Why It’s Time To Embrace Pre-Prepared Jello Shots
If you’ve been on the internet any time in the past five years, you’ve definitely noticed the explosion of the DIY homemade jello shot trend. We’ve all seen the Pinterest boards of elaborate jello shots with glitter, sprinkles, champagne bubbles… the works!Some of you may have even tried your hand at these gelatin works of art. Props to you if you’re some sort of jello shot genius that was actually able to pull off perfect shots, but for those of you normal humans, we understand if you ended up with a trashed kitchen and runny, sad, misshapen shots that do not look like the picture.
But look- you shouldn’t have to have a PhD in DIY to enjoy jello shots. Here at Shottys, we believe that homemade jello shots are meant to be fast, fun, and easy for anyone to enjoy. Before you commit to the ordeal of making homemade shots, here are some advantages of pre-packaged gelatin-shots you need to know:
Be Prepared Anytime
Making homemade jello shots that are Insta-worthy takes work and, most importantly, time. Don’t know about you, but we certainly don’t take the time to milk a cow whenever we want ice cream. So why are you spending time making your own jello shots?
Plus, if you haven’t already figured out, life happens unexpectedly (we learned that the hard way – RIP kitchen table of 2012…you made such a great dance floor). What if you get invited to a spur-of-the moment pool party? What if your BFF needs you to come over immediately for some therapeutic partying after a bad breakup?
To be a true Party Hero, you have to be ready to provide a good time whenever duty calls. When you have Shottys premade gelatin shots handy in the back of your pantry or fridge, you can be ready to live life to the fullest at any opportunity.
Have Something For Everyone
Variety is the spice of life, but when it comes to choosing a flavor for your homemade jello shots, your friends’ variety of opinions may be too much spice to handle. Some of your crew will go nuts for blue raspberry or grape, while others are undeniably strawberry purists. Some people can’t get enough of watermelon… some people hate it.
With pre-packaged gelatin shots you don’t have to commit to a single flavor. A party pack from Shottys will ensure your friends get all their favorite flavors without extra work and time from you.
Avoid A Wrecked Kitchen
Though the process of making homemade jello shots may seem simple enough, the cleanup can truly be a nightmare. Cooking with gelatin creates a sticky mess that before you know it, can turn your countertops, spoons, and favorite pans into slimy gnat magnets. Yeah, not cool when your friends are coming over in an hour looking to have a good time.
With pre-packaged gelatin shots, you won’t waste valuable time frantically scraping gelatin off your kitchen counters when you could be making memories.
Perfect Shots Every Time
Okay, maybe you’re some kind of rare super-genius who can get proportions and measurements right every time. Good for you, smarty. But if you’re like most of us, then math is hard, and it’s the last thing you want to be thinking about when you’re planning a party.
Premade gelatin shot packs take care of the chemistry for you. The measurements are already perfectly aligned, meaning that you don’t have to worry about adding too little alcohol and having disappointed guests or adding too much alcohol and risk ending up with runny, unsettled shots.
Look, at the end of the day, people aren’t going to remember if you had the most impressively constructed homemade jello shots they’d ever seen. They’re going to remember the Party Hero who brought the fun! You can always rely on pre-packaged gelatin shots from Shottys for the perfect good time, every time with none of the hassle.
