Refrigerator magnet pictures a Jell-O advertising card from around 1910.  It features an illustration of a pretty girl with a candlestick telephone, placing an order, "Yes, Jell-O, please, all seven flavors."

The Jell-O patent passed through a few hands from its creation by Peter Cooper in 1845 until Frank Woodward's Genesee Pure Food Company purchased the brand and promoted it.  By 1906 sales reach $1 million.  It would later merge with Postum Cereal and form the General Foods Corporation.  Check out the website for the Jello Museum in Leroy, NY for a fun history.
