Has anyone tried the CK brand of HiRatio Shortening? I'm sure many already know it's the brand they sell on

I was wondering if it's worth it to try it because Sharon Z says she uses Sweetex but it's $25 more expensive for 50lbs where ever I found it, which I don't remember right now where that was... icon_redface.gif If anyone knows where to get Sweetex Brand cheaper than $85 for 50lbs I'm all ears!!

I figured I could get a few opinions before I made an order.

Thanks in advance!!!

I just purchased Bake Mark brand directly from CK online and it was $52.00 for 50#. Great price and a great product.

I'm wondering how the taste compares. I know w/ regular shortening different brands= different flavors. Does it w/ Hi-Ratio too?
