A Spicy Pumpkin Pie Filler But May Cause Heartburn

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Jello Pumpkin Spice instant pudding:

Last year I bought several boxes of the Pumpkin Spice instant pudding to use to make no-bake pumpkin pies. The were only .65 cents a box so it was a deal and I could put off having to make baked pumpkin pies for another week.

This is made the same was as other instant puddings; two cups of milk then beat until blended. If you are using this in a pie shell or for a dessert, use a half cup less milk so it is firmer. You can also mix some whipped topping with it to make a lighter fluffier type of pudding.

I don't make this more than a couple hours in advance of serving it; there is milk fat separation that happens and you can end up with it getting watery even if you add less milk than what the box calls for.

The first time I tried this I loved the taste of it but it gave me heartburn that was tough to get rid of. I think it was the combination of ginger and cinnamon that caused it; the overall taste is spicy so you are going to want to sample this before you go crazy with it and start using it in a ton of desserts.

I haven't seen a sugar free version of this but when I called Kraft, the parent company, they said that they were planning on adding one to their product line up in the near future.

If you try this and get heartburn or it comes off as being too spicy, try adding about a half cup of whipped topping to it but if you are going to do that you have to use less milk or it will end up watered down and hard to serve.

Pumpkins

By 

from Syracuse, New York

Comments about Jello Pumpkin Spice instant pudding:

I love pudding. It reminds me of a light custard. I also love pumpkin pie. This Jell-O Pumpkin Pie Flavored Pudding Mix was a great invention on their part. It was even better than I had initially expected. It has just the right amount of thickness. The taste of the pudding mix is somewhat like pumpkin pie and also somewhat different too. The similarities for me were the taste of the pudding. I could taste slightly spiced cinnamon under tones. The cinnamon spice was very light and airy though. Much less intense than from what you would expect of a pumpkin pie. It is way more fluffy than pumpkin pie as well. It has a smooth, creamy and heavily crave able taste. It's consistency is amazingly satisfying as well. What I enjoyed the most about the Jell-O Pumpkin Spice Instant Pudding was that it helped me stick to my healthier eating plan during the holidays. It is a very satisfying swap for the higher calorie pumpkin based desserts that are popular around the holiday season. This is an extra tasty treat that I love to eat. If you enjoy pumpkin pie, I suggest you try it.

Pumpkin spice

By

Comments about Jello Pumpkin Spice instant pudding:

I don't normally purchase pudding just to make and eat as a dessert or snack but I probably would with jello brand instant pumpkin spice pudding. I originally bought this to go in a dessert for thanksgiving and I was so thoroughly impressed with the intense flavor that I purchased it again just to eat. I made it again just plain and it was so good my family loved it! The flavor is good it's not really a spice. You can taste the pumpkin and cinnamon in it and it is very sweet and scrumptious. I would recommend it to anyone who likes pudding.

Jello Pumpkin Spice Instant Pudding is Greattttt !!!!!

By 

from Rocky Mount, NC

Comments about Jello Pumpkin Spice instant pudding:

I have never cared much for pumpkin but my son loves it! I saw this Jello Pumpkin Spice pudding in the grocery store and I had to try it for him. You know we just love doing that sort of thing for our children. Well it was a real hit.

The first time I made the Pumpkin Spice Mousse from the recipe on the box.It was delicious and just plain felt good on the tongue. That sold me, now I like Pumpkin too.Since then I made a pie and just pudding. They both turned out well. The directions for all three desserts are on the box and easy to make. Best of all,there is no baking.

This is a seasonal item so I was dissapointed about that,but I went right back to the store and stocked up! It does have an experation date on the end of the box so I just had to watch that.This was Thanksgiving,2009 and I bought so much that I still had enough for Christmas 2010! It turned out just as good a year after I bought it.  When I got so much of it I put it in a zip lock bag-still in the package it came in but also in the bag. Not sure if that made any difference but it was good.

cool and creamy pumpkin spice

By 

from Northern, FL

Comments about Jello Pumpkin Spice instant pudding:

I am not a real fan of instant puddings but Jello's seasonal release, **Pumpkin Spice **has made me a believer. The pudding tastes like a cool, creamy pumpkin pie.

As with all Jello instant puddings, Pumpkin Spice whips up in two minutes. Once mixed, pour the mixture into four individual serving dishes. [makes four- 1/2 cup servings]

**How to use it:**

Simply add two cups of milk to the mix and whip with a wire whip or hand mixer for a quick dessert. This pudding is good by itself or makes a great pumpkin pie filling. It can also be used in a variety of recipes including the delicious layered cheesecake.

**Tip:**

I have learned that any of the instant pudding work best if made with whole milk- anything less makes a watery pudding that just doesn't cut it.

**Bottom Line:**

I wish I had known how much I was going to like this product so I could have bought more. I want to try the Pumpkin Mousse recipe that was on the box.

**Ingredients:**

Sugar, Modified Food Starch Contains Less than 2% of Natural and Artificial Flavor, Cinnamon, Ginger, Salt, Disodium Phosphate and Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate, Mono- and Diglycerides, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, Caramel Color, Artificial Color and BHA preservative.

Jello Pumpkin Spice Instant Pudding and Pie Filling Yummmmee

By 

from Mason, MI

Comments about Jello Pumpkin Spice instant pudding:

I found Pumpkin Spice Instant Pudding and Pie Filling at the grocery store last week by Jello of course and since it is a limited seasonal release I grabbed it up. I was craving some pumpkln pie since Thanksgiving is just a week away and thought this would be a great alternative for a snack. Oh my......was I pleasantly surprised. I seriously love this stuff! It is very close to the taste of pumpkin pie . I whipped it up and crumbled some graham crackers on top and sat down for a new delight! I have to say that the other three boxes I bought for making a mousse might not make it to Thanksgiving! In fact, I can think of a lot of ways to use this and wish it wasnt just available during the fall season. Adding this to a spice cake recipe would be fantastic. Enjoy!
