Hawaiian Haystacks?

I was perusing a forum I occasionally frequent and read a woman's desperate cry for help. She was having a holiday party for 250 guests and was serving this dish called "Hawaiian Haystacks" and needed to know how much food to buy and prepare for such a large number of people.

After finding the recipe online, I immediately was grateful that this person was not inviting me to her party. What a nasty mid-century convenience food recipe! This version particularly cracked me up: Hawaiian Haystacks. Love the admonishment not to use canned peas, five lines above "maraschino cherries" and "pineapple chunks (canned)." What's the diff? It's all going to be nasty.

Yes, I am a food snob. And proud of it!
