I had made a similar recipe before with only the black cherry Jell-O and the can of dark sweet cherries; we enjoyed it the old way, too. This is even nicer! Did not change a thing except to use sugar-free Jell-O and diet cola, being diabetic. Thank you!

I've been enjoying this kind of jello salad for many, many years, but always from someone else's kitchen, so making this was a treat for me! Followed your directions right down the line, & everything came together so well! Great tasting jello! [Made & reviewed as a tagged bonus in Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #14, Mar 08]
