What is the longest time you have kept Sam's club frosting around after opening?? Do you think the taste changes after longer periods of time?

Check the label... I think it says 6 or 8 months at room temperature.

CWR41, Have you actually kept it that long and do you think it tastes the same after that long?

After 5 months... still looks the same and tastes the same.
(I've been searching for a thread from someone who worked at Sam's who would know more, but haven't found it. You might send a PM to KHalstead... she may have an opinion since she uses it exclusively, but I doubt that she'd have any onhand for very long.)

I wrote this in another thread about commercial frostings:
Taste it... you'll definitely know when it's bad and if/when to throw it out.

If the shortening goes rancid, the buttercream won't smell sweet and it will leave a slimy taste on your tongue.

At one of the bakeries I used to work at, we knew exactly when it was really time to throw stuff out from the walk-in coolers because it puffs up and literally explodes the lids off from the buckets and drips down to the floor!
