This tastes pretty close to the jello 1 2 3 made up until 1996. Although I have one suggestion. To get better layering fill your dessert cup half full very quickly, then slowling fill it. Also, I only got 2 good size servings with the package. If you used very small dixie cups you could possibly get 4 servings. You can also try this with lite jello and lite whipped cream. It makes for a really good low calorie snack.

I doubled this recipe to supposidly make 20 servings for an 80's party I'm hosting tonight, and I started pouring the Jello into the cups, and came up with only 4 8-oz glasses worth, so at most 8 servings. Other than that, it seems to be working well
