  1. The recipe has definitely changed over the years. I think it has HFCS instead of sugar, and some other things have been changed. I noticed this a few years ago when I was revisiting ot for a review I was writing. I think the new version is mediocre at best, and the new additional flavors are terrible. They all have artificial tastes. I like a few of the other cream liqueurs much, much better.
