You have this product listed under the 80's. I must disagree; I was born in 1961, and I can remember Shake A Pudding when I was around 8 or so years old. That would be in the 60's, or early 70's.

It was called Shake a Puddin' and it was in the late 60's It used WATER instead of milk... I remember it fondly!!! (that's how I got addicted to Butterscotch!)

Well the main page says something along the lines of it doesn't have to be from the 80's just popular in the 80's, so I'm thinkin their safe. I don't know if they were popular in the 80s though =)

First time I tried it I was in 1st grade - which would be 1969. I remember it well because the lid came off while I was shaking and it went all over me, the table and floor!

I remember it from when I was a kid. And you're right, it was late 60's early 70's. The kind we had came in a yellow plastic shaker with 2 boxes of jello in it and the outside was painted by Peter Max. Don't know how I remember it so well.

Canadian Army field rations have something identical to this in them. Not sure who makes it though.

That's right. I remember it. I remember buying it in the grocery store in the late sixties. I lived in downtown Toronto. The vanilla flavor was my favorite. That made me hooked on making butterscotch pudding from Jello. By 1970, it was off the market.

Remember using this product in 1968 in Vietnam during the war. Stock would come into exchange and there would be lines of troops waiting to buy. If you were lucky enough to be near the head of the line and there was any left you would automatically be everyones buddy. It was hard to get a hold of. Guys would buy it by the case and they would sell out very quickly. Supply only arrived once or twice a month. It was a great treat.

i remember shake a pudding in the 60's. My father would dance around the kitchen singing shake a pudding while shaking it.

one of my favorited childhood memories was of me and my grandmother dancing around the living room with our packages of shake a puddin'. we would first start out singing the jingle but always finished up with my grandmother's favorite song by the four tops.... sugarpie, honeybunch!! lol. and yes... it was the late middle to late 60's, because my grandmother died in 1969.

I remember learning what 5 minutes meant. That's how long it took to set after you stopped shaking it...So, in a way I started to learn to tell time, by eating Shake-a- pudd'in.

There definitely was something put out in the eighties by Jello called Shake a Pudding. You added milk to the container with the jello powder and shook it for 3 min. I remember getting them.

Just asked my husband if he remembers this and he doesn't but I sure do...He is only one year younger so not sure why he never heard of it as we loved it in the late 60's and yes lid came off on me more than wished we could go back in time!!

I was hooked on the chocolate Shake A Pudding - I was mad when they stopped selling - wonder why they did? Does anyone remember Jello 1-2-3 ? That was a great one, too !
