2. Can this dessert be saved? What's wrong with egg custard? It's good!

3. Yeah it was good, but the flavor was off

maybe I didn't use enough liquid when making it and the flavor was concentrated

4. I've been looking for Jello's egg custard and can't

find it anywhere but online, in bulk. Maybe I'll go get some or your stuff if it tastes the same. Was it Jello brand?

12. I bought the stuff and ate it.

To me it doesn't taste like cheesecake or custard or vanilla pudding. Today I ate some more and finally put my finger on it...candy corn! It tastes like candy corn from Halloween. That is certainly not a flavor I would buy if I had a choice.

5. Honestly, while you can get used to non fat and low or no sugar things,

the do not taste at all the same as the real thing. Don't try to fool yourself.

Some years ago I remember dieticians (and I'm convinced they are the devil's minions) would declare sanctimoniously that low or nof fat yogurt was indistinguishable from full fat sour cream. But they were wrong. Wrong. Wrong. The real problem is that dieticians apparently could not begin to taste the difference, and assumed that others couldn't either. And they were wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

I'm okay if you prefer low or non fat whatever. But don't EVER think that others can't tell the difference.

7. Whole milk Colombo yogurt 1980 was the greatest

with fruit on the bottom in a wax paper cup. Blueberry. Cherry vanilla.

Nothing's been the same ever since.

8. Imitations are always disappointing

so I tend to eat the real thing, just less of it.

I'm not all that fond of cheesecake, but if I were, it's go to a bakery or deli and get an individual portion on my birthday.

9. Did you use the recipe that uses greek yogurt and instant pudding? I make my own pudding mix

as I won't eat aspartame. I don't use cheesecake flavored homemade pudding mix but vanilla, Chocolate or Pumpkin...lemon etc. Mine came out pretty good but you need to cool it quite a while...I make it at night for the next day. The recipe I am referring to is a WW recipe. I have sometimes use cheesecake flavored greek yogurt (light) in the mix. I use Allulose sweetener...as swerve kills my stomach.

11. In the recipe I have you take pudding mx and add it to greek yougurt...I doctor it up usually...you

end with zero point cheese cake on WW. I posted my recipe below...I usually make my own pudding mix as I don't like aspartame. But this is the basic recipe...I have made Lemon, Pumpkin and Chocolate. And other folks are just fine with the pudding mix. If you make your own, you make the dry mix and add it to the Greek yogurt.



Also, chill it a really long time...at least 8 hours but 24 is better. And you can add a low calorie crust if you like, I don't.

Please note...this is the basic recipe I use...I did not invent it...the people who did are listed on this post...hope you like it. Also, it you don't mind aspartame...people love using the sugar free pudding mix...I just hate it...usually use a mix of allulose and real sugar...and sometimes a bit of stevia all natural. Swerve is very popular but I can't tolerate swerve...gives me a stomachache but most people do tolerate it well...Enjoy.
