"I love this banana pudding. It is so easy and a perfect potluck dessert. I never bring home any leftovers!"

"Easy to make but way, way too sweet for my taste. I will not make this again. I couldn't finish mine."

"I prefer to use either real whipping cream or Redi-Whip.

Cool-Whip is made with oil and I can taste a difference."

"I think they're talking about something like Cool Whip."

"I don't think it makes any difference. It doesn't call for a certain size package, but rather 2 cups. So 2 cups of either kind (or real whipped cream) should produce the same dessert. Good luck!"
