News: Jell-O - New Jell-O Temptations

Jell-O has something interesting coming out this and next month: new Jell-O Temptations. Fancified versions of their normal fare, Jell-O Temptations are available both in ready-to-eat cups and as a dry mix to make at home.

The cups are available now and come in six layered flavors: Apple Custard Pie, Double Chocolate Pie, French Silk Pie, Lemon Meringue Pie, Raspberry Cheesecake, and Strawberry Cheesecake. Suggested retail is $2.89 for a three pack.

At home, Temptations will be available starting next month and come in three (also layered) flavors: Boston Creme Pie, Chocolate Mousse Decadence, and Chocolate Truffle Indulgence. Each box of mix makes for 8 servings and retails for $2.79.

Each serving of Jell-O Temptations is 150 calories or less and join their existing line of Mousse Temptations.

Update: In light of recent comments and several emails sent to me regarding the Jell-O Temptations commercial, I am posting the following disclaimer: This site (Brandeating.com) has no affiliation with Jell-O or its maker Kraft Foods. If you have any concerns, I suggest you contact Kraft directly via their website.

For those wondering about the commercial in question or simply wish to comment on the commercial, you can view and comment on it here at YouTube. Update: Looks like the YouTube video of the commercial has been taken down.

  1. How the hell is that child abuse to a child!! From a certain angle maybe but not really!! Parents trick their kids all the time and have fun with!! It teaches a lesson form a certain angle also!! It teaches a child not to still from their parents or anyone of that matter! It teaches not to lie to your parents or anyone also.

  3. We have to remember that people who are insecure and intimidated by adults and find satisfaction controlling people will show up here..this is why we are doing this because we know of the abusive relationships in this world and why some stay in then,FEAR,We are raising a generation that will not be attracted or controlled by insecurity and fear .

  7. They had this at Wal-mart. It was weird i couldn't find anything about them till now. I tried the lemon meringue, it was like pie without crust. I loved it and so did my mom.

  10. Take that commerical off the air. Its child abuse. .I am schocked that Jello would allow such a thing on the air to scare young children.

  11. That is what they have told everyone i know all they say is the commercial was aimed for adults.Well I don't see to many happy adults.

  12. Bring back Bill Cosby and Family values, you have definately gone too far and cross a fine line.

  13. Just picked up a pack of the French Silk. It's not bad. I was expecting something more airy like the Mousse, but these are pretty rich. It's not too sweet, and just the right amount for dessert after lunch. But I have to say the initial chocolate flavor fades quickly into a vague chemical aftertaste. But, if you are dieting and craves sweets, this is a nice compromise and you'll feel satisfied by the portion.

  18. At first I thought I was watching a horror movie and then it turned into an ad for Jello's Temptations. It was a mother saying horrible threatening frightening things to her two children at the refrigerator with her husband joining in. In no way will I buy this product while that ad is being aired. It is a terrible thing for children to watch.

  19. Take responsibility and get Jello's product off your page!

  20. Your ad terrifying children to promote your product is disgusting. I will not buy any Jello products again. You need to make a public apology!

    ReplyDelete
  21. You guys are so pathetic. It's a completely harmless commercial. If you've raised your children in such a sanitized environment that this commercial scares them, you've done a much great disservice to them than any advertisement out there. In addition, I profess to make it my personal mission to purchase as much of this product as humanly possible in order to 1) combat all your nonsense boycotts, and 2)enjoy the hell out of some lo-cal tasty treats.
    And please please please can you all cease any commenting whatsoever until you've had thorough English grammar training? You all probably only know one language, and you can't even use it properly....

  22. worst, not worse. When you were picking superlatives in High School, I'm sure you were nominated for "Worst Semantic Understanding".... Bad, worse, worst. Hope next time you comment somewhere you'll sound a little more educated!

