    Easy to make but way, way too sweet for my taste. I will not make this again. I couldn't finish mine.

    I prefer to use either real whipping cream or Redi-Whip.Cool-Whip is made with oil and I can taste a difference.

    I think they're talking about something like Cool Whip.

    I don't think it makes any difference. It doesn't call for a certain size package, but rather 2 cups. So 2 cups of either kind (or real whipped cream) should produce the same dessert. Good luck!
