Cin's "Mandarine-Pineaple Fluff"

Straws Kitchen


I had not made this since my own Children were growing up...until I started having Grandchildren.
It was always one of my Childrens favorite dessert-salads.
I also made it in strawberry-banana, raspberry, etc.
They loved every flavor of dry jello I'd use and different kinds of fruits added. So do my Grandchildren.
They liked me to put it into a baked and cooled pie crust for special occasions.

I'm sure you have probably made this lots of times, and maybe forgotten about it like me...try making it again, and rekindle the memory!!!
