This was much too sweet for us. I used a 15oz can of mandarin oranges, mostly drained, Real Lemon bottled juice, and Cool Whip. I also used quite a bit more than 6 wafers. Though the oranges were partially drained, this was very runny and thin-textured. Next time, I'll use the smaller can of oranges undrained as per directions, but I will reduce the lemon juice and only use about 5oz sweetened condensed milk, making up the volume with whipped cream or maybe even sour cream. I will probably make this again with these modifications.
