Bob was complaining to Fred about his favorite holiday side dish: Jell-O.

"I grew up eating it. My mom made it for all sorts of occasions," Bob said, "but whenever I make it, it looks like fruit soup."

Fred looked stunned, "Well, what are you doing to it? It only requires boiling water."

"Well, mom always made it with fruit cocktail," replied Bob, "but that stuff tastes awful, so I use fresh fruit. In fact, I like to make what I call my 'International Salad' with all sorts of fruits from all over the world. Of course only one of them can be found in the fruit cocktail mom always used."

Fred rolled his eyes. "Let me guess..."

What was wrong with Bob's Jell-O?

Great teaser! Somehow, I was reading the teaser and the word "pineapple" came to me out of nowhere. Strange...

Uh... so what kind of protein is it?

Very neat teaser! I knew about the pineapple, but not about the other fruits, so it was educational!

I should have looked on the box before taking this one on.

Wonderful story Phrebh. Very enjoyable - I don't eat jello anymore unless I put it dry in a cottage cheese and dream whip dish with PINEAPPLE.

For those who asked. Gelatin come from the tallow in beef bones. Beef bones are boiled until the tallow comes out of them. You know how manufacturers are, they throw nothing away.

Cool! I knew that about pineapple, but I did not know other tropical fruits would do the same!

Great teaser, but it should be in Science, not Trivia.
