1 1/2 cups water, divided
2/3 cup sugar
1 (3-ounce) package lime jello

Fun Fact: The people of Salt Lake City, Utah, consume more Jell-O per capita than any other city in the world. In January 2001, the Utah Senate declared green Jell-O the official state snack of Utah. And to celebrate, an annual Jell-O Week was proclaimed.
