The Jello size reference of 6 oz is wrong. Jello is sold in 0.6 oz and 0.3 oz sizes.

This is one of my favorite jello salad recipes. I do omit the Maraschino cherries and the pecans. Last year for Christmas Eve dinner I made this and accidently forgot to put in the 2nd container of strawberries and no none noticed and it was still great!
