Jell-O is dropping 2 new pudding flavors for the first time in 5 years

Say “Jell-O” to the premiere gelatin and pudding brand’s newest flavors.

On April 23, Jell-O announced the introduction of two new refrigerated pudding flavors for the first time in more than five years: Churro Delicioso and Mango Sabroso — the latter happens to be the brand’s first fruit-forward pudding cup in its nearly 130-year history.

Here’s what to expect from the new pudding cups, both of which will be available nationwide starting in April:

  • Jell-O Churro Delicioso: This new Jell-O flavor is inspired by the booming popularity of churros, with actual cinnamon listed as one of its main ingredients.

  • Jell-O Mango Sabroso: As Jell-O’s first-ever fruit-forward refrigerated pudding cup, this flavor draws inspiration from “vibrant Hispanic flavors,” according to the brand.

The Kraft-Heinz-owned company says both Churro Delicioso and Mango Sabroso have zero sugar, like many of its other pudding flavors. Both come in individual packs of four, which Jell-O suggests is perfect for lunchboxes or quick at-home snacks.

The company notes these new flavors come on the heels of its 2023 rebrand, which saw a refreshed logo and packaging.

The brand’s logo has gone through numerous changes over the years, from its original Victorian design scheme to the simpler, bold typeface of today.

According to data by Statista, pudding consumption is on the rise with nearly 150.05 million Americans consuming pudding in 2020 and a projected increase to 152.86 million this year. As someone who is typically a non-pudding eater, I now count myself as part of that statistic.

I had the opportunity to try the new flavors for myself ahead of the announcement, and I have thoughts.

First up: Churro Delicioso. While it does accurately reflect the flavors of a churro, I felt myself daydreaming about the iconic texture this cup of pudding couldn’t provide — that fried, hot to the touch quality with its crunchy exterior. Obviously, this Jell-O snack can’t replicate that, but I found myself missing the feeling of getting cinnamon sugar all over my fingers while eating the long, fried stick (though, that may actually be a plus for people eating this on the go).

Next was the Mango Sabroso — the name means “tasty mango” in Spanish, in case you were wondering, and it’s actually an apt name. The snack has a creamy texture, and the flavor brings to mind mango nectar with a touch of not-too-sweet gummy mango candy. Lacking the tartness that mango yogurts have, this pudding allows the flavor of the fruit to shine quite nicely. It’s my favorite of the two.
