light and delicious. exactly what i wanted. i added strawberries. And I made a mistake and got cook n' serve vanilla pudding. And not enough.. so i had to end up with one layer of the cook n' serve pudding and one layer of the vanilla instant pudding that my mom had already that was past its "best used by" date. it was still delicious and no one died.:-D Read More