  23. Your scare tactics to promote Jello Temptations is "sick." What age person would come up with the idea of scaring small children? That could leave a life-long scar on a child. The woman in the commercial looks evil. Is that your idea of disclipining small children. You need to get a life!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Your commercial is disgusting. Rather frightening for children, don't you think? It's the type of commercial that can affect young children for life-not to mention the out and out lying from a parent to a child? What message are you sending?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I THINK YOUR COMMERCN ON THIS PRODUCT IS HORRIBLE.THE ONE WHERE THEY TELL THERE KIDS THEY COULD BE PUT IN A HOLE. AND FOR THAT REASON ALONE I WILL NOT BE BUYING ANY OF JELLO PRODUCTS AS LONG AS THAT STAYS ON TV.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Whoever thought this was a good way to sell a product is seriously in need of therapy. The first time I saw the commercial I was appalled. The fact that it is still running is in very bad taste. Why would I want to support a company that endorses child abuse?

    ReplyDelete
  27. It was funny! Get over your it people life is way to short....

    ReplyDelete
  28. I agree, The kraft people have really screwed up this time. Scaring children just to push their product on adults.I truly hope it backfires and no one buys this crap...

    ReplyDelete
  29. I don't care if some people think it's funny or not...just goes to show you how low this country has become. I will never buy their product...again. No matter HOW GOOD it is. The commercials are disgusting.

  30. You are an idiot and you probably don't even have children yourself. If you do....something is already wrong in this world!!!!!

  31. I think your commerical is very cruel to the children, I would not not buy your product.

  32. I agree with all the comments so far! These commercials should STOP NOW! Shame on you Jell-O, for exploiting a small child. I cannot find enough words to express how disappointed I am with this shameful ad. STOP STOP STOP! NOW

    ReplyDelete
  33. I am sorry but obviously you are new younge parents. As I have raised mine and would never do that to a child, I find the commercial extremly funny as a commercial. knowing no one would ever do that and take it in the context it was intended.

    I personally enjoyed the commercial because I knew it wasn't real, but all of that aside, isn't this post about the product itself and not advertising? I mean I could be wrong but, eh....

    ReplyDelete
  35. OH, COME OOOOON. Really people? Lighten up. I thought it was hilarious. I have a 5 year old. She thinks it's hilarious too. BECAUSE SHE KNOWS TV ISN'T REAL. Perhaps the fact that your children are watching television instead of doing something active or playing, says a little more than the commercial does. Your kids should already know that the boogeyman isn't real and neither is what they see on TV.

  36. Shame...shame...shame...to stoop so low!!!

  37. Hey...I just saw a newer one...kids are in a tent...the parents scared them and they went running in the house....horrible and scary. I would never, never buy this product. Talk about child abuse, now in the media.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I soooooooo agree!!!! My little 3 yr old grandson loves to watch commercials and this one scared him to death!!! When I got him a cup of regular JELLO pudding later he went into fits saying, "NO NANA NO!! PUT IT BACK! PUT IT BACK!!!" This is not the answer I wanted to hear and I am going to do everything in my power to see that this commercial is removed from television! Anyone who thinks this is funny is SICK!!! I WILL NEVER BUY ANYMORE OF THEIR PRODUCTS AS LONG AS THEY'RE RUNNING COMMERCIALS LIKE THIS!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. There is a brand new one out, even scarier...kids run out of the tent screaming.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I thought the same thing, thought it was the beginning of a scary movie...and muted it...SO horrible if a little child watched this. Great that Kraft needed to stoop this low....NOT!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow...if that is the way they feel....no more Kraft products for me either...and they know...kids love Kraft Dinner.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh, I am so glad that someone else thinks the Jello "Temptations" commercial is one of the worse they have ever seen. Parents being TERRORIST to their own sweet innocent little children over such a superficial thing like jello! I am horrified that grown men and women in your company actually thought this was a good way to sell their product. I will not be buying any of your products until this commerical is taken off the air.

