I brought this to work for a friend's birthday and it was delicious! I'll definitely make this again, especially with summer coming up. Everyone commented on how refreshing it was, and mandarin oranges always seem to be a favorite. The texture was light and creamy, like an orange pudding, and went down very easily!

This is a light, creamy, wonderful dessert/salad. I made it for Sunday dinner. Everyone raved about it. We decided that it could be made pretty low-fat, no/low sugar too, by using sugar-free jello and puddings and whipped topping. You know how you eat a wonderful dinner and then the cook says, "Wait, I have a nice dessert too!" ...and you groan because you just can't eat another bite. Well, this dessert was just perfect. No one complained at all. I garnished the servings with a dollup of whipped topping. When preparing, I found a wire whisk worked well for stirring things together. My husband wants me to try a variation using lime jello and pistachio pudding.

My husband went nuts over this recipe. He is a ceamsicle nut and I made it especially for him. Now there is none left to share with anyone else. He insists it be in the fridge from now on!I'd say it has his approval. I really like the texture myself it's a nice change from the all creamy things.

Very light, cool and refreshing summer dessert. I used fat free puddings, and sugar free jello; and fat free Cool Whip and it didn't taste "diet", if you know what I mean! :) Great snack or dessert for dieters.

Salad was good although we didn't like it as much as everyone else.

No photo I could take would do this recipe justice. . and, I tried.<br/><br/>It is creamy, smells and tastes like the old Popsicle brand '50/50 bars.' Even my picky boys loved it!<br/><br/>4 2 14 - update: I tried again using strawberry banana gelatin! WOW! I added in fresh diced bananas.. EXCELLENT! So, going to try w/other flavors!

Really love this salad! Made it for the first time today and made it a little healthier using sugar free and fat free pudding, sugar free jello, and lite cool whip. I always loved creamscicles as a kid, and this will become a summer favorite!

Made for Thanksgiving as a side and it was delicious, tastes just like a creamsicle! Can't wait to try with different fruit/jello combinations! Great texture and so easy to make. Looked so pretty on the table!
