I also tried calling their 800 number (1-800-323-0768) but as it is
the day after Thanksgiving, the Kraft employees are "enjoying the
Holiday with their families" according to the recording.
There is a person called the "Jell-O-phile" who has a really fun
website with lots of information about Jell-O. ONe of their FAQ's was
about Jell-O 1-2-3 and according to her answer, the product was still
being made in 1996:
"Is Jell-O 1-2-3 still available?
Jell-O 1-2-3 was still in current production as of January 1996,
albeit not appearing on every supermarket shelf. You could try calling
Kraft General Foods at the number on the box (1-800-431-1001) to find
out a market in your area that carries this product.

She also offers a recipe to try:
"How do you prepare Jell-O 1-2-3?
After adding the boiling water, the mixture was blended for 30
seconds, then blended at high speed for 1 minute, then add a cup of
ice water and blend on high for 1 more minute. You fill each glass
HALF FULL, then refill the glasses completely in the same order. It
"automatically" separates into 3 layers upon chilling. Basically they
call this gelatin with 2 toppings (on the box). Molding this product
is NOT recommended."
