    I make this each year for my daughter's Fourth of July birthday. Everyone in the family enjoys it. I use sugar-free red Jello and pears canned in fruit juice. I have not been able to find sugar-free blue Jello.

    Cute Idea. I can see this being made with

    red and green Jello for Christmas OR

    green and orange jello for St Patrick's Day.
