Beginning in the 1930s, the American obsession with congealed salads led JELL-O to introduce several new flavors, including Seasoned Tomato, Italian, Celery and Mixed Vegetable, which have since been discontinued. Popular recipes in the 1930s mixed JELL-O with add-ins such as cooked pasta, celery, green peppers and cabbage.
