I’ve gotten a few questions on where you can buy the pretty straws and the fun lids to the mason jars. I actually bought them on Amazon:

Now Chevron Straws are a bit more expensive, but definitely worth it if you are throwing a fun party.

  1. I have a question. Have you ever used unflavored gelatin to turn this into their jello mix? I came across their jello mix at my local Walmart a few months back. All of the flavors were good but this one? There’s just something about it. It’s such a unique flavor. Unfortunately I can no longer find it at Walmart in store. I can however buy a 4pk of all the flavors for $13.99 which is INSANE!! That’s over $3 a box vs the $1.19 a box I paid for in store. If you have turned this recipe into a jello can you please share your recipe? My son LOVES all of the flavors but this one I’d say is both our favorite. Thanks and hope to hear back from you soon…

  2. Sorry, I haven’t tried that yet. If you do try it out, please let us know how it turns out!
