    It's ok

    G Kirk from ,

    I used a little bit of the pure vanilla extract based on the recipe. I never had to use pure vanilla extract and was surprised with the intensity of the aroma & the flavor in the pudding. The pudding itself tastes a little heavy in the flavor. The fruit cocktail is definitely needed to mellow the strong flavor of the vanilla. Overall it was a good desert but I would probably use a regular vanilla food flavoring.
