To kick off a new digital exhibit, "Jell-O: America’s Most Famous Dessert At Home Everywhere", Dr. Nicole Tarulevicz of the School of Humanities at the University of Tasmania provides some historical perspective on Jell-O brand gelatin in America and abroad.
Using materials drawn from the culinary ephemera holdings of the Janice Bluestein Longone Culinary Archive at U-M Library, the exhibit explores how the Jell-O company’s early 20th century advertising used depictions of the exotic to sell the product to Americans. The ads included lavishly illustrated scenes of imagined food preparation and consumption around the world, some created by noted contemporary artists.
