I've been making this for years. I drain the pineapple and make a pie using a graham crust, it's really enough for two pies.

I am a little disappointed--thought this would be sweeter considering the ingredients. I will make this again and add 1/4 cup sugar with the cream cheese.

My whole family loves this. My kids get so excited when I make it! So quick and easy.

I didn't really care for it. I love cherries, but the pineapple ruined it for me.

Meh - it was okay, nothing special. I am not a pudding or Jello type of food eater, though - I just needed something MORE to go along with it.
