This is absolutely delicious! Definitely a keeper. I have made it with strawberry and it works well also.

Made this for a Thanksgiving dinner and it was delicious. I used the berry blue jello. I think this would be great with either strawberry or cherry pie filling and jello. I plan to try those in the future.

I actually changed it to strawberry gelatin and strawberry pie filling, and it was great, a huge hit with everyone.

I have been making this for years. The only change I make is that I use berry blue jello and just one large box. I have also used knox gelatin and grape juice for a nephew that could not have the artificial colors and flavors in jello.

I like the concept but it was just too sweet.

Makes more sense to me to use "blueberry flavor Jello gelatin" rather than grape. I also use the blueberry Jello to make icing for blueberry cakes.....much better than grape for these applications.

Have made this jello for years using sugar-free raspberry jello. It is always a big hit!

It was okay. Too sweet. I probably won't make it again.

Loved the topping. The jello salad was way to sweet for me.
