While sometimes I’ll admit people can have strange cravings for weird foods, I tend to think that as a whole, our palates are alright.

Seriously: the look of these dishes will have you losing your appetite in no time.

But there comes a time when you realize that the best use for gelatin is to make jello shots — not to whip up weird wiggly dishes that are best reserved for the kids’ table. Sure, an occasional, elegant jello dessert can be a fun dish to serve — but home chefs in the 1950s had a whole different idea.
