It's really good.
My daughter makes it. We ate it with angel food cake and that seemed like a pretty good combination.

Has your daughter ever tried it with fresh oranges? Hard to find canned mandarin oranges that are not from China, sometimes. And the Texas valley (South Texas) produces awesome fresh oranges and grapefruit, and I'd love to use a fresh orange, when in they're in season.

I'd love any other variations on this, she might have, such as Strawberry Jello and fresh strawberries, etc.

Thanks for sharing the recipe!! Next trip to the store, I'll have to grab the ingredients!

Nope, just the Mandarin oranges and to be honest, she made it once but was such a big hit with the family I thought I needed to share it. The original recipe called for all diet ingredients but she's against the artificial sweeteners for her two kids so we used the standard ingredients I listed.

I'm guessing other variations you mentioned would be great too. I like the strawberry idea but my personal favorite is cherries so I might try to talk her into that variation.
