I grew up on this stuff. We had it for every holiday or family event. Most frog eye salads call for mini marshmallows. I don't like them because they get soggy and sticky. It is funny how many people have never heard of this salad, but once they have it, they are hooked. Since I can not find acini di pepe pasta here in California, I am forced to beg friends or family members to send it to me from out of state.
