There are a seemingly endless variations to the sets one could collect. The main set is a set of 16 "Trading Cards" that would be cut off the back of the "Royal" dessert boxes. Flavors include Vanilla, Chocolate, Lemon Pie Filling, Vanilla Tapioca, Chocolate Tapioca, Orange-Coconut pudding, Orange, Custard, Lemon, Lime and Pineapple.
