This may have been posted before BUT last night I was shopping at Kroger and found 2 different types of REAL shortening. One was Kroger brand, all vegetable shortening. The other was the animal based stuff. It looks like they have recently started stocking it, so it should not go away once it is all sold.
I thought you all might be interested-I was thrilled to find it!

Eww I found the animal based stuff at a store around here and it grossed me out and I had my husband return it. I've found most of the generics still have plenty of trans fats and work well.

You can buy tubs of lard at Wal Mart. That's what the animal based stuff would be. Rendered animal fat. I have yet to see any difference in the



Crisco from the old.

grama J - is the wal-mart brand good? some say it is not a white as the crisco?? tell me what you think, I have a wedding cake coming due next weekend and I purchased the crisco, but if the wal-mart works like the old criso, I definately want to try it.

I don't have a kroger where I live icon_sad.gif

I think animal fat icing sounds disgusting. icon_confused.gificon_biggrin.gif

Walmart brand seems wimpy, I prefer other generic grocery brands.

i believethat lard (animal based ) is used for frying not really for baking

i used no name brand shortening and had a problem with it as well in making icing

Well, I have to agree with the animal based stuff. I thought the same thing-icing made from animal fat drippings-gross!
But, they did have the vegetable shortening as well.
