I stumbled upon this since my Bettercreme was not available. It is called Whip n Ice and it is FANTASTIC icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif The best part is that it does not have that aluminium after taste that many complain of..think heavenly vanilla ice cream.
The packaging is exactly the same and it works the same way, liquid to whip.. GREAT product.. here is the link: www.flavorright.com thumbs_up.gif

I just called my local supply store and inquired. It's the brand they carry. Now I'm going to have to try it.

Thanks for mentioning it.

it's not in my local supply store, they only carry the rich's whipped topping. the owner says that the bettercream leaves a very unpleasant taste in her mouth and won't carry it. i really don't want to use the same stuff on my cakes as walmart or sam's so that's why i was curious about this one if it's alot better.

You know what the sad thing is... I live 10 minutes south of Buffalo, where Rich's headquarter's are, and have never tried Bettercreme! icon_surprised.gif I want to so bad, but with so many kids it's impossible for me to leave the house to go to the city and get some icon_cry.gif
I actually considered purchasing it online, but with shipping and the requirement of 3 bulk food items to be purchased it was almost $300...

(actually I haven't ruled that out, I just don't know how I'd explain to my husband why we would have to buy a 2nd freezer icon_rolleyes.gif )

If Whip n Ice is what I'm thinking of....I tried some at a cake show a few years ago and it was soooooooooooo good! It's what Carvel uses to frost their ice cream cakes (East Coast, and maybe only a New England place, lol).

YUMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can purchase Richs whip n ice at Sams for 19.63 for a very large container, I think it is 5 gallons. If you are not a member you can still buy from Sams for 10% more of the item you are buying, so that would be 1.96 more for a total of 21.59. If you live near Concord, North Carolina you can meet me at Sams and just go in with me.
Sams also sells buttercream but the name is not Richs, the name brand is Walmart/Sams and the price is 31.18 for 5 gallons.

I live in Concord- does the Sam's in Kannapolis carry the whip'n'ice? I've never seen it in there before, but I haven't been in a while.

Thanks!

You will need to go to the bakery and ask for it. I have never seen it in the store before either. I called today and asked. I want to try the buttercream and add white chocolate or extracts. I want to play around with it, I do not want my bc to taste like Walmarts or Sams. My son hates the decorating bc.

I go to that Sams, was you wanting to try it also? If you like I can meet you there and we can split the container and the cost. Just let me know. Was you wanting the whip n ice or the buttercreme/buttercream?

Rich's manufactures Bettercreme:
(As well as other frosting/filling/topping products.)

Rich 'n Whip is manufactured Flavor Right and distributed by Instawhip Foods (and perhaps, others):

Usually, the buttercream used by Sam's bakery and Wal-Mart is made by Dawn Food Products, and is called But-R-Creme:
(Similar sounding name to Bettercreme, but Rich's only frosting is Bettercreme - they don't make a buttercream.)

Sorry folks-for some reason I got no updates to this post! I bought the whip n ice at a local wholesale place. It is SCRUMPTIOUS! The only bad point so far as far as decorating goes, is, it is great for boarders etc. but I did a cake with roses and they were not at all crisp. The icing is way to thich and foamy to deliver a crisp rose. Having said that is was super smooth, and most importantly tastes divine.
