No, it wasn't a recipe, this specific item came in it's own package, more or less the same size as the dry pudding or jello packages it was generally sat beside on the grocer's shelves.

No, it wasn't a no-bake kinda thing either, no crust, just the foamy pudding/gelatin.

Quite a puzzle. Now I really want some! When I pose such questions to the missus, she says, Are you sure you didn't just dream it?"

T J I know exactly what you're talking about.. I loved the orange flavored one.
I'm trying to remember what it's called but the name "Royal" or "Royale" may be on the right track. If I remember it came in a chocolate-brown box and was about the size of a skinny dried-soup box.
I'm going to check out the local stores and see if I can find some.

I also tried calling their 800 number (1-800-323-0768) but as it is
the day after Thanksgiving, the Kraft employees are "enjoying the
Holiday with their families" according to the recording.

There is a person called the "Jell-O-phile" who has a really fun
website with lots of information about Jell-O. ONe of their FAQ's was
about Jell-O 1-2-3 and according to her answer, the product was still
being made in 1996:

"Is Jell-O 1-2-3 still available?
Jell-O 1-2-3 was still in current production as of January 1996,
albeit not appearing on every supermarket shelf. You could try calling
Kraft General Foods at the number on the box (1-800-431-1001) to find
out a market in your area that carries this product.
Marilyn J. ("Jell-O") Felling, jellolady@aol.com, January 1996"

She also offers a recipe to try:

"How do you prepare Jell-O 1-2-3?
After adding the boiling water, the mixture was blended for 30
seconds, then blended at high speed for 1 minute, then add a cup of
ice water and blend on high for 1 more minute. You fill each glass
HALF FULL, then refill the glasses completely in the same order. It
"automatically" separates into 3 layers upon chilling. Basically they
call this gelatin with 2 toppings (on the box). Molding this product
is NOT recommended."

Yes, I remember this. It was called 3-2-1 Jello and the box was pink. It showed the three layers. I haven't seen it in the store for a long time but found it in a Mexican store. The writing was in spanish, but the picture on the front was the same. Check Mexican specialty stores that sell tamales and other ethnic foods.

Hi
this is my first ever entry into a forum but I just couldn't resist responding to your plight. I had to do most of the cooking when I was a kid because my mom and dad both worked. Therefore as one of 4 kids home alone most of the time mom bought stuff that worked unfortunetly I may have to bust the balloon a bit. I do believe it was made by Jell-O But you are right it didn't look the same it was in a larger box. It was made by emptying the single pouch of poder into a bowl. Adding Milk and blending with a mixer for a certain length of time. You would then pour this into your glasses or bowl and refrigerate. The setting up was where the layers occured. As it set the layers were the settling out of the ingrediants heavier being on the bottom most opaque by then clear, and the frothy stuff on top.
Hope this helped a little, it was interesting how something like this could kick up so many memories.

Think this thread has been answered several times over the last 3 year, eh?...
Who dug it out of its grave?

I have been looking for this same dessert and I could have sworn that it was called Cold Snap but no one seems to remember that. Maybe Cold Snap was something completely different. I just don't know!

Have you looked at the knox gelatin box near the jello section at the grocery store ? I'm almost sure this is what your talking about. http://www.kraftfoods.com/knox/ It is presented in a glass. My mother used to make it all the time. It has 3 layers. There is a picture of this desert on the knox box. I will be sure to call my mother for the recipe. I know its topped with whipped cream . I'm almost guessing you use strawberry jello with cream or milk for the first layer ( creamy and firm very light pink compared to the other layers ). Honestly I don't know though. Every time I try to click on the recipe link for Knox gelatin it brings up nothing. The box has the recipes for the two other deserts pictured on the box. Just not the 3 layered desert. The box says to go to Knoxgel.com for the rest of there recipes but brings you back to the kraft site where the link doesn't work. Go to the grocery store and check out the picture on the box and let me know if this is what your talking about.
