I ate some sort of multi-layered, rainbow Jell-O-like snack once. What was it? Where can I find it in Boston or NYC?

My friend's Vietnamese parents bought them at an Asian grocery store in Arizona. They came in generic plastic containers, as if the store made them, with several "cakes" per container. The cakes were small, multi-layered, and rainbow, with tapered bottoms and fluted edges. You could eat them with your hands, and they were kept cold.
Any ideas as to what they are/were? They were amazing.
