This was a classic in our area in the 1950's and early 1960'. I can't tell you where Mom got the recipe but it was very common back then. We all loved it.
It doesn't have to be pink. My sister, Becky, would only eat the lemon flavor. If you prefer a different color or flavor, just switch the flavor of Jello you use.
