"I think the Jell-O should have been a little more cooler because the pudding didn't blend in well. However, the taste was awesome!"

"I usually don't like orange-flavored things, especially Jell-O, but I just couldn't get enough of these. I made them twice last October and am already getting requests for this year."

"I have served these to lots of different people and they always get rave reviews. They are far better than regular finger jello! And so easy."

"I made this for a large family gathering and people were not impressed. My kids were even reluctant to try them. I didn't try one because I don't like jello at all, so I can't tell you my opinion, other than they did not go over well and I won't be making these again."

"I have made this twice, once for Halloween and again for Valentine. The group enjoyed it so much that they asked me for the recipe. For Valentine I used Strawberry Jello in place of Orange gelatin and used heart shaped cookie cutters instead of pumpkin shaped cookie cutters. This is a very refreshing dessert."
