    This tasted horrible. I used low heat and the mixture still curdled a bit. This is nothing like a smooth, creamy pudding--it is like a very firm jello, with curdled bits in it. Taste was flat too. I will not make this again, was a waste of my ingredients.  -  08 Dec 2015  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
