Jello shot cups are used to hold the Jello Shot rather shot classes. This allows the Jello Shots to be made in mass quantities and have a lot less clean-up. The plastic jello shot cups also have the advantage of being disposable. When your partyers get drunk they can crush cups on their forehead ala-Animal House.
Paper Jello Cups
Paper cups not may be the one of the more environmentally friendly options out there, but not the most practical. It’s easy to squeeze the Jello from the cups but if you’re not careful, the jello will leak out of the bottom. The main disadvantage with paper cups is that they can leak, leaving your fridge a mess and your cups rather soggy. If the environment is your main concern, Dixie Cups made with recycled paper are you best choice. Paper “Ketchup” cups also work (pictured).
Plastic Cups with Lids
Plastic Jello Cups are the most common way to serve and consume Jello Shots. The lids, while not necessary, help keep out dust and germs. The Jello will stick to the sides of the cup. There’s a certain technique to getting the Jello out of the cup. If not right, it can be very sexy (females only). If your tongue is flexible, you can loosen the Jello from the edges with your tongue and scoop the contents. This is the preferred method over squeezing the cup which usually results in a big mess and lost jello.
