Sales of JELL-O have fallen.

After years of success, helped by commercials featuring actor Bill Cosby, Kraft says JELL-O sales have dropped 19-percent over the past five years.

The company says the popularity of alternatives, like Greek yogurt, have led to the drop.

LeRoy in Genesee County is the birthplace of JELL-O.
