"I made this sherbet for my birthday. I liked it so much that the next I hardy consumed anything else. By the end of that day I had lost my fondness for the dessert."

"I made this sherbet yesterday (followed the recipe to a "t") and my whole family was disappointed. :o( It looked amazing, but it didn't taste very good. It wasn't easy to make, so I too was disappointed with the lack-luster taste. I expected a little more "zing" of flavor...I think that it was muted by the condensed milk. ? Won't bother with this one again."

"This was a very good sherbet. I served it to a group of ladies on our game day and everyone enjoyed it. We all felt it would have been better without the chocolate chips. The next time I make it, I will omit the semisweet chocolate chips, reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup and add another can of sweetened condensed milk."

"Made this over the 4th of July weekend and left out the chocolate chips. It was raved about by all ages 3 - 60+. I've been told it will need to be brought again!"

"Used 10.5 ounces of black cherry soda (natural organic with juice) and less sugar. Turned out wonderful"

"My husband and I really liked it. Leftover ice cream does not freeze well, it becomes icy. Next time I will try to cut back the recipe so I don't have any left."

"This has a GREAT flavor but I can't get it to freeze. I am followed the directions exactly and I am NOT using diet soda. I started with an ice cream freezer and it didn't freeze. Now I have put it in the freezer. It has been in there 2 hours and isn't more then a slush."
