It’s Jell-O Week in New York state

ALBANY, N.Y. – Feb. 12 through 18 is Jell-O Week in the Empire State.

Jell-O was invented in the Town of LeRoy in Genesee County. Pearle Wait was experimenting with gelatin in 1897 when he came up with the fruit-flavored dessert.

LeRoy is also home to the Jell-O Gallery Museum.

A resolution introduced by State Sen. George Borello was adopted last month.