  43. Are you freakin' crazy???? Scaring little children is child abuse.

  44. You're really a sicko. I raised three wonderfully heathy kids and never
    used verbal tactics like the ones used in this commercial. The world has so much of things like this out there for our children to be exposed to...they don't need it in their homes. Enjoy the jello, you'll be the only one eating it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I totally agree with these comments!! What the heck are you people thinking trying to scare children with a stupid food commercial!!!!!!! Unfortunately in the society we now live in there are so many children left alone to do as they please and watch what they want to on T.V. and you are going to allow a child to view this crap possibly without an adult to explain that all that will not happen to them. That there aren't those kinds of things even in the world to scare them. Jello is for kids anyway so what.....are you people at Jello just a bunch of fat adults wanting to eat all the kids jello before they get to enjoy it???????
    The person who gave this commercial the ok should be fired!!!!!
    Jello is crap to me now!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Child abuse? To me it looked like a teaching moment. Did you not listen to it ?Take the commercial in the tent. The mom says the "chocobeast" bites anyone who STEALS another person's Jello Temptations. The camera then shows the kids were hiding two jello temptations. Then the dad pretends to be the chocobeast and the kids throw their "stolen" jello's (as in they probably took them out the fridge, not actually stolen from a store) back to the mom and run out the tent. Sounds to me like they won't steal anymore. Watch it again below to see for yourself.

    And am I the only one who told ghost stories with their families? Obviously they were camping out being in a tent in the yard, and ghost stories tends to be a part of camping out. And for the people saying it promotes lying and deceit to children ... what about Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy?

    ReplyDelete
  47.  You are all so crazy. Do you not have anything better to do with your time than comment on a commercial that is obviously aimed at adults and not children. I am a nanny of 3 kids and I see no reason why this commercial would scare them. If you do not like the commercial change the channel when it comes on, if you do not like your kids watching the commercial change the channel when it comes on. Its really that easy people. Find something better to do with your time than commenting on a JELL-O commercial. You are all so ridiculous its funny, and your poor kids probably have no fun. Thats the real sad thing.

  50. I agree with the comments on this page regarding the advertisement for the new Jello Temptation product. It is my opinion that the behavior of the parents toward their children in these commercials is emotional child abuse and worthy of a call to a child abuse hotline! Until these commercials cease and an apology statement by Jello/Kraft Foods is forthcoming I will no longer purchase any product with the Kraft Foods label.

  51. Love these, as does my daughter. We also love the humorous new commercials. Reminds of girls scouts & the ghost stories told around the camp fire :)

    Keep up the good work Kraft & Jello

    ReplyDelete
  52. The TV advertising for this product is child abuse and should, in my opinion, be punished by jail time! It is child terrorism and needs to be addressed by someone in authority. I'm certainly not going to buy any more Jello products and will be looking to avoid all Kraft products as well!

  55. I have just watched your tempatation jello ad for the third time, It is without a doubt the most tasteless ad I have seen in a long time by a supposedly reputable company. Just the idea of frightening kids just so the parants can have the jello says a lot about the company that make the product

  56. I would like to comment on your "New Temptaions"commercials on TV
    I am appauled that you would make a commercials that use such scary tactics with small children HOW ABOUT YOU MAKE COMMERCIALS THAT DO NOT SHOW THESE SMALL CHILDREN BEING SCARED

  60. I couldn't access the youtube link, but I just have to say I think the commercials are hilarious!!! It's a fantasy people!!! We tell our kids fairy tales about giants, witches, trolls... our kids are addicted to movies about lusty vampires and werewolves... all kids tell ghost stories, it's a rite of passage.. so this time mom and dad get to add a personal touch!

  62. I just saw your commercial for Jello Temptation, where the child is being threatened to be locked up "forever" like another child's story. I am VERY OFFENDED by this commercial! There is enough child abuse cases everyday about this kind of punishment and to exploit it in a commercial to sell a product is just PLAIN WRONG! SHAME ON YOU!

  63. The Jello Temptations new ad is horrible. We do not scare children for a Jello product! I will not buy a Jello product until these ads are discontinued.

