I was looking for something quick on a hot day, so I made this since I had all the ingredients. It came out great, I followed other reviews and used half the sugar. However, I made it again yesterday and all it did was absorb the pudding and become a watery mess. Stubborn, and thinking I had made a mistake, I tried again today. SAME RESULTS! But, I figured out the problem is with the brand of instant pudding. The first time when it was awesome, I had Hershey's Instant pudding on hand. This time, I had Royal and it didn't come out. Definitely, check the pudding you are going to use if it doesn't start thickening at all while mixing don't try it! Let it thicken in the fridge a bit first. - 30 May 2018 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
