Sweet, but I liked it sweet! Plenty of pineapple and coconut flavor. Because I used a 9-inch unbaked crust, I made the pie with SCANT 1 cup corn syrup, 2/3 cup sugar, and a dash of salt ~ all other ingredients were as written. I know now the 9-inch crust would have held the full recipe. Preheated my oven to 375F by mistake, then reduced to 350F when I placed the pie in the oven, and baked for exactly 45 minutes ~ wish I had checked it at 40 minutes.

We loved this. My kids had 2 slices each! *I* thought it was too sweet. I think I'd cut back karo to 3/4c & sugar to 1/2c next time? I used unsweetened coconut. It was very easy to mix up & pour into the pie crust. It's interesting how different people taste....I thought the pineapple flavor was perfect. I spooned it out of a 20oz can not sure how much liquid to use but it was perfect. Made fr Aussie Swap 9/12. Thank you!
Very light flavor. Surprisingly not too sweet. Yummy, but if I make it again I'll have to change the amount of pineapple and coconut so the flavors will be more pronounced. Maybe add a half cup of drained pineapple?
