    Will the jello set with the pineapple in it?
    The packages I have say it won't set up if you add fresh or frozen pineapple, kiwi, ginger root, papaya, figs or guava.

    Just checking....

      I use the canned pineapple- drain it if you have trouble with jello setting up. I do not use the mint.
