I thought this was excellent, although I couldn't find instant tapioca pudding so used the cook and serve kind which worked fine. The second time I made it I omitted the pineapple as I thought it gave good flavor but an odd texture. I used the same recipe again but instead of orange jello and mandarine oranges I substituted strawberry jello and frozen strawberries and it was delicious. I did not have any problems with either one of them setting up properly. I did stir them once while they were setting up as the fruit sunk to the bottom a bit at first. Love it!

This was so yummy! I took it to a church potluck and everybody loved it, even my 10 year old who normally doesn't like jello salads! This is really sweet, so be prepared for that. I used fruit in its own juice, but put in some marshmallows, which might have made it sweeter. You can't tell there's tapioca in here, so don't let that scare you away. The marshmallows gave it a little texture which we all liked, and I'd consider adding some chopped walnuts or pecans if you like nuts. Anyway, it was really good, and it'd be easy to sit and eat a bowl of it!***I just made this for the 3rd time (for Easter) and couldn't find instant Tapioca anywhere, so used the Jello cook and serve, and it was just as good. If I hadn't added the marshmallows (about 2-3 cups)it might've been too runny, but w/marshmallows it was perfect. As for the reviewer that said hers was too runny, I wonder if she forgot to drain her fruit? That extra fruit juice would definitely make it too runny!

I made this for my parents using sugar free jello, pudding and cool whip... since they are both diabetic. They loved it and insist that I make it for all family get-to-gethers. The great thing about sugar free cool whip is that is never breaks down... it's always creamy even after a couple of days.
