One of the local papers has been running an annual Haiku contest, to be awarded just before Thanksgiving  where you'll probably encounter a jello-salad of some sort. 

What you need to know. Utah is a disproportionate consumer of jello. http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2010/03/jell-o-love-a-guide-to-mormon-cuisine/37929/  And we're willing to make fun of it. 

My personal favorite, which only got honorable mention is:

Oh hello, Jell-O
Behind fragrant old ladies
At Chuck-A-Rama.

Chuck-A-Rama is a 50 year old buffet restaurant here in Utah. But there are many other good ones over the years but I can't find links for every year they've done it.
