    Used only half of the strawberry gelatin, stawberries instead of peaches, skipped the pineapple. Wonderful, light dessert. Everyone loved it.  -  06 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used strawberries instead of peaches (as suggested by a few others). It was easy to make and everyone loved it. Thanks, Mel!  -  12 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very quick and easy. Great to use different fruit, puddings or gelatins.  -  22 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
