"Mine turned out runny and never set up. Does anyone know why? I used all brand-name products and no generics. I made sure everything was drained thoroughly. I was disappointed by the outcome."

"I make this all the time! It is delicious and versatile! It is enough to fill 2 graham cracker pie crusts; perfect for the holidays! Change the flavor by using different flavors of jello and corresponding fruit! (This recipe does not call for instant tapioca) A family favorite!"

"Sodium total seems very low; 1 pkg of 1 oz vanilla instant has 300 mg; your recipe claims a total of 142 mg. I didn't use the whipped cream to save calories. Need clarification if the jello pudding are sugar free?"
