How do you know that Missouri football has hit the big time?
Forget last season’s SEC East Division title.
Missouri is one of just 20 schools featured in a special Jell-O series.
Jell-O released special molds as part of a “Jigglers mold kit.” The Mizzou-Rah set has two Missouri mold trays (one is of the Tigers logo, the other spells MIZZOU) and four boxes of lemon-flavored gelatin.
The other schools featured are: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Iowa, LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, UCLA, USC and Wisconsin.
“We determined school choice by a combination of local retailer support and fan base to develop an optimal portfolio of universities across the country,” Hermés Risien, Jell-O Brand Assistant at Kraft Food (which makes Jell-O), told the Houston Chronicle.
Jell-O says the molds will be sold at grocery stores, but they also are available at amazon.com.
