"I would love to make this for the summer, but 114 servings? How can I half it? And, please, mnjammer, how did you use fruit cocktail, drained, or undrained?

And, please,"

"I want to make this recipe, but I am allergic to oranges. Do you think pineapple juice would work instead of orange juice. There are many other fruits I can choose instead of mandarin oranges such as peaches or apricots. But I'm a little puzzled as to what juice to use. I would appreciate hearing from others what they think."

"These delicious fruit cups are enough for a crowd. They're easy & quick. I used fruit cocktail plus bananas instead of the pineapple tidbits. Great for a hot summer day."
