In a recent thread (http://www.seriouseats.com/talk/2009/02/i-dont-go-there-because-i-cant-eat-the-food.html) everyone seems to have family who makes jello salad. I never HEARD of jello salad till I came to these boards (thank goodness!).
I'm from NYC - where are you jello families from? Did I just get lucky to escape it, or does it not exist is my part of the country?
