Just the right size for 1 or 2 people. I stirred in some chocolate chips into 1/2 of the pudding and had chocolate also.

The flavor was spot on. I really liked that. My only problem was that you didn't specify what variety of milk to use and I only had skim on hand. I used it and, for the most part it was fine but it was a bit too runny. Next time I'll try 2% or whole.
