"Nice way to use up that half can of pumpkin. I did not have soy milk, so used skim. Maybe just a little to much spice for me and I generally like these types of spices."

"Ugh. This was not a chiffon, more like a thick pudding. With overly-chemical sweetness which is due to using a 4-serving pudding mix for only 2 servings I would guess. I would rather make my own pudding from scratch. I will not make this again."

"This recipe was very good. My son loved it. I did make it again to use the rest of the pumpkin in the can. I didn't use the vanilla wafers. We put a dab of non-dairy topping on instead."

"The high sodium is from the instant pudding mix. 1 (1/2 cup serving) has 300 mg sodium. Since this recipe is only 2 servings, it is actually 2 servings of pudding, plus whatever sodium is in the pumpkin, soy milk & vanilla wafers.

Either the # of servings is wrong, or this is not really a healthy desert."

"I have not made it because it seems high in sodium. Why?"
