Jello-O ad, 1912

"'Mine's best'

'Oh, I know mine is best,' Dorothy says. 'Just taste it, Bobbie!'

And Bobbie says, 'It's good, but mine's best.'

For Dorothy's party mamma made has made up six lovely dishes of Jell-O each for a different flavor, and all so good that three little girls and three little boys hold one opinion: 'Mine's best.'

Children know what is good to eat. Who ever heard of a child that did not like Jell-O, or ever saw two youngsters who could agree as to which flavor was best - all being so good?

The Jell-O Book tells how to make many new desserts and salads in the easy Jell-O way, which cuts out work and worry and most of the expense. A copy of the book will be mailed free to any woman who will send us her name and address.

Jell-O is put up in six pure fruit flavors: Strawberry, Raspberry, Lemon, Orange, Cherry, Chocolate, and is sold two for 25 cents."
