    17 Horrifyingly Disgusting Retro Gelatin Recipes

    J-E-L-L-NOPE!

    1. Emerald Cantalope

    Via badanduglyofretrofood.com

    Because why would someone who is dieting eat a plain cantaloupe, when they can eat it with lime Jello and canned pineapple (sugar) chunks?

    2. Ham In Aspic

    Via badanduglyofretrofood.com

    Because ham isn't slimy enough! Also, is it supposed to be served on a bed of ham fat?

    3. Cottage Cheese and Salmon Mold

    Via badanduglyofretrofood.com

    Salmon and cottage cheese really is an underrated combination. Also, those boiled eggs are a perfect garnish to balance out all those mushy textures.

    4. Cucumber Relish Salad

    Via badanduglyofretrofood.com

    Cucumber, celery, and lime Jello; one of these things is not like the other.

    5. Jellied Lamb Salad

    Via badanduglyofretrofood.com

    How do you improve upon a yummy piece of lamb? Apparently by over cooking it, setting it in gelatin, and garnishing with capers. CAPERS!

    6. Lime Cheese Salad

    If a combination of lime Jello, mayo, and cheese wasn't mouthwatering enough, then the addition of tuna fish should make it down right irresistible.

    7. Sauerkraut Mold

    Via badanduglyofretrofood.com

    Have you ever eaten a hot dog and said, "wow, sauerkraut should be more than just a condiment!" If so then this is the dish for you; also don't forget to serve with horseradish mayonnaise for that extra tang.

    8. Glace Fish Mold

    Via brainpickings.org

    D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S: Canned tuna fish served with pimento stuffed olives and tomato gelatin.

    9. Prune-Stuffed Roast Pork

    Via vintagerecipecards.com

    "Oh no, the roast is supposed to be weirdly oozing."

    10. Three layer salad

    Via badanduglyofretrofood.com

    Lemon gelatin, pimiento stuffed olives, sweet pickles, walnuts -- this is basically a dish made up left over pantry ingredients that you have no idea what to do with.

    11. Bean and Mushroom Salad

    Via badanduglyofretrofood.com

    Gelatin made an already gross combination even worse :(

    12. Turkey In Aspic

    Via badanduglyofretrofood.com

    Is there even turkey in this?!

    13. Lemony Salmon Tower

    Via noteggsontoast.wordpress.com

    Clearly you are eating salmon wrong if you are not eating it with lemon gelatin.

    14. Pressed Brisket of Beef

    Via badanduglyofretrofood.com

    I think this has to be mislabeled, cause there is no way that isn't made of tripe.

    15. Jellied Beef Mold

    Via robertasrealities.com

    I'm convinced that someone must have been really high when they thought of this recipe.

    16. Pressed Ox Tongue

    Via vintagerecipecards.com

    I'm sure the gelatin really brings out the ox tongue's rubber texture.

    17. Californian Jello Ring

    Via wordpress.com

    WTF?! I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT I'M LOOKING AT!
