In my eyes, there is always a cause for celebration & life is just a whole lot more fun when you find ways to incorporate festive activities into everyday life! With holidays coming up like Halloween and Thanksgiving, school parties to attend, and play dates to be had, I thought it would be super fun to create a Troll themed treat that everyone will love with one of our favorite drinks, Tampico! This tropical gelatin snack is perfect for whatever event or gathering you are planning and is sure to bring a smile to every child’s face!

I love creating something special, but I am also all about practical and simple activities that any mama can do. That’s why I am so excited to share with you this DIY Trolls Gelatin Treat.


Here’s what we did:

  1. Made Orange flavored gelatin and substituted the cold water for Tampico Tropical Punch. (This adds such a delicious and tropical flavor to the orange gelatin!)
  2. Pour into a rectangular pan that you will have room to create shapes in.
  3. Let set in fridge (Take note that using juice drinks instead of water will make set time a bit longer. Having it set overnight would be ideal.)
  4. Once set, take it out & begin cutting the shape you want!


Since there is time to wait from the initial recipe creation to the end product this is the perfect time to get into the Trolls spirit! We have been so inspired by Tampico, not only with their Trolls partnership getting you into the spirit but also because of their interactive Flavor Hunt on Instagram! With the new season of the DreamWorksTV’s animated series “Trolls: The Beat Goes On” on Netflix and Tampico’s partnership with the series, there is so much fun to be had! Be sure to keep an eye out for the Troll wrapped six-packs in stores (like we have here!) In addition, participants in the Flavor Hunt can enter the sweepstakes by finding the Tampico six-packs scattered throughout Troll Village, for a chance to win a $100 Netflix gift card.

My kids had the best time singing the songs, coloring some Trolls, and making and eating the Tampico flavored treat! This would be the perfect activity for an afterschool play date or a weekend party. Gather your friends and family and challenge each other to the Flavor Hunt & winner gets to host the Troll’s binge watching night on Netflix! I know I am ready to get playing!
