One-Fifth of Young Drinkers Report Consuming ‘Jello Shots'

About one in five underage youths reported consuming alcoholic jello shots in the past 30 days, and [...]those youths were more likely to binge drink, consume more alcohol, and to have been involved in physical fights related to their drinking than their peers who did not consume jello shots, a study led by a School of Public Health researcher shows.

In the study, published in the Journal of Child and Adolescent Substance Abuse, Michael Siegel, professor of community health sciences, and colleagues from Johns Hopkins University and Fiorente Media Inc. of Boston used a national sample of 1,031 youths, ages 13 to 20, to assess past 30-day consumption of jello shots.
