Has anyone used Henry & Henry Fillings?
Are they worth the money?
Are they thick enough to use as a filling between layers?
What flavors are the best?
How many cups do you think are in one sleeve - 2 lbs???
Is there a website where they can be purchased at a good price?

I want to order some but before I do I want to know what you think about them.

Thanks for your help?

There are 3 cups in a sleeve. I am sure lots of websites have them. Here is the place I get them. http://www.countrykitchensa.com/catalog/SearchResults.aspx?description=pastry%20filling&page=-1 Raspberry is great. And...I love the lemon. Squirt lemon directly into a ready-to-use pie crust add meringue and Done!

I like the raspberry and lemon the best. I don't like the bavarian cream....think that one tastes too artificial.

I ordered the strawberry but haven't used yet, but need to know if they need to be refrigerated if the sleeve hasn't been opened? I haven't opened it yet but once opened I'll probably put in something and freeze if I don't use it all.

I didn't care for the cream cheese. I have a guava, strawberry and lemon that I haven't tried.

Is there an advantage to using these over using regular citrus curds or jams from the market (or dollar store)?

The raspberry is my most requested filling. Pineapple is good and so is the guava but guava is an acquired taste. I use strawberry but I don't care for it because it's too sweet for me but my clients like it.

I use them but only mixed with buttercream. I don't like them alone, I like homemade fillings better. I think they are ok mixed with buttercream though. I get mine from my wholesale supplier.

I use the Dawn sleeved fillings because we havea Dawn warehouse close by. H & H is reportedly one of the best.
