    It's good and I will definitely make it again. The directions for preparing the pudding mix confused me and I made the pudding with the milk and then realized I should have just used the pineapple juice. I mixed the pineapple juice into about half of the pudding and used it that way. Worked find and everyone seemed to like it.
