GFS (Gordon Food Service) carries RBC in qts., look in the freezer section.

Sam's Club sells it by the bucket in the bakery dept. - you have to ask for it.

Sugarcraft will ship it:

Pastry Pride is almost identical to Rich's Bettercreme and might be more readily available in your area.

Thankyou so much! I think I will ask at Sam's next time.

We don't have a Sam's Club here, do you think Costco might have it?

mconrey Posted 12 Mar 2007 , 3:18am

I saw a large carton of Pastry Pride at Costco the other day. It was in the frozen section between the ice cream and the frozen fruit.

Also, if you have Smart & Final near you, they sell both Rich's and Pastry Pride.

If its in quarts is it liquid and frozen..like milk or like cool whip and already whipped?.

superstar Posted 12 Mar 2007 , 3:22am

Thanks so much. We have only a Costco, I will look there. We are very limited here.

When you buy it in quarts - it's the liquid version. So you have to whip it up yourself. Saves on space and it's not too hard to whip up. You just thaw in the fridge overnight and whip it up for about 5 minutes in a cold bowl.

slb1956 Posted 12 Mar 2007 , 4:35am

Is it already stablized..Rich's or do you have to add something..also do you have to add PS or Regular sugar to it?. or is it already sweetened.

NoMoreWhiteCake Posted 16 Mar 2007 , 9:31pm

No need to add anything, just whip.

jescapades Posted 8 May 2007 , 1:36pm

is there a way to make it chocolate? i can't wait to try it!

ncbert Posted 8 May 2007 , 3:09pm

I live in Canada and I have been to both Costco and Sam's. Costco wouldn't sell me anything,and thought it was a strange request(???). Sam's will sell me Dawn's whipped topping and buttercream....It is in cartons frozen and I had to get 4 of them(2 litre cartons). The man at the counter was very chatty and gave me a weath of information ,even let me and by BF sample it...MMM

Anybody use the Dawn's version of the whipped topping? I assume works the same as Rich's.

JanH Posted 10 May 2007 , 5:29am

mconrey, Rich's sells Real-Whip topping which is their version of Cool-Whip topping and comes in a similar looking little tub.

The Rich's Bettercreme comes in 1 qt. milk cartons (frozen) or large buckets (frozen or thawed).

Here's a thread that has photos of the products:

lilypie Posted 21 May 2007 , 1:29pm

I have also tried using Hershey's chocolate syrup with good results. Light and chocolatey... i get mine in liquid form at Cash n Carry, so i just add it before it is done whipping, so it doesn't get too strange.. (read: stiff and crumbly)
I tried adding it afterwards, and made the ugliest cake that ever was! but it tasted yummy! i tried adding water, and it didn't work. The only thing that helped bring it back to the correct consistancy was adding more liquid.

bobwonderbuns Posted 21 May 2007 , 1:35pm

I make "fake mousse" fillings out of the Rich's bettercreme for my cakes which need to sit out all day and where a heavy cream filling would pose a health risk. If it's doctored correctly, it's really quite tasty!

Wendoger Posted 21 May 2007 , 1:44pm

...do you add whatever flavor fo pudding for doctoring bobwonderbuns?

bobwonderbuns Posted 21 May 2007 , 1:47pm

Well, for my lemon mousse I whip 2/3 quart Vanilla Rich's bettercreme with 1 small box of instant lemon pudding, 2 tsp Vanilla and 1 tsp lemon oil (not extract.) Whip to soft peaks then add the remaining bettercreme and whip briefly to have a mousse texture.

Wendoger Posted 21 May 2007 , 1:54pm

mmmmm.....that sounds good. I was just looking at those Lorann oils on-line. The way everyone is always talking about the 'creme bouquet' I thought I would try it.
I found the cheapest price, 8 oz for 3.99.
Are these the oils you use?

bobwonderbuns Posted 21 May 2007 , 1:57pm

I use the Boyajian Oils sold at NY Cake. http://www.nycake.com/viewProd.asp?guid=lje460830&;cid=&sp=1&lp=1&sql=&back=%2Fviewdept%2Easp%3Fguid%3Dlje460830%26cid%3D%26it%3D0%26sp%3D1%26lp%3D1%26ip%3D1%26sql%3D%26did%3D5%26sid%3D0%26lid%3D0&it=10820&ip=0&did=0&sid=0&lid=0

They're also great in cookie dough! icon_lol.gif

mconrey, I used Pastry Pride by the case when I lived in California, but cannot get it since I moved to Tennessee. I am going to check with Costco this morning when they open....... thanks for sharing that info...

makenice99 Posted 21 May 2007 , 6:54pm

Well, the Costco in Nashville does not carry it. It is at the discretion of the managers what products are carried. I can submit a request, but doubtful that one request will be enough. Smart & Final is located only in the Western part of the US, unfortunately icon_sad.gif

SueW Posted 23 May 2007 , 1:46am

I keep looking in my Costco here in NJ but they don't sell it either icon_sad.gif I guess it all depends on where you live icon_cry.gif
