot. Now I really want to try one. The layered one in the picture looks amazing!

  10. YUM I always love making different ones. I think the multiple layer ones have always been the biggest hit at parties.

  11. I think I’d like the Lemon Drop Jello Shots. The mint ones sound good to, but not WITH the lemon ones. I’d have to have them on different occasions. Lemon and mint just do not mix.

  12. The strawberry champagne jello shots sound delicious! We’re going to a party tomorrow night. I may have to make some to take along. 🙂

  13. I consider jello a major food group-but I don’t think I have ever had a jello shot. I know I never made one–with that list–hum–I will be attempting at least 1 or 3 of them.

  20. Oh those salted caramel jello shots seem great! Happy New Year!
