Summary
Dalrymple searches for the factors that determine the popularity of Jell-O within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). She establishes Jell-O as folkloric by citing its artistic, traditional, variable and stereotypical features. Dalrymple claims that Jell-O is eaten at times of cultural conjunction and serves as a concrete representation of Mormon values and expectations. Jell-O is quick and easy to make, which makes it a perfect food for a culture that encourages large families while simultaneously valuing the ability to balance and accomplish many projects at once. Dalrymple suggests that Jell-O allows housewives to provide healthy, impressive meals without sacrificing too much time. Dalrymple also suggests that Jell-O has become a traditional food for a culture that emphasizes tradition as a force in preserving the strong bonds of family, and acts as a reminder of the strange dietary habits that dictate Mormon food culture
