I received samples in exchange for my honest review.
** Read update at the bottom of this post; this product has been discontinued.
I am a big label reader, between my daughter’s peanut allergy and looking for ingredients that I feel are wholesome and safe for my family. I was excited to hear about Jell-O Simply Good, a line of Jell-O products that have simple, natural ingredients.
I let the kids open the box when it arrived, without realizing what was inside. They were so excited to find a variety of Jell-O Products, including gelatin and pudding in lots of great flavors! They couldn’t wait to make a bunch of these Jell-O mixes, and one of the things that I think makes Jell-O so fun is that the pudding and gelatin can be prepared quickly and easily.
My younger daughter can be picky about food, so I let her pick out a flavor first. She chose the Strawberry Gelatin. There are four awesome flavors of the Simply Good Gelatin, so it was a tough choice for all of us!
The gelatin is so easy to make: mix the powder with hot water and chill in the fridge. Because it just requires mixing, the kids could handle making this on their own (being careful about the hot water).
The pudding line also has four great flavors. Although we normally don’t make pudding very often at all, we found ourselves making one every night, and finishing the whole bowl between the four of us.
The first flavor of pudding that the kids chose was of course the Chocolate, which I figured would be on the top of their list! The pudding is also very easy to make, by mixing the powder with milk and allowing to chill in the fridge.
Of course, the chocolate pudding turned into making a “dirt and worms cup”. We have a pantry of dye-free, nut-free items on hand, so the kids were thrilled to have this treat after dinner.
One of my favorites is the Vanilla Pudding, which kind of brought me back to my childhood. My mom used to make tapioca pudding all the time, and this reminds me of that great vanilla flavor.
Simply Good takes fun, yummy products and makes them even better! We have had so much fun with these Jell-O Simply Good gelatin and pudding packets. The kids loved picking out different flavors and actually making them on their own. These treats are easy to make and every night, we share another pack of pudding or gelatin.

** UPDATE: I couldn’t find this product anywhere, so I looked online and found this:
Since this product has been discontinued, I have found others that are similar, like these Simple Mixes.
Amazon has plenty of options, and you can also likely find ones at places like Whole Foods.
I really like that new packaging! Those little boxes were always getting shoved to the back of our cabinet!
Of course you must have worms in chocolate pudding. 😉 I think these have great new packaging.
That is so great! I hate giving my kids anything with artificial ingredients, so I can’t wait to snag some of this.
Well, that’s pretty awesome. I stopped eating anything with artificial ingredients, which meant Jell-O. Until now, that is! I have to get some of this stuff.
I absolutely love that these don’t contain Artificial Dyes, Colors, or Preservatives – it’s so awesome that brands are listening to us!
We love pudding at our house and the Jello Simply Good pudding looks delicious and I like that it does not contain Artificial Dyes, Colors, or Preservatives! I will have to try this pudding out with the kids.
Our family loves these! We’ve tried all the flavors and chocolate caramel pudding is our favorite!
These sound terrific. Thinking back tot the old jellos I can only imagie what dyes were in them. Some had to be pretty wicked.
Where can I buy this kind?
HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR JELLO WITHOUT “JUNK” IN THEM. HOW CAN I ORDER YOUR JELLO’S AND PUDDINGS THAT ARE FREE FROM DYES AND CHEMICALS?
Wow, my whole family loves this especially chocolate flavor is my kid’s favourite.
Oh, I haven’t heard of this before but it’s such a great option! I try to cut dyes from our food, and my nephew can’t eat them so I’ll have to get this next time he’s visiting.
