Jell-O has been a household favorite dessert for generations.
Dating back over 100 years, Jell-O is an incredibly popular food not only to eat, but for drinks as well.
But where can you find Jell-O in grocery stores?
Coming in such a tiny box, it’s easy to miss.
In this article, we’ll tell you where you can find Jell-O in your local grocery store, as well as some other tips about shopping for Jell-O.
What Grocery Store Aisle Is Jell-O In?
Jell-O can be found in the baking aisle of most grocery stores, near other boxed desserts such as cake, brownies, and pudding.
Alternatively, premade Jell-O (such as Jell-O cups) may sometimes be found in the refrigerated dessert section of the store, near the store’s bakery.
In addition to boxed desserts, the baking aisle may also contain other ingredients essential to baking, such as flour, sugar, and spices.
What Stores Sell Jell-O?
Although many stores sell Jell-O, the exact flavors offered can vary from retailer to retailer.
Below, you’ll find a table containing the flavors of Jell-O offered by each company. We’re only looking at the gelatin based Jell-O, not the pudding offered under the Jell-O brand name.

Where is Jell-O In Walmart?
Despite the big bold lettering on the front of the box, Jell-O can be easy to miss.
The box itself is quite tiny, and can blend in among other items on the store shelves. And inside enormous stores like Walmart, it can be pretty difficult to find!
Thankfully, Walmart has come up with a solution for this.
Using the Walmart app, you can plug in your local Walmart and find the exact aisle where Jell-O can be found.
For example, you can see here that the boxed Jell-O mix can be found on aisle 15 at my local Walmart. This may be different at your store, however.
By downloading the Walmart app, you’ll be able to find the location of all types of Jell-O within the store, without having to speak with a Walmart associate.
What Are The Best Jell-O Flavors?
The best selling flavor of Jell-O is strawberry, so it’s largely considered to be the most popular flavor.
However, surveys online also report that people seem to really enjoy lime.
Because each type of Jell-O has such a distinctive flavor, we recommend trying out several different flavors if you can!
Additionally, some people really seem to enjoy Jell-O with a bit of whipped cream on top. So, you may consider picking up some whipped cream from your local grocery store as well!
