"A very "retro " something that came out of the '70's. It tasted pretty good the first evening after I made it, but got a little watery by the next day. It was sweeter than I like, and there was more pudding/whipped topping than there was fruit. Not a terrible recipe, but I won't be making it again."

"I don't like fruit cocktail, I added drained pineapple tidbits instead."
