    I have used this recipe for the last 36 years, was given to me at my bridal shower. I omit the juice off the pineapple as it tends to be too sweet. As we are diabetic, I use 1/4 cup brown sugar substitute. Sometimes I add sliced hot dog to it also. I usually get asked to bring this to pot-luck dinners, make it for camping etc. My husband loves it cold.  -  29 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This was fantastic. We also used crushed pineapple. It was a bit thin. I think it could have used less syrup from the canned pineapple, but it was still great. Even my VERY picky 5 year old liked it. It's also great the next day.  -  27 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Great, my family loved it. Easy to make and wonderful to eat. I made a double recipe and used crushed pineapple for one of the cans. We think that the flavor is better with the crushed but also like to see the chunks. Use both.  -  24 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
