    I made this and was very nicely asked to never make it again!

    This had no flavor. No one liked it at the party I brought it to. It looked pretty, but unfortunately that wasn't enough.

    Yuck, this is a waste of good ingredients. The flavor was bland and the texture was unpleasant. I looked up the recipe for pineapple icebox cake in the original knox cookbook and wow, what a world of difference.
