"I think next time I'll try using low fat yogurt instead of sour cream to cut down the calories/fat/cholestrol and then maybe my husband will eat it. When he found out it was made with sour cream I think his heart made his taste buds say no way. I loved the taste, though, and so did my 4 and almost 3 year olds. Oh, it was also really good with some added strawberries!"