  64. What is Kraft thinking.The very adults that they say this commercial was directed to ,the ones that keep them in business are not happy actually down right angry and apauld,were they successful?I think not.I'm so upset i can't even spell.my mother called me from Fla.so upset my niece and nephew had nightmares after watching this commercial she was angry because she was unaware it was on tv.after there cartoons.so how many children are affected by this until it matters.thank god parents are still involved in what there children are seeing.i wish all who cared were together on one site maybe kraft would see how we feel.

  70. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU...all you people who expressed distaste over the commercial for this product! I just saw it myself and don't wish to try it either as long as it is advertised in this fashion. "The first Jell-o just for adults"? What's in it, alcohol? Nicotine?

    ReplyDelete
  71. I saw the ad for the new product.I was horrified that all these people at kraft that had to ok the ad are so insensitive to the abuse of children.
    I am a court appointed special advocate for abused children and this ad needs to be removed NOW. I will use no products of kraft until the ad is stopped.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I didn't like the commercial, but the commercial isn't going to hurt your kids, the commercial does nothing but ATTEMPT to sell a product, I understand that the message it is sending out is horrible but we have worse issues in this world right now, than a commercial....

    ReplyDelete
  73. This commercial makes me not buy your product PERIOD! Stop mistreating those children because to stupid parent's rather drop their children than share this stupid product.

    Who ever made this commercial needs a new profession like being jailed for child abuse!

  74. Where's Bill Cosby? I know he knows nothing about this physiological child abuse with the use of Jell-O. We want the corporation to pull this commercial immediately or we will call for a boycott of Jell-O products.

  77. I wasn't sure if Kraft/Jello would be reading comments on here or not, so I wrote them today, and told them exactly what I thought about their commercial...I think everyone who feels the same about this horrible commercial should go to the jello website, hit the "contact us" button, and write a letter....That is the ONLY way our voices are going to be heard and hopefully have this commercial pulled.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I agree with those who are appalled by Jello for airing such as harmful Temptations commercials. Jello should summarily fire its advertising company, as well as the Jello officials who decided to purchase the Termptations campaign. I am a father of three, a professor of mass communication, and consider myself an ethical communicator. My objection to the commercials is based on all of these roles. To intentionally use abject terror on children to sell a dessert is revolting. As a communication professional, is is a violation of social norms to use this terror on those most unable to defend themselves against it. This is clearly--and plainly--unethical.
    I will never purchase Jello products--all Jello products--again. And I used to lijke Jello.
    Shame on you. It is a long way from the days of Bill Cosby!!

  79. The commercial is not appropriate. My daughters are grown and I have no grandchildren. I let them travel alone from the suburbs to downtown Chicago on their own so I am certainly not a "ninny". But who eats jello anyhow?

  80. I just saw this ad for the 1st time, sent them an email of complaint, then started searching for sites like this to see if anyone cared. Isn't it awful?

  81. too bad because it's actually just PUDDING! and its good, instead of all of you saying "I will not buy it" why dont you just take away your televisions instead since your not going to make a difference anyway?

    ReplyDelete
  82. I have younger grandchildren who are at the young age 3-5 where they recognize fright, monsters in the bedroom, and sad things. Seeing this commercial about putting a girl in the cave is absolutely STUPID!!!!! A kid sees this commercial and feels threatened. Not a good approach to advertising parents treat! How 'bout jello enjoyed for adults when kids are in bed or school - treat time when kids are busy! Not threat of harm! You have GOT to be kidding!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I WHOLE HEARTINGLY AGREE WITH THE COMMENTS ABOUT CHILD ABUSE IN YOUR RECENT COMMERCIALS. I SAW YOUR COMMERCIAL ON TV LAST NIGHT AND WAS APPALLED. I WILL NEVER BUY THIS PRODUCT AGAIN. OUR CHILDREN ARE EXPLOITED ENOUGH...STOP! WHOMEVER THINKS THIS COMMERCIAL IS FUNNY OR WILL MAKE PEOPLE BUY THIS PRODUCT HAS A SCREW LOOSE.

