My family likes it, and it's flavor actually reminds us of Hot Chocolate. Previously we often purchased Jello Instant Chocolate Fudge Pudding. And this isn't as deep chocolatey fudgey as that. Which caused my husband to say, "It needs more chocolate." I may need to play with it some to see if I can make it more like the Chocolate Fudge pudding.
