I have made this recipe for 20 years for family get togethers have not ever made a change to the ingredients it comes out perfect every time and is one of my all time favorites. Adding a 6 oz. package of jello would not be good it would be gritty and would not set I had a friend that did that......why? Don't know there is hardly 1/4 c. of juice in a can of pineaple this size. I worried the first time I made it that there wouldn't be enough liquid. BE SURE TO NOT ADD THE WHOLE CAN OF 7up it will be runny this is too much liquid. Love this recipe! Oh and all jello recipes should be done the day before you need it don't make this in the morning and think it will be ready in the afternoon. I never do that you are playing Russian Roullette. (SP?)

I'd rate it 0 if I could. I figured you can't go wrong with jello. It was pure sugar. Take a look at the recipe again - it calls for melting marshmellows in soda and adding pineapple juice - no water at all. The cranberry salads are excellent. I'm sticking with those! Read More

I haven't tried this recipe because it doesn't sound right to me but I may be wrong. The recipe calls for 1 3 ounce package of jello 8 ounce cream cheese and 2 cups marshmellows melted in the 7 ounces of carbonated beverage add the 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple including the juice then at the end your going to add 1 cup of whipped topping. It seems like this recipe is calling for too much liquids for a 3 ounce package of jello I think if I do make this recipe I will use a 6 ounce package of jello. nutnbedder2do Read More

This salad was a hit at Thanksgiving! I personally don't like nuts so I left them out. I added mandarin oranges just to make it a little more fruity. Read More
