Aw, get a room. Oh, wait, the rooms here have exorbitant prices. Nevermind. As they were.

It won't be long before someone opens a shop called Just Jell-O. Or Jell-O-ARTo. Then every year during Jell-O-Con, people will dress up like Jell-O Pudding Pops and do Jell-O shots while pretending to hold onto their last shred of dignity.

In other news, Blie Apron which just went public last month is laying off 25% of their employees and their stock is down 40%. Recall this was the company David Chang of Momifuko was counting on to succeed after his last investment in Maple went bust after they closed down a few months ago. It seems that people are afraid Amazon is about to enter the market and crush everybody. Which they will.

Enough with the negativity. Seriously. Come on guys. I am assuming most who comment on this thread are grown ups? Why don't you act like it?

It's one thing to lament your disappointment or apprehension, but it is another to mock this business, who incidentally are professional and inviting. And, no, I am not affiliated with this venture on any level nor do I know anyone whom happens to work there. I just feel a little kindness goes a long way, especially when a new spot arrives within our community.

On a side note, I tried the hazelnut and mint chip, which were both scrumptious. Let's wish this place the best!

Yeah enough already! Cute little shop with good product. Their landlord Icon Realty will make sure they get f***ed in the end.

No one on this blog needs to add to their grief!