  91. Shocked and amazedSunday, January 22, 2012

    Wow, No wonder we have turned into a nation that wants our government to take care of us all. Really?? We are going to label a commercial as "Child Abuse?" Unbelievable! If your kids are truly scared of this silly commercial then I fear for them as adults because life is a lot more scary than anything that can be put onto network television.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I completely disagree. I am a kid myself (yes, my parents are fine with me on the Internet, they trust me) and me AND my parents find this commercial funny! It is NOT scary, (like another person said, Courage the Cowardly Dog IS scarier) my parents have taught me that TV and monsters aren't real. I never asked about the monster under my bed/in my closet, actually I made jokes about it. I think that the commercial is fine and can continue. It's just advertising, not a big deal. It is NOT child abuse, are they neglecting the children? No. Beating them? Nope. I completely agree with what nina1002 said. "The parents are scaring the children" So? That's like saying a child scream because of a spider in their room child abuse. This is gonna get like 50 replies with overprotective parents disagreeing with me, isn't it? XD

    ReplyDelete
  93. I object to your commercial showing mother and dad scaring their children who have "stolen" their temptations and laughing as kids go screaming into the house. It violates tenents of parenthood as protectors. It surely isn;t funny and I cant imagine it would sell product. And to those who say it's only a commercial they obviously do not understand the profound influence of commercials. (Why else are commercial compnies paid so well?)

    ReplyDelete
  94. Loved the commercial so much I have purchased each flavor. Didn't care for the apple one but the rest are excellent. AND I don't share them with my kids!!! Call the cops!

  95. you all need more to do in your lives. Child abuse, get real people

    ReplyDelete
  96. I agree, this is the most awful commercial. It is terrible that parents would try to use terror and horror stories to scare their children. I dislike it so much that if I try to mute the TV or change the channel now when they come on. I will never buy this product. In fact, it makes me want to stop buying jello products at all. If anyone who has authority in putting these on the air reads these reviews, I would greatly appreciate if you would take these commercials off the air.

    Besides that, what is in this jello that makes it only for adults. Is it harmful to children?

  101. What is particularly sad is that the month of April is Child Abuse Prevention month!!!!!! I saw the commercial for the strawberry Cheesecale Jello Temptations commercial this morning and it is a horrible commercial. Furthermore, we called Kraft Foods and voiced our opinion on the commercial, and the csr was rude and told us the ad was made for adults! Small children watch tv with their moms early in the morning. I found the commercial offensive and will not buy any Kraft Foods Products until they apologize and they should consider firing the persons responsible for these ad campaigns!!!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I meant to add that I bet Bill Cosby never would of agreed to do ads like these for the Jello Temptations products. Any one who finds these commercials funny isn't in touch with reality and doesnt realize how offensive and mentally disturbing these ads really are!!

  103. I agree Pete I was soooo floored at this commercial i just sat with my jaw dropped thinking OMG your kidding me!! This commercial needs to be taken off NOW!!! I can't believe they even thought of this kind of crap to use for a jello commercial let alone actually using it. DISGUSTED I AM!!!!

  104. please people... GET OVER IT! this is a blog about food, not about commercials! brandeating.com has absolutely nothing to do with kraft foods, the main distributors of jello. stop posting these comments here and instead go to kraftfoods and complain to them via e-mail or boycott. geez don't get so offended over meaningless things. use your energy to do something productive. wanna fight something? fight the government, fight the fact that children and teenagers can't get the education they deserve and cannot afford the education they need because of the huge education deficits. how about complaining about that?.

  105. Your Jello Temptations commercial with the parents frightening their children is deplorable!!! Is this really what you want your product to portray? Selfish parents lying to their children? Adults caring children? Are you serious? Jello has gone to far just to sell some not even so good "pudding"? Sadly typical of today's society. Thankfully, I was raised when parents nurtured their children and taught them right from wrong. Loving, non-lying parents I might add. This is yet another example of how child abuse is becoming too acceptable these days. Yes, I said child abuse. No more Jello products for me - or my family. Will it hurt the company? Probably not, but at least it won't hurt my conscience knowing I don't contribute to their behavior.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I think they have taken this commercial to far. Parents lying to their children is just wrong.It is a very scary commercial, can't imagine many children wanting their parents to buy this. Don't think this is a message we should be sending to our children. I am not buying it or anything made by this company until they stop this ad.

