Remember when we were little kiddos and Finding Nemo first came out? Our only problem was figuring out when mom would go to the grocery store so we could buy more Jell-O. Good times.

Thirteen years later, we may have loads of problems now, but it’s always fun to get a little nostalgic and have Jell-O as a young adult. It’s also acceptable to still get excited for a new Pixar movie, because who doesn’t? Nowadays, we love our jigglin’ Jell-O with a good splash of alcohol, so what better way to celebrate the arrival of Finding Dory than with themed Jell-O shots? There’s even fish-shaped gummies so you can pretend that Nemo and Dory are floating around in each booze-filled square.
