I was delighted to see the in my inbox! My mother made this for years, but the recipe was lost. It is the same recipe and I thank you for sending it out. My family was totally addicted to this pie. It is excellent!

I made this years ago for my family and family gatherings. However, my recipe called for "lemon". (On occasion I would sub in chocolate instead). The lemon was cool, light and refreshing. For you lemon lovers out there, give it a try.

We made this growing up in NC, but with butterscotch pudding (we called it "Butterscotch Dessert"). It was one of my favorite non-chocolate desserts, but I like the chocolate version too!

I live in the opposite end of the country from Louisiana, but have been making this for years. We've always known it as Chocolate Yummy. Normally I tend to not make desserts involving pudding mix and frozen whipped topping, but sometimes you just need to, and children love this. I'm pretty sure that my mother originally received the recipe from my Texas aunt.

This is the best. My family loves it. Didn't change a thing. Thank you, Elizabeth, my family all lived in Thibodaux for many many years. Last name was Tardo, do you know any of them. I believe they are all gone now and one of my cousins lives in Kenner and one in Chalmette...