    ReplyDelete
  107. GIVE ME AN F-N BRAKE! YOU HATERS!!! It's a good commercial. Where's you're sense of humor?? The only thing I wish they would do is add some Liquor to the Jello-Temptations & REALLY make it for Adults ;-) LOL SUCK ON THAT!

    the new jello temptations commercial that shows the parents telling 2 small children what happens to children who take their moms jello temptations-being put in a dark place with snakes for 100 years demonstrates a sadistic method of parenting. It should be pulled immediately. I have 4 children, ages 18-30 and have never spanked or threatened them with real or imagined forms of terror-which doesnt take much for children as young as the ones on your commercial. needless to say, your products have been crossed off our shopping lists from now on. I will post this message on facebook today.

  109. What kind of people do you have working for you who could come up with this sicking commercial. I will never buy Jell-O Temptations and I will pass this on to all my friends and family on facebook not to buy this product.

  110. It's scary to think sadistic people work for kraft.Maybe that tells the whole story.As many people that have expressed there concerns over this you would think there would be a compassionate response.maybe they have made there point loud and clear they don't care.so that tells us what we need to do,At least they were honest enough to let the public know they simply don't care,but were supposed to keep buying there products.well then we would be approving of their behavior.when do we stand up for what we believe in.

  111. Just thought I would let everyone know I received a reply back from Kraft re: the letter I sent them about this ad. They pretty much told me that they didn't care what everybody thinks about their commercial...That they thought they used good judgement when making it...So, guess what? No more Kraft products for me. Maybe they WILL care when their sales drop!

  112. Sounds like you have no children or children who are older and are used to watching horror movies. Don't go name calling parents who have good morals and common sense. I am 35 years old and saw the commercial for the first time. I felt a horrible feeling inside as the commercial seemed EVIL to me. I WILL NOT be purchasing this product EVER! To many EVIL things people do to children these days...why on earth would Jello (Kraft) give them more ideas on how to harm innocent children.

  113. The Commercial about Jello Temptations, you have been airing is "VERBAL & EMOTIONAL CHILD ABUSE"!! How can a company that has been so child oriented all these years, stoop so low and approve a commercial such as this????? I am going to personally bring this attention to people on FACEBOOK & I think before it is over with, YOU WILL withdraw this commercial. Shame on the CEO, of Jell-O, if he or she approved this commercial!! From the other comments I have read, I don't see people laughing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am a Mother of 5 grown children & 11 Grandchildren!!

  115. I agree this is abuse... jello is no longer a family friendy product

  116. Didn't any of you have ghost stories told you you as children? Am I missing something? My father used to scare me all the time and as a kid we loved it. Of course he would make sure we knew it was all in fun. I only sought out this commercial because I don't have television and my mother has been all up in arms about this commercial much like all of you. I can't say I see what the big deal is. To say it's abuse is QUITE a stretch. But...if this prevents you all from buying Jello then I say they did a good job. I'm a nutritionist and no one should be eating this crap anyway. So stick to your guns and go eat an apple with your kids! :)

  117. I will not buy another Jello product until the abusive commercials are removed from television!! Whatever ad company came up with this idea should be investigated for child abusive. No parent, well no good parent, would EVER think about scaring their child over something as silly as a cup of Jello!
    Shame on you Kraft for letting this get by you!

  118. I have never wasted my time commenting on the stupidity of commercials but Jell-O has gone to far with the commercial depicting parents scaring their young children with a horror story over the strawberry cheesecake temptation product. SHAME on Jell-O for sinking so low!

  119. Love!!! These Commercials. I am going to buy them just for how funny they are. I have little kids and laughed at how witty and funny Jell-O was.

