Want to know the best part?  I stocked up on Coca-Cola® Mini cans while shopping at Sam’s Club over the weekend so I can make these jello shots for our weekly football parties. Sam’s Club makes it so easy to shop for all everything we need when hosting a get-together.  I especially love their club pickup.  I can order everything online and they do the shopping for me.  This is such a huge time saver!
