Pick: Would you eat these quirky Christmas dishes from the 1960s?

Can we interest you in some creamed onions, cheesy mince and hot Dr. Pepper?

Christmas dishes sure were creative in the Sixties. Fancy molds and packets of gelatin made for some colorful, sculptural (and jiggling) foods. There were savory Jell-O salad and even edible candles. Yes, that's candles, not candies.

We tore out some vintage recipes from December issues of Ladies' Home Journal in the 1960s. We want to know if you'll say "Ho, ho, ho!" or "No, no, no!"

Pick which dishes you would try. See how your taste stacks up against others.
  1. Could you take a bite out of the adorable (and coconut covered) Big Mr. Igloo?

Show of hands! Who thinks the MeTV Team should be required to include a link to the RECIPES for all of their "Would you eat...?" quizzes? I mean, talk about your teases!!
(OK, OK - so I only got "23% similar". What can I say - if it can't escape, I'll eat it.)
BTW, I still make cranberry sauce gelatin salad to this day, from my mother's recipe. It's a big holiday hit with everyone in my home.
(OK, OK - so I live alone. What can I say?)
