My grandmother used to make a dish almost exactly like this that I absolutely loved so I'm very glad I came across this recipe. This is a good base but it needs a little help. As another reviewer said, it does have a chemical taste. I think that's because it's way too much pudding mix and not enough cool whip. The cool whip needs to be doubled, as with the fruit cocktail. Also, I reccommend not draining the fruit cocktail as the pudding mix will thicken it anyways. I also added mini marshmallows and coconut to mine and topped with a maraschino cherry. DB ate it all up and demanded heaping seconds! I will keep this recipe around but will have to keep tweaking it to get the right consistency.
