My Taste Buds Must Be Broken...

After reading endlessly about Rich's Bettercreme I finally was able to track some down.

Well, I'm sorry to say that I didn't like it and neither did my hubby or mom. icon_cry.gif

I really want to like it since it seems so easy and versatile. However, it has a chemical taste and an even worse after taste. Am I the only one who fells this way? Is there anything that can be done to get rid of the chemical taste? I would love to find something with the same texture and consistency and not-too-sweet taste. Any suggestions?

Thanks

What did you use to flavor it?

First batch I made plain just to test it out. After we all tasted it I added some strawberry jam and we tasted it again. The next batch I made I added a package of vanilla pudding and then we tasted again. The pudding one had a pretty good flavor to start with but then there was still that strange aftertaste.

What am I doing wrong? Am I a Bettercreme dummy and don't know what I'm doing? (very likely) icon_smile.gif

Thanks

Even when I add pudding or anything else I always add a flavoring - 99% of the time I use a Torani or DaVinci syrup (French Vanilla and White Chocolate are my two favorites). The only time I remember having a slight chemical taste was when I made it plain, no flavorings, no pudding, no nothing!!!

I couldn't live without this stuff....it's the one my customers ask for most of the time and I love to put it on cupcakes!

I can understand this..no flavoring is like eating cardboard..but then again, I don't like to eat whipped cream by itself, it seems flavorless to me..

We use bettercreme at work all the time......and I can't stand it. It is just fluffy air with chemicals added to me. ......but then again I don't like cake mix cake either.

I only like real whipped cream if it has only a tiny amount of sugar added and if you don't whip it up a lot, so it has a creamy texture, not airy.

Our customers used to order Bettercreme a lot but I am finding that since we started adding real butter to our buttercream, it is the better seller of the two.
