I made this 13 years ago to take to a Thanksgiving dinner and my family has asked for it every year since. Good and easy.

Quick and easy to make, but the flavor was fake and processed. I might consider making it for a 70's theme party, but not a special occassion.

Super easy, and tastes great. People really seem to either love it or hate it when I make it. More often than not they love it though! Thanks.
