    After reading all the negative comments, I have to say LOVE it, why not have a little fun with your food once in a great while, not for everyday, but I am sure some clever person can find a way to make it healthy, me I think my kids and their friends will get a laugh this Christmas in green and red. - 11/30/13

    This is not a healthy recipe!!!
    Butter = unhealthy dairy sat fat
    Corn syrup = Probably the worst thing you can put in your mouth! Say hello to insulin resistance, hormone disruption, systemic inflammation, Alzheimer's, etc.
    Brown Sugar - ditto HFCS
    Flavored Gelatin = ditto HFCS plus nasty chemi - 11/30/13

    Why on God's green earth would anyone want to eat this if they are trying to live a healthful lifestyle? Jello products are full of GMOs. - 11/30/13

  • Love it! Yummy treat. I like the idea of making it a stocking stuffer too. Make some popcorn balls, wrap in saran wrap and tie with a cute string. Certainly isn't something to have often, but once in a while, you've got to have a small treat. - 12/6/13
