When the kids were little I had to send snacks for snack day at school when it came our time...I used to popcorn and have my old maid hunters do their job...then I would sprinkle Jello over the popcorn, but I got to thinking about adding it to my marshmallow popcorn balls...They are pretty good I must say....this has a flavor all its own
