    Sounds good... but with the sugary ingredients & the fat-free ingredients listed, I would be really careful in reading the labels to make sure you're not eating a ton of HFCS or hydrogenated oils (fake fats) that are so awful for your body. Give me real sugar & real fat any day (& smaller portions!) - 3/21/11

    The only way to make this better would be to add chocolate chips (of course, it wouldn't be as low-cal). Delicious!!!! - 3/23/07

    We made this for Thanksgiving and it was pretty good but the bottom set a lot firmer than the top. Used some chocolate gluten free cookies and butter for the crust so the whole family could eat it. - 11/30/08

    This sounds good. I am pretty sure there are things like non-alcoholic Creme de Menthe. Is there one for Creme de Cacao? Many of my friends cannot have anything that comes close to alcohol. - 3/21/11