  120. This is absolutely ridiculous...the commercial is fine, raise your kids appropriately and everything will be fine.

  121. When I first saw it, and the way it was portrayed as an adult dessert it makes you think it's has chemicals in it that delights a human being in a sexual way

  122.  I actually love the commercial and take the time out of my day to come up with new ways to scare the heck out of my 4 year old and 3 year old on a regular basis. They laughed at the commercial and think it's the best thing ever because it's how my husband and I are

  123. Yes we do.but many of the problems in the world are because of insecurity ,Fear lack of confidence and then they become adults and on and on.

  125. Thanks Glenda...I think this is the most horrible commercial I have ever seen, and consider it child abuse in one of the worse forms, seemingly coming from a parent. I was actually a bit frightened to watch it at first, not knowing it was a commercial. I would NEVER buy this. A grandmother from Halifax, NS, Canada., Cathryn

  126. I too can not!! believe that anyone thought this would be the path to selling their product!  Off my shopping list for sure.  Total child abuse!!!!

  127. You should remove your stupid commercial scaring the children.  I won't be buying your product.  It's not funny.  Your company has a weird sense of humor and very inappropriate.  Shame on you.  A concerned parent.

  128.  the kids bad ass kids shouldnt have stole the the jello shit!

  129. I've never read a collection of such ridiculous comments in my life (and that's saying something...)  Telling a scary story to a child is not child abuse. It's no different from telling them that Santa Claus won't come if they're naughty. Sheltering your children so that they're completely unprepared to face difficult, or gasp, scary situations- that IS child abuse. You people need to get a grip on reality and appreciate the (humourous) message that Jell-O is really trying to send: that adults can be childish too.

  131. Oh My God people, seriously???? It's a commercial, if you are that upset about it, you need to do some self evaluation. It sounds to me as if you all were "abused" in some way to take something so harmless and try to turn into something so big. Grow up, please.

  132. I just went to the Kraft website and sent them an e-mail. Telling them not to let all you uptight, sensitive, martyrs dissuade them from exercising their 1st Amendment RIGHT (that would be Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression - for those not aware) to advertise the way they choose. Also pointed out that obviously my FIVE year old daughter has more of a sense of humor than you people, because she giggles every time she sees it (the new one with the kids in the tent gets a good belly laugh out of her!). She, unlike all these other sheltered/coddled children, has been raised watching scary movies, taught from as early on as possible that such things as monsters and boogeymen DO NOT exist, and the television is for ENTERTAINMENT. She has NEVER asked me to check a closet or look under her bed...'CAUSE SHE KNOWS THERE'S NOTHING THERE. If you consider introducing my child to REALITY at a young age to be CHILD ABUSE...I'd hate to see how your whiney, whimpy kids do out in the real world. For those of you claiming you won't be purchasing Kraft products JUST because of this commercial...I CALL B.S.. Just sayin' lol :)

    as a mother, i am thoroughly appalled at how pathetic you people are. "oh dear!" it's a commercial! get over it. it's not even as bad as HALF the fairy tales we tell our kids. get over yourselves. seriously. it's a stupid product and the commercials are mildly humorous.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I agree. There's nothing wrong with the commercials, I find them pretty funny. Some of you say it scared your child/grandchild. They're kids, and they're bound to be afraid of some things in life. Courage the Cowardly Dog is more scary to kids than these commercials...

    ReplyDelete
  140. I LOVE the commercial....enough of these overbearing ninny raising parents....Get a grip and try and find a sense of humor...your kids will thank you for it when the find out there's life beyond overprotective, ridiculous parents.

    ReplyDelete
  141. The commercial where parents scare own kids is terrible. In real life those kids would have night mares. Innocent kids watching might have night mares. This is insensitive and NOT funny.

    ReplyDelete
  142. All you people who hate this commercial are dumb and if you have children they will be lifeless droids with no sense of humor like yourselves.

  143. You dont know what child abuse is!!! You are stupid!
