Best quarterback, best coach, best home stadium.

All these debates are making me hungry.

But the debates continue even when you head to your local dessert aisle, because you can now buy a Jell-O molding kit with the logo of your favorite college football team.

So that means we have a new argument on our hands: Which Jell-O molding kit featuring a Big Ten team comes with the best flavor of Jell-O?

There are five Big Ten schools available — at least available on Amazon — in Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa and Wisconsin.

As you might imagine, the schools are paired with flavors based on team colors. This gives a huge advantage to the red schools, as everyone prefers red Jell-O, right? The Buckeyes and Badgers each come with strawberry-flavored Jell-O. That just trounces Michigan and Iowa, which come with lemon-flavored Jell-O, which I don't think I've ever seen anyone actually ingest.

The wild card is the Spartans, whose Jell-O package comes with lime-flavored Jell-O.

So go whip up some Jell-O, go through the taste test, prepare your arguments and place you bets. The Big Ten gelatin dessert-off is on!
